Georgics by Virgil( Book )

29 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil's Georgics, considered to be one of the great poems of Western literature, is ostensibly a didactic poem on agriculture. Challenging this idea, the late Sir Roger Mynors argues that the poem's true subject is humanity and its place in nature and society. The poem is also a landmark in the use of the natural world as material for literature and of special interest because the poet draws not only on his own experience but also on his wide reading of Greek poetry. This commentary examines Virgil's meaning and choice of expression to provide a fuller understanding of the poetry

Collected works of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

32 editions published between 1977 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume covers a number of significant events and issues in Erasmus' life and in the history of his times
The correspondence of Erasmus : letters 1252 to 1355 : 1522 to 1523 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

14 editions published between 1989 and 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A special feature of this volume is the first fully annotated translation of Erasmus' Catalogues Iucubrationum (Ep 1341 A), an extremely important document for the study of Erasmus' life and works and of the controversies they aroused
The correspondence of Erasmus : letters 1122 to 1251 ; 1520 to 1521 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

10 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The predominant theme of this volume of letters dating from 1528 is Erasmus' controversies with his critics and opponents. The publication in March of the dialogue Ciceronianus, for example, provoked an uproar in France because it included an ironic jest that was considered insulting to the great French humanist Guillaume Bud & Even more serious were the ongoing efforts of conservative Catholics in France and Italy (such as Noel Beda and Alberto Pio) and in Spain (members of the religious orders) to prove not only that Erasmus harboured Lutheran sentiments but also that humanist scholarship was the source of the Lutheran heresy. In response to these charges Erasmus wrote letters and books in which he vigorously defended his orthodoxy and assiduously cultivated support among the princes and prelates of Europe
The correspondence of Erasmus : letters 993 to 1121 ; 1519 to 1520 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2016 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The volume features several memorable letters by Thomas More that testify to his integrity and clear-sightedness, his capacity for sober self-assessment and restraint combined with charity. It also contains one of Erasmus' most famous letters, Ep 999, which paints a subtle and sparkling pen portrait of More, the man and the Christian
The correspondence of Erasmus, letters 594 to 841, 1517 to 1518 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is of particular interest because more than half the letters derive from the Deventer Letter-book, into which Erasmus had his amaneunses copy incoming and outgoing letters, among them many which were truly private rather than composed with a mind to subsequent publication

Adages Ii1 to Iv100 by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in English and Spanish and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Erasmus' Adagia has been called 'one of the world's biggest bedside books, ' and certainly the more than 4000 proverbs and maxims gathered and commented on by Erasmus, sometimes in a few lines and sometimes in full-scale essays, have great appeal for both scholar and educated layman. The aim of the Adages was to recapture, in this handy portmanteau form, the outlook and way of life of the classical world through its customs, legends, and social institutions, and to put within reach of a modern public the accumulated wisdom of the past. Each adage is traced in the works of as many authors as Erasmus had to hand; always an authority is given (usually several) and often a close reference providing chapter and verse. The commentaries in the Adages give a forthright and often eloquent expression of Erasmus' opinions on the world of his day, dovetailing with his satirical works on the one hand and his popular evangelical writings on the other. Many, if not most, of the proverbs cited by Erasmus are still in our common stock of speech today. The Collected Works of Erasmus is providing the first complete translation of Erasmus' Adagia. This volume contains the initial 300 adages with notes that identify the classical sources and indicate how Erasmus' reading and thinking developed over the quarter-century spanned by the eight revisions of the original work
The correspondence of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the letters 1523-4, Erasmus' mounting anger at the authors of these attacks goes hand in hand with his slowly formed decision to publish a book against Luther on free will
