The conquest of Gaul by Julius Caesar( Book )

3 editions published between 1954 and 1955 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Caesar portrayed his invasion of Gaul as being a defensive pre-emptive action, most historians agree that the wars were fought primarily to boost Caesar's political career and to pay off his massive debts. Even so, Gaul was extremely important to Rome, as they had been attacked many times by the Gauls. Conquering Gaul allowed Rome to secure the natural border of the river Rhine. Caesar painstakingly describes his military campaign, and this is it is still the most important historical source on the Gaul campaign. -- Amazon

Paston letters by John Warrington( Book )

30 editions published between 1900 and 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Pastons of Norfolk left behind them, in the earliest great collection of family letters in English, an incomparable picture of life in fifteenth-century England -- it's private ambitions, anxieties, hopes, and loves in the midst of political turmoil, local anarchy, and war abroad and at home. The letters, with their wealth of competent, practical writing, illustrate as no other documents can the capacity of the English language at a critical period of its history. Though the letters have long been widely known, they have not been newly edited for over fifty years. Professor Davis has chosen 95 of the most interesting letters, by 26 different writers, and has edited them afresh from the manuscripts, with an introduction, selected criticism, explanatory notes, and a glossary"--Jacket

Poetics by Aristotle( Book )

3 editions published between 1963 and 1966 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together the three most original and influential ancient Greek treatises on literature. Artistotle's Poetics contains his treatment of Greek tragedy: its history, nature, and conventions, with details on poetic diction. Stephen Halliwell makes this seminal work newly accessible with a reliable text and a translation that is both accurate and readable. His authoritative introduction traces the work's debt to earlier theorists (especially Plato), its distinctive argument, and the reasons behind its enduring relevance. The essay On the Sublime, usually attributed to "Longinus" (identity uncertain), was probably composed in the first century A.D.; its subject is the appreciation of greatness ("the sublime") in writing, with analysis of illustrative passages ranging from Homer and Sappho to Plato and Genesis. In this edition, Donald Russell has judiciously revised and newly annotated the text and translation by W. Hamilton Fyfe and provides a new introduction. The treatise On Style, ascribed to an (again unidentifiable) Demetrius, was perhaps composed during the second century B.C. It seems to reflect the theoretical energy of Hellenistic rhetorical works now lost, and is notable particularly for its theory and analysis of four distinct styles (grand, elegant, plain, and forceful). Doreen Innes' fresh rendering of the work is based on the earlier Loeb translation by W. Rhys Roberts. Her new introduction and notes represent the latest scholarship
