Renowned poet A. E. Housman published only two volumes of poetry during his lifetime: A Shropshire Lad, for which he is best remembered, and the equally eloquent Last Poems (1922). Both collections explore many of the same themes. Housman introduced this book, “I publish these poems, few though they are, because it is not likely that I shall ever be impelled to write much more. Another book, More Poems, was published shortly after his death in 1936

Selected prose by A. E Housman( Book )

27 editions published between 1961 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Housman was not only a poet but also a master of a highly individual prose style. Here is a selection of Housman's writings, both scholarly and general, gathered from periodicals and other out-of-the-way sources, which decisively confirms his reputation as a prose stylist. The prefaces, the adversaria and the reviews, in particular, give even the layman an idea of the precision and the penetration of exact scholarship. Housman's comments and judgments on other men illuminated his own nature: withdrawn, austere, even crusty, yet gentle with the unassuming; ruthless in exposure of arrogance and pretension

Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )

111 editions published between 1903 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MARCUS MANILIUS, who lived in the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, is the author of the earliest treatise on astrology we possess. He tells us hardly anything about himself, and is not mentioned by any other writer. His Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, begins with an account of celestial phenomena, and then proceeds to treat of the signs of the zodiac and the twelve temples; there follow instructions for calculating the horoscoping degree, and details of chronocrators, decans, injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, and other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams in verse form, the poet writes with some passion about his Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour in his character sketches of persons born under particular stars. Perhaps taking a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable length. In spite of its undoubted elegance, the Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides in addition to the first English prose translation a full guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and illustrative figures

The classical papers of A.E. Housman by A. E Housman( Book )

22 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A complete collection, in three volumes, of the classical articles and reviews of A.E. Housman. These papers were originally published between 1882 and 1936 in a variety of academic journals, many of which are now difficult to obtain. The editors have checked and, where necessary, supplemented and updated all the references and corrected errors in them, but have otherwise presented each paper, in full, with the minimum of editorial comment. At the end of Volume III there are very elaborate and comprehensive indexes of passages, words and topics discussed by Houston. The Kleine Schriften of great scholars are among the most important and useful tools of the classicist's trade. This edition will be of the first importance among such collections and will provide an essential work of reference. Housman's known virtues as a textual critic are decisively confirmed and emphasized now that his papers can be seen in one complete and connected sequence

D. Iunii Iuvenalis Saturae by Juvenal( Book )

61 editions published between 1905 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pět satirických knih, zahrnujících celkem šestnáct satir, představuje patrně celé dílo římského básníka, narozeného pravděpodobně kolem r. 60 n. l. za vlády císaře Nerona, autora ceněného vedle Horatia, Vergilia a Terentia jak ve středověku, tak i v novověku. Satirické verše, které nejčastěji formou listu k určitému adresátovi pranýřující zvrácenost, necitelnost a nespravedlnost společenského ústrojí Říma druhé pol. 1. stol. n. l., zaměřují se především proti mocným a bohatým příslušníkům nejvyšší třídy, proti urozeným ženám, také proti Řekům, Orientálcům a Egypťanům, vnášejícím do Říma rozkladné prvky helenistické a orientální kultury a pod. Kritické vydání opatřené četnými poznámkami je pořízeno podle vydání L. Friedlaendera (Lipsko 1895) a přihlíží i k novým kritickým vydáním
