Greek religion by Jan N Bremmer( Book )

Ancient Greek religion was embedded in society rather than comprising a separate institution. Practice was communal and public, without a religious establishment, although there were priests. It was dominated by men, and communicated orally without written sources. Belief was polytheistic, with no strong boundaries for sacred versus profane. The focus of belief was on the present life, and social meaning and order were maintained through the religion

Roman oratory by C. E. W Steel( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When and why did men speak in public at Rome and why did they subsequently write down what they had said? This book offers an introduction to public speaking at Rome from its origins until the second century AD. It looks at how orators were supposed to behave and how they were trained: and what the behaviour and training of orators can tell us about the things which the Roman elite in general considered important, given that being a good speaker was a skill very highly valued in the culture."--Jacket

Epigram by Niall Livingstone( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is an introduction to the ancient genre of epigram, short poems literally written or inscribed 'on' an object or figuratively 'on' a topic. The authors set out what epigram means and why it matters, exploring its roots in inscriptions on stone and its literary flourishing in the Hellenistic world after Alexander. They further trace its migration from Greece to Rome, where its most famous exponent was Martial, and consider the continuation of Greek epigram under the Roman empire in the so-called 'Second Sophistic'. The final chapter shows how Greek epigram achieved new importance in the nineteenth century as raw material for stories about the classical past."--Page 4 of cover

Homer by R. B Rutherford( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It provides a wide variety of readers with a clear and reasonably detailed introduction to the Iliad and the Odyssey, and to the problems which arise in dating, contextualizing and interpreting these two epics, which are among the earliest poetic texts to come down to us from the ancient Greek world. A substantial introductory chapter discusses the so-called Homeric Question, the question of the identity and origins of 'Homer'. Among the important topics considered are the debate over oral composition, the structure, plot and themes of the two epics, and the religious and ethical ideas which figure in the poems; also discussed are characterization, speeches, similes, symbolism and irony. An extensive bibliography gives expert guidance on these and many other aspects of these extraordinary poems. -- Back cover
