The war at Troy; what Homer didn't tell by Quintus( Book )

88 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 1,290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quintus was a poet who lived at Smyrna some four hundred years after Christ. His work, in fourteen books, is a bold and generally underrated attempt in Homer's style to complete the story of Troy from the point at which the Iliad closes. Quintus tells us the stories of Penthesilea, the Amazonian queen; Memnon, leader of the Ethiopians; the death of Achilles; the contest for Achilles' arms between Ajax and Odysseus; the arrival of Philoctetes; and the making of the wooden horse. The poem ends with the departure of the Greeks and the great storm which by the wrath of heaven shattered their fleet. -- JACKET
Longinus On the sublime by Longinus( Book )

19 editions published between 1899 and 2011 in English and Greek, Modern and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the 1907 second edition of W. Rhys Roberts' Longinus on the Sublime. The volume contains the Greek text edited after the Paris manuscript, an extensive introduction, and a thorough and accessible translation of the main text. Roberts' introduction is divided into two parts: the authorship of the Treatise, and its content and character. Roberts is careful to place On the Sublime in its critical context, challenging both the inscription and description of this classical text. The author is thought to be an unknown teacher, and not the historical Longinus, whilst the 'sublime' in this instance is not 'the sublime' as we would commonly understand it. On the Sublime is a text which dissects the problems of literary criticism and the aesthetics of Greek literature. The lively and intelligent style of the text will ensure that Roberts' edition is enjoyed by Greek scholars and general readers alike

Theocritus, Moschus, Bion by Theocritus( Book )

5 editions published between 1913 and 2014 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theocritus (early third century BCE), born in Syracuse and also active on Cos and at Alexandria, was the inventor of the bucolic genre. Like his contemporary Callimachus, Theocritus was a learned poet who followed the aesthetic, developed a generation earlier by Philitas of Cos (LCL 508), of refashioning traditional literary forms in original ways through tightly organized and highly polished work on a small scale (thus the traditional generic title Idylls: "little forms"). Although Theocritus composed in a variety of genres or generic combinations, including encomium, epigram, hymn, mime, and epyllion, he is best known for the poems set in the countryside, mostly dialogues or song-contests, that combine lyric tone with epic meter and the Doric dialect of his native Sicily to create an idealized and evocatively described pastoral landscape, whose lovelorn inhabitants, presided over by the Nymphs, Pan, and Priapus, use song as a natural mode of expression. The bucolic/pastoral genre was developed by the second and third members of the Greek bucolic canon, Moschus (fl. mid second century BCE, also from Syracuse) and Bion (fl. some fifty years later, from Phlossa near Smyrna), and remained vital through Greco-Roman antiquity and into the modern era."
Argonautica by Apollonius( Book )

5 editions published between 1891 and 1901 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apollonius Rhodius's Argonautica, composed in the third century B.C.E., is the epic retelling of Jason's quest for the golden fleece. Along with his contemporaries Callimachus and Theocritus, Apollonius refashioned Greek poetry to meet the interests and aesthetics of a Hellenistic audience, especially that of Alexandria in the Ptolemaic period following Alexander's death. In this carefully crafted work of 5,835 hexameter verses in four books, the author draws on the preceding literary traditions of epic (Homer), lyric (Pindar), and tragedy (especially Euripides) but creates an innovative and complex narrative that includes geography, religion, ethnography, mythology, adventure, exploration, human psychology, and, most of all, the coming of age and love affair of Jason and Medea. It greatly influenced Roman authors such as Catullus, Virgil, and Ovid, and was imitated by Valerius Flaccus." "This new edition of the first volume in the Loeb Classical Library offers a fresh translation and an improved text."--Jacket
