Essays on Roman satire by William S Anderson( Book )

16 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fifteen essays collected here argue that Roman verse satire should be viewed primarily as an art form, rather than as a social document or a direct expression of social protest. Originally published between 1956 and 1974, they constitute an impressive attempt to free Roman satire from misinterpretations that arose during the romantic era and that continue to plague scholars in the field. The author rejects the proposition that Juvenal and other satirists expressed spontaneous, unadorned anger and that the critic's best approach is the study of the historical, social, economic and personal circumstances that led to their statement of that anger. This work develops his thesis that Roman satire was designed as a literary form and that the proper stance of the critic is to elucidate its art. Focusing on the dramatic character of the first-person speaker in the satires of Horace, Persius and Juvenal, the author shows both how the speaker's role was shaped to suit the purposes of the individual poems and how that role changed over successive collections of satires. Several essays also discuss the ways in which the satirists employed metaphors and similes and used contemprary ethical and rhetorical themes

Approaches to teaching Vergil's Aeneid( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vergil's Aeneid has been the most continually read and discussed work by a Roman author in the history of Western literature. Yet it can be a challenging work to teach--Vergil is a complex, subtle poet; his culture and time are removed from us; and Latin is less studied in college than it was a generation ago. This volume of essays is addressed primarily to the nonclassically trained instructor who will be teaching Vergil's epic in translation

The metamorphoses of Ovid by Ovid( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in Latin and German and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in Latin in the early years of the first century by the Roman poet Ovid, the "Metamorphoses" presents a collection of amazing tales of transformation based on Greek mythology and legend. Michael Simpson's prose translation of Ovid's masterpiece in the rapid and direct American idiom catches the swiftness and clarity of the Latin original. His introduction sketches the poet's life, describes his extant works, discusses his unusual exile to the west coast of the Black Sea (where he died), and provides a useful context for reading the "Metamorphoses." Simpson has also prepared extensive endnotes that serve as mini-essays, illuminating the manifold aspects of the poem and offering commentary and interpretation that enable readers to enter Ovid's magical world and enjoy its richness

Defining genre and gender in Latin literature : essays presented to William S. Anderson on his seventy-fifth birthday( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Roman confrontation and assimilation of Greek literature entailed a scrutiny, critique, and adaptation of generic assumptions. This book considers the ways in which major genres - among them comedy, lyric, elegy, epic, and the novel - were redefined to accommodate Roman concerns and the ways in which gender plays a role in generic definition and authorial self-definition. Both of these areas of research have been important to William S. Anderson throughout his career. This collection of essays by his students helps readers to understand the nature of Roman literary self-definition, as it honors Professor Anderson's own achievements in this field."--Jacket
