"A book about romantic love, Eros is Anne Carson's exploration of the concept of "eros" in both classical philosophy and literature.

Gass's On Being Blue" -- Jacket

Pointing at the past : from formula to performance in Homeric poetics by Egbert J Bakker( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building on his earlier work, Bakker demonstrates the power of discourse analysis, in this case a detailed analysis of the language of "deixis" as an essential tool for elucidating the poetics of the Homeric tradition. The book deals with such varied topics as epic formulas, grammatical tense, and the celebrated "vividness" of the Homeric poems."--Jacket
The life and miracles of Thekla : a literary study by Scott Fitzgerald Johnson( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Life and Miracles of Thekla offers a unique view on the reception of classical and early Christian literature in Late Antiquity. This study examines the Life and Miracles as an intricate example of Greek writing and attempts to situate the work amidst a wealth of similar literary forms from the classical world. While the author of the Life and Miracles remains anonymous, his role is crucial in updating and claiming Thekla's legend for his own endeavour. This study represents a detailed investigation into the literary character of this ambitious Greek work from Late Antiquity."--Jacket

Dialoguing in late antiquity by Averil Cameron( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christians talked, debated, and wrote dialogues in late antiquity and on throughout Byzantium. Some were philosophical, others more literary, theological, or Platonic; Aristotle also came into the picture as time went on. Sometimes the written works claim to be records of actual public debates, and we know that many such debates did take place and continued to do so. 'Dialoguing in Late Antiquity' takes up a challenge laid down by recent scholars who argue that a wall of silence came down in the fifth century AD, after which Christians did not 'dialogue.' Averil Cameron now returns to questions raised in her book 'Christianity and the Rhetoric of Empire' (1991), drawing on the large repertoire of surviving Christian dialogue texts from late antiquity to make a forceful case for their centrality in Greek literature from the second century and the Second Sophistic onward. At the same time, 'Dialoguing in Late Antiquity' points forward to the long and neglected history of dialogue in Byzantium. Throughout this study, Cameron engages with current literary approaches and is a powerful advocate for the greater integration of Christian texts by literary scholars and historians alike"--

Dreaming across boundaries : the interpretation of dreams in Islamic lands( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Narratives of dreams abound in the literatures of the Near East and North Africa. Such narratives, together with discussions of the significance and interpretation of dreams, feature in a wide variety of writings drawn from literary, historiographical, philosophical, religious, and medical disciplines. In a series of close studies of dream narratives, each carefully situated in its historical and literary context, this volume of twelve essays explores the diverse functions of dreams, including divination and prediction, personal reflection and resolution, and theological argument. Among the themes examined in the articles are the reception and development of Greek and Hellenistic treatments of dreams, the role of dreams in addressing and sometimes resolving conflicting theological points of view, dreams as a medium for communication with the dead, and the predictive and legitimizing role of royal dreams in the advent of new dynasties. In the context of these varied personal reflections, theological speculations, and political aspirations, which are often closely inter-related, the contributors to the collection present insights into the social history and cultural diversity of several pre-modern Muslim societies."--Jacket

The art of reading : from Homer to Paul Celan by Jean Bollack( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Art of Reading is the first--long overdue--collection of essays by the French classical philologist and humanist Jean Bollack to be published in English. As the scope of the collection demonstrates, Bollack felt at home thinking in depth about two things that seem starkly different to most other thinkers. We see on the one hand the classics of Greek poetry and philosophy, including the relatively obscure but in his hands illuminating re-readings of Greek philosophy by the doxographers. Then, on the other hand, there is modern, including contemporary, poetry. The author of monumental commentaries on the Oedipus Tyrannos of Sophocles and on the fragments of Empedocles, Bollack cultivated in himself and in a generation of students (academics and others) a way to read both sets of texts closely that is as uncompromising and demanding of the interpreter as it is of the reader of the interpretation. The results, which this wide-ranging but compact collection brings to mind, are designed to get beyond flat and clichéd approaches to familiar works and to awaken the reader anew to the aesthetics, the complexity, and the intelligence that careful reconstruction of the text can bring to light."--Publisher's description
The early Greek concept of the soul by Jan N Bremmer( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 2005 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bremmer's goal is to present a picture of the historical development of beliefs regarding the soul in ancient Greece. He begins with the archaic age and Homeric epics, where the psyche is a 'free' soul which belongs to an individual and can leave the body -- in dreams, swoons, trances -- while the body is alive ... One of Bremmer's major contributions is to propose that Greek views of the soul should be characterized as multiple rather than dualistic. Further, we should consider the rather negative attitude toward the continued existence of the psyche after bodily death as arising in social conditions which valued the life of the community above the survival of the dead individual."--Back cover
Persian literature and Judeo-Persian culture : collected writings of Sorour S. Soroudi by Sarah Sorour Soroudi( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dr. Sorour S. Soroudi (1938-2002) of the Department of Iranian Studies at the Hebrew University began her scholarly career as a specialist in the neglected field of modern Persian poetry. Her studies and translations did much to bring this poetry to the attention of critics and scholars. In later years, Dr. Soroudi turned her attention to Judeo-Persian literature and folk culture. Her continuing literary studies, combined with extensive fieldwork, produced major contributions to the study of the history and culture of Iranian Jewry. This volume, meticulously and sensitively edited by Houchang E. Chehabi, brings together many of Dr. Soroudi's published articles in these two areas. Included in this book is a previously unpublished piece as well as an article that appears here in English for the first time."--Jacket
