A dictionary of Latin words and phrases by James Morwood( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and Latin and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Dictionary of Latin Words and Phrases is a handy reference for all kinds of writing, as well as an absorbing collection of phrases, mottoes, proverbs, and sayings. From the memorable annus horribilis to the historic sic semper tyrannis, this new dictionary offers a fresh look at a language which has retained its influence and color." "Along with clear translations and pronunciation guidance, sources from literature and history are annotated with fascinating descriptions and explanations that place the phrases in context. Familiar and amusing proverbs are included and easily found in a separate listing and an A-Z listing of all Latin authors cited includes outlines of their lives and works."--Jacket
Iphigenia among the Taurians ; Bacchae ; Iphigenia at Aulis ; Rhesus by Euripides( Book )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the second of three volumes of a new prose translation, with introduction and notes, of eleven of Euripides' most exciting plays. Iphigenia among the Taurians, set on the Black Sea at the edge of the known world, is much more than a nail-biting story of escape. It is remarkable for its sensitive delineation of character as it weighs Greek against barbarian civilization. Bacchae, a profound exploration of the human psyche, deals with the appalling consequences of resistance to Dionysus, god of wine and unfettered emotion. This tragedy, which above all others speaks to our post-Freudian era, is one of Euripides' two last surviving plays. The second, Iphigenia at Aulis, so vastly different as to highlight the playwright's Protean invention, centres on the ultimate dysfunctional family, that of Agamemnon, as natural emotion is tested in the tragic crucible of the Greek expedition against Troy. Rhesus, probably the work of another playwright, deals with a grisly event in the Trojan War. Like Iphigenia at Aulis, its 'suspect is war and the pity of war', but it is also a thrilling, action-packed theatrical Iliad in miniature."--Jacket

A commentary on Propertius, Book 3 by Sextus Propertius( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most passionate, individual, and controversial of the Latin love elegists, Propertius in Book 3 covers a broad range of subject matter and a vast geographical reach. After books focused on his mistress Cynthia, he maintains his elegiac role but expands his range to provide a lover's commentary on life, discussing luxury, nudity, art, the empire, and the dangers of travel for profit and war. This detailed commentary uses the text recently published in the Oxford Classical Texts series, and sets out to build on the richness of the material in the book by providing clear introductions to the genres the poems explore - the Greek elegy of Callimachus, epic, tragedy, hymn and epigram - and to topics such as patronage, philosophy, and the images of love as slavery and as warfare

The tragedies of Sophocles by James Morwood( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study provides separate discussions of each of Sophocles' seven plays: 'Ajax', 'Women of Trachis', 'Antigone', 'Oedipus the King', 'Electra', 'Philoctetes', and 'Oedipus at Colonus'. It sets these between a chapter that outlines modern approaches to Greek tragedy and a final chapter that spotlights a key moment in the reception of each work. Focusing on the tragedies' dramatic power and the challenges with which they confront an audience, the book refuses to confine them within a supposedly Sophoclean template. They are seven unique works, only alike in the fact that they are all major masterpieces
