Epigrams by Martial( Book )

1,244 editions published between 1470 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 5,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his epigrams, Martial (c. 40-c. 103 CE) is a keen, sharp-tongued observer of Roman scenes and events, including the new Colosseum, country life, a debauchee's banquet, and the eruption of Vesuvius. His poems are sometimes obscene, in the tradition of the genre, sometimes affectionate or amusing, and always pointed

20 editions published between 1999 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ohne Martial lässt sich die Gesellschaft der römischen Kaiserzeit nicht verstehen. Seine Epigramme bilden ein Sittengemälde des antiken Großstadtlebens in allen seinen Facetten. "Nach Mensch schmeckt jede Seite von mir"" (hominem pagina nostra sapit). Die zweisprachige Gesamtausgabe versucht erstmals in einer deutschen Prosaübersetzung die Gedankenbewegung der Epigramme nuanciert zu erfassen. Eine Einführung und ein Sachkommentar erschließen zusätzlich das Werk eines Dichters, auf den nicht nur unser Begriff des "Plagiats" zurückgeht, sondern der in seinen Epigrammen so etwas wie den Gesellsch

36 editions published between 1860 and 1992 in English and Latin and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martial, the father of the epigram, was one of the brilliant provincial poets who made their literary mark on first-century Rome. His Epigrams can be affectionate or cruel, elegiac or playful; they target every element of Roman society, from slaves to schoolmasters to, above all, the aristocratic elite

Selected epigrams by Martial( Book )

23 editions published between 1629 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This translation captures the wit and uncensored bawdiness of the epigrams of Martial, who satirized Roman society, both high and low, in the first century CE. His pithy little poems amuse, but also offer vivid insight into the world of patrons and clients, doctors and lawyers, prostitutes, slaves, and social climbers in ancient Rome.--Publisher's description

Despite his enduring popularity, Martial has recently suffered from serious critical neglect. The present work is the first edition of selections from Martial to be published for decades, and the first ever to include a fully representative selection of the oeuvre of the poet, who has often been criticised, unfairly, the authors argue, for obscenity and flattery of the Emperor Domitian. The epigrams included in the selection are organised under various heads, e.g. Martial and poetry, sexual mores, satirical pieces. A very full introduction deals with such topics as the prejudices and predilections of his audience which conditioned Martial's choice of subject matter, Martial's language, the structure and style of the epigrams, the epigrammatic tradition and Martial's creative engagement with it. The detailed commentary is suitable for use with undergraduates and is distinguished by its focus on social history as well as literary interpretation
M. Valerii Martialis Liber spectaculorum by Martial( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and Latin and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first full-scale edition of the surviving epigrams from the so-called Liber spectaculorum by Martial, a thematically unified collection celebrating highlights from games held under imperial sponsorship in Flavian Rome. The poems have been preserved in various combinations in six medieval florilegia, and are augmented by two from the Florilegium Gallicum that were first attributed to the collection in the sixteenth century." "Each epigram is accompanied by an apparatus criticus, an English translation, an introduction, and a detailed commentary discussing matters of linguistic, literary, and historical interest. To elucidate these allusive poems, a wide range of evidence is adduced from epigraphy and art as well as works of literature."--Jacket

Book XIII : the Xenia by Martial( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in English and Latin and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although both innovative and engaging, Book XIII of Martial's epigrams, the Xenia, has generally been neglected. As its name suggests, it is concerned with presents, in particular those given at the Saturnalia by hosts to their dinner guests. Like the Apophoreta, which Martial published next, it comprises independent poetic couplets cast as descriptive gift-tags. Far from being mere verse catalogues, however, these books are highly sophisticated literary compositions. Whereas the Apophoreta encompass many different items, the Xenia are devoted to food and drink, and are carefully ordered to reflect the courses of the cena at which they might have been distributed." "This edition contains the first commentary devoted exclusively to the Xenia. It combines literary and textual comment with close attention to the social and cultural context, and will therefore be of value not only to specialists in Latin literature but also to anyone interested in the food and festivals of Ancient Rome."--Jacket

Martial art by Brendan Kennelly( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman satirist Martial is brought up to date by a partner in mischief in Kennelly's Martial Art. In brief punchy poems he tries to define happiness, with candour and playful compassion. Kennelly's Martial is a sharp, visionary writer: savagely attentive and bitingly articulate
