The letters of Alciphron, Aelian and Philostratus by Alciphron( Book )

78 editions published between 1946 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Letters of Alciphron (second century CE) constitute one of the most attractive products of the Second Sophistic. They are fictitious compositions based on an astonishingly wide variety of circumstances, though the theme of erotic love is constantly sounded. The imagination shown by the author and his convincing realism win him a place of distinction in the early development of romantic prose. The letters, which are highly literary, owing much to the New Comedy of Menander, purport to give us a sketch of the social life of Athens in the fourth century BCE. The collection is arranged in four divisions: Letters of Fishermen; Farmers; Parasites; Courtesans. Senders and addressees are mostly invented characters, but in the last section Alciphron presents us with several attempts at historical fiction, the most engaging being an exchange of letters between Menander and Glycera. This volume also includes twenty Letters of Farmers ascribed to Aelian (c.170-235 CE) and a collection of seventy-three Erotic Epistles of Philostratus (probably Flavius of that name, also born c. 170 CE). In style and subject matter these resemble those of Alciphron, by whom they may have been influenced
Alciphronis rhetoris epistularum libri IV by Alciphron( Book )

209 editions published between 1606 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces 123 lettres sont censées avoir été écrites par des pêcheurs, des paysans, des parasites et des courtisanes en Attique, au IVe siècle avant notre ère. Elles décrivent donc des personnages qui font davantage penser à la comédie qu'à la vie réelle. Elles montrent comment un homme de lettres comme Alciphron se représentait l'âge d'or de la Grèce classique
