Collected works of Erasmus by Desiderius Erasmus( )

20 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and held by 2,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'A knowledge of proverbs contributes to a number of things,' wrote Erasmus in his Introduction to the Adages, 'but to four especially: philosophy, persuasiveness, grace and charm in speaking, and the understanding of the best authors...' This volume contains the second 500 of the more than 4000 adages gathered and commented on by Erasmus, sometimes in a few lines and sometimes in full-scale essays. The notes 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. Many of the proverbs cited by Erasmus are still in our common stock of speech

Adages Ii1 to Iv100 by Desiderius Erasmus( )

6 editions published between 1982 and 2016 in English and held by 1,337 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

Bede's ecclesiastical history of the English people by Bede( Book )

57 editions published between 1969 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, completed in 731, is a masterpiece of historical writing. Bede's clear narrative, his scrupulous sifting of evidence and his vigorous pursuit of information from many sources written and oral are all features which commend themselves to modern readers. The work was read in every part of Europe throughout the Middle Ages, and today it still remains the best-known text to have survived from Anglo-Saxon England. From its pages we learn the stories of Edwin and Oswald, Cuthbert and Caedmon, and many more which have become an indelible part of English national consciousness

Carmina by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )

89 editions published between 1914 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The works of poet Catullus have long been a companion for both lovers and those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter. Carmina captures his mordant, scathing wit and also the concise tenderness, the famous love for reluctant Lesbia who is made present in these new versions. This new translation provides a range of meters and rhymes that evoke the epigrammatic power of the many modes and moods of this most engaging, erotic, and influential of the Latin poets
Virgil's Georgics by Virgil( Book )

38 editions published between 1986 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 706 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 inthe 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 thepoetry
