Approaches to teaching Vergil's Aeneid( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 360 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

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

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 160 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

Essays on Roman satire by William S Anderson( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
