Martial, the unexpected classic : a literary and historical study by J. P Sullivan( )

27 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in English and held by 2,289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first full-length study in English of the Roman poet Martial's life, poetry and politics, as well as of the survival of his fifteen books of epigrams and short poems from his death around AD 104 to the present. The subjects examined include his defence of epigram as an art form, his misogyny and obscenity, his style, wit and humour, and, not least, his imperial propaganda. The concluding part of the work examines his high reputation in the Renaissance and the later censorship and neglect of his work until comparatively recently. All the material is presented for a modern objective assessment of his achievement, without in any way disguising the unpleasant aspects of his genius, and the political and literary pressures on poets in Rome at that period
Modern critical theory and classical literature( )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 1,616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent decades the study of literature in Europe and the Americas has been profoundly influenced by modern critical theory in its various forms, whether Structuralism or Deconstructionism, Hermeneutics, Reader-Response Theory or Rezeptionsasthetik, Semiotics or Narratology, Marxist, feminist, neo-historical, psychoanalytical or other perspectives. Whilst the value and validity of such approaches to literature is still a matter of some dispute, not least among classical scholars, they have had a substantial impact on the study both of classical literatures and of the mentalite of Greece and Rome. In an attempt to clarify issues in the debate, the eleven contributors to this volume were asked to produce a representative collection of essays to illustrate the applicability of some of the new approaches to Greek and Latin authors or literary forms and problems. The scope of the volume was deliberately limited to literary investigation, broadly construed, of Greek and Roman authors. Broader areas of the history and culture of the ancient world impinge in the essays, but are not their central focus. The volume also contains a separate bibliography, offering for the first time a complete bibliography of classical studies which incorporate modern critical theory

Critical essays on Roman literature by J. P Sullivan( Book )

"First published in 1962, this book is the first of two volumes which bridge the gap between the study of classics and the study of literature and attempt to reconcile the two disciplines. Focusing on elegy and lyric, this collection of essays offers a critical examination of Latin literature and aims to stimulate critical discussion of a selection of Latin poets. This experimental and ground-breaking book will be of particular interest to students of Roman Literature, Classics and Poetry."--Provided by publisher
The Satyricon of Petronius; a literary study by J. P Sullivan( Book )

21 editions published between 1958 and 1968 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satyricon by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

23 editions published between 1965 and 2011 in English and held by 739 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satyricon is the most celebrated work of fiction to have survived from the ancient world. It can be described as the first realistic novel, the father of the picaresque genre. It recounts the sleazy progress of a pair of literate scholars as they wander through the cites of the southern Mediterranean, encountering en route type-figures whom the author wishes to satirize - a teacher in higher education, a libidinous priest, a vulgar freedman turned millionaire, a manic poet, a superstitious sea-captain, a femme fatale. The novel has fascinated the literary world of Europe ever since, evoking praise for its elegant and hilarious description of the underside of Roman society, but also condemnation for some of its lubricous subjects; most recently it formed the subject of Fellini's controversial film

Epigrams of Martial by Martial( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 281 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

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 213 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Martial in English by Martial( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Elizabethan times, writers like Jonson, Herrick, Cowley and Byron translated (or adapted to the London of their day) Martial's portraits of poseurs, prostitutes and philosophers, legacy hunters and social climbers. His urbanity and sharply polished wit helped inspire Pope's heroic couplets and Swift's savage irony. Although Romantics and Victorians tended to react against Martial's obscenity and fulsome flattery of his imperial masters, he always retained a reputation as an underground classic and then became an important model for Ezra Pound. Recent poets, as J.P. Sullivan and A.J. Boyle explain in their Introduction, have also found in his work 'a fully realized, if sometimes sombre world, which alternately fascinates and disquiets'
