Greek religion by Jan N Bremmer( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 532 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this brief but highly informative book Jan Bremmer presents an outline of Greek religion in the classical period. After a survey of its main characteristics, he offers a clear and innovative view of the great gods and heroes as well as their sanctuaries and also the main myths, rituals and mysteries: from Athena to Zeus, from sacrifice to the puritan Orphics, from the Indo-European roots to the influence of the ancient Near East. The approach pays attention to the sociological, anthropological and psychological aspects of Greek religion and also to the gender roles. By analyzing the often modern origin of many of the notions employed in the analysis of Greek religion, it also shows the difference between the polytheism of the Greeks and the place of religion in modern Western society."-- back cover

The book discusses the recent reception of Greek and Roman material in modern drama, poetry and film and sets out the artistic and political contexts in which this has taken place. The author emphasises the diversity of reception and reshaping that took place even within antiquity as well as subsequently and shows how the selection, transmission and refiguring of texts can be used to map larger shifts in social and cultural frameworks.

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

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 389 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
Virgil( Book )

Epigram by Niall Livingstone( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 291 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 in 2013 in English and held by 184 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
