De la servitude volontaire, ou, Contr'un by Estienne de La Boétie( Book )

8 editions published in 1963 in French and French, Middle and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El Discurso de la servidumbre voluntaria es obra juvenil de La Boétie. En ella, influido por las terribles represalias que se ejercen por Montmorency, bajo Enrique II, en Burdeos y en toda Guyena en 1548, declama, más bien que clama, contra la tiranía, utilizando la retórica de los clásicos griegos y latinos. Considera incomprensible el sometimiento, no al gobierno, sino a las ambiciones y concupiscencias de uno solo: de un tirano. Su conocimiento de los Antiguos le permite abordar el problema del poder desde su ontología, escribiendo el primer tratado moderno que se ocupa de manera frontal y directa del proceloso tema de la dominación del hombre por el hombre en el marco de la comunidad política laica. Su clarividencia le lleva abordar el tema del poder en una dimensión tan profunda, que sin renunciar a ser un clásico, su obra se convierte también en una relectura imprescindible en el angustiado mundo de la postmodernidad
The Aeneid by Virgil( Book )

30 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeneas, the hero escapes from the carnage of the Trojan War and embarks on a treacherous series of adventures that eventually lead him to the future site of Rome. Unlike other modern translators of Vergil, who forgo meter entirely or use iambic pentameter (the meter of Shakespeare and other English poets), this translator uses dactylic hexameter, the meter used by Vergil and by all ancient writers of epic poetry, beginning with Homer. Elaborate or esoteric language is avoided and instead a clear, unadorned diction is used to capture Vergil's masterful simplicity
