Lucian by Lucian( Book )

23 editions published between 1915 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

LUCIAN (c. 120-190 A.D.) the satirist from Samosata on the Euphrates, started as an apprentice sculptor, turned to rhetoric and visited Italy and Gaul as a successful travelling lecturer, before settling in Athens and developing his original brand of satire. Late in life he fell on hard times and accepted an official post in Egypt. Although notable for the Attic purity and elegance of his Greek and his literary versatility, Lucian is chiefly famed for the dialogues in which he satirises human folly, superstition and hypocrisy. His aim was to amuse rather than to instruct. Among his best works are A True Story (the tallest of tall stories about a voyage to the moon), Dialogues of the Gods (a 'reductio ad absurdum' of traditional mythology), Dialogues of the Dead (on the vanity of human wishes), Philosophies for Sale (great philosophers of the past are auctioned off as slaves), The Fisherman (the degeneracy of modern philosophers), The Carousal (philosophers misbehave at a party), Timon (the problems of being rich), Twice accused (Lucian's defence of his literary career) and (if by Lucian) The ass (the amusing adventures of a man who turned into an ass)

The volume provides readers with an extensive introduction, a new translation, and a full literary and philological updated commentary of Lucian?s The Ship or The Whishes. In the introduction there's an explanation of the structure and the dating of the dialogue, of the author's poetics and the peculiar features of the work: the relationship with the literary traditions, the connection with contemporary reality, the psychological characterisation of characters, the stylistic and lexical features. The comment offers a systematic dissertation on linguistic, historical, artistic and sociocultural aspects of the text, in order to provide a complete undestanding of the work and of its author's personality
