Thomas Heywood's Art of love : the first complete English translation of Ovid's Ars amatoria by Ovid( Book )

150 editions published between 1924 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C'est aux environs immédiats de l’ère chrétienne qu’Ovide compose et publie son Traité de l’Amour, plus connu sous le nom d’Art d’Aimer. Le poète, célébré pour Les Amours et Les Héroïdes, se fait docteur ès amours et livre à son lecteur trois leçons magistrales, pleines d’humour et de grâce. Où rencontrer les femmes ? Comment s’attacher ses conquêtes ? Comment plaire à un homme ? Telles sont les questions auxquelles répondent les trois livres de cette grammaire amoureuse. - Site de l'éditeur www.lesbelleslettres.com
The loves ; The art of beauty ; The remedies for love ; and the art of love by Ovid( Book )

102 editions published between 1930 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Si le lecteur, qui tient en mains ce livre, n'aime pas la légèreté, l'élégance, la grâce, le badinage, s'il ignore que 1e sérieux est compatible avec la futilité, qu'il ne l'ouvre pas, et qu'il condamne son auteur comme il condamnerait les "Illustres Bergers", Théophile, Tristan, ou encore La Fontaine, Marivaux, Choderlos de Laclos... Que cet improbable lecteur, que l'imagination ne concevrait pas, si de nombreux critiques n'avaient reproché aux Amours d'Ovide leur légèreté, sans voir leur grâce, leur futilité sans percevoir leur sérieux, que ce lecteur donc évite aussi de regarder les tableaux de Fragonard et qu'il se méfie de Mozart. Si, malgré cet avertissement, il ouvre le livre, qu'il se réjouisse, comme il y est invité par l'épigramme liminaire, que l'édition nouvelle de l'œuvre soit plus brève que la première.Aux autres lecteurs, qui aiment Mozart et Fragonard, les Amours. apportent le plaisir, la voluptas, que le poète a éprouvé lui-même, en se jouant de tous les lieux communs et de tous les interdits pour révéler les mille et une surprises du désir amoureux et pour harceler sous les flèches de Cupidon la société compassée ethypocrite qui l'entoure. -- 4ème de couverture

Les remèdes à l'amour ; Les produits de beauté pour le visage de la femme by Ovid( Book )

53 editions published between 1930 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'Art d'Aimer avait fait l'objet de vives critiques auxquelles Ovide répondit par deux poèmes, Les Remèdes à l’amour et Les Produits de beauté pour le visage de la femme. On reprochait au poète de mettre tout son talent au service de l’amour, il compose Les Remèdes à l’amour, suite de conseils aux jeunes gens dont les sentiments ne sont pas payés en retour : comment arracher le mal à sa racine ? Quels aliments apaisent les blessures de Cupidon ? Comment rompre définitivement ? Autant de questions traitées par le manuel. Pour se concilier à nouveau le public féminin, Ovide écrivit Les Produits de beauté pour le visage de la femme, avant de décider de rajouter à L’Art d’Aimer, un livre entièrement consacré aux femmes. De ce traité, seuls les 100 premiers vers nous sont parvenus. - Site de l'éditeur www.lesbelleslettres.com

Speeches by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

35 editions published between 1925 and 2006 in French and Latin and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CICEREO (Marcus Tullius, 3rd Jan. 106-7th Dec. 43 B.C.), Roman lawyer, orator and politician (and even philosopher), of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 Speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 survive (a few of them incompletely). In A.D. 1345 Petrarch discovered copies of a collection of more than 900 Letters of which more than 800 were written by Cicero and nearly 100 by others to him. These afford a revelation of the man and all the more striking because they were not written for publication. Six Rhetorical works survive and another in fragments. Philosophical works include seven extant major compositions and a number of others; and some lost. There is also poetry, some original, some as translations from the Greek

Pro Rabirio Postumo by Marcus Tullius Cicero( Book )

23 editions published between 1926 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cicero's speech delivered in the mid '50s BC in defence of Gaius Rabirius Postumus was the last of a series of trials which followed the restoration of the Egyptian king, Ptolemy XII Auletes, to his throne. This had been secured through the services of a Roman army which had acted on the promise of a huge illegal bribe. Rabirius Postumus, a leading financier, had travelled to Egypt to collect the promised money acting on behalf of himself and other creditors of the king, including Caesar and Pompey. On his return political opponents placed him, among others, on trial. This book provides a translation of the speech and a commentary in English of a work which is a major source for Roman and Egyptian history at a time of the late Republic. The introduction furnishes a review of the events surrounding the trial as well as a significant reappraisal of the career of Rabirius Postumus who is shown to be a major actor on the Roman political stage. The commentary discusses historical and legal points and also includes a number of important textual emendations. This book is intended for academics and post-graduate students interested in the study of Cicero and in Late Republican Roman literature, especially Roman historians, those interested in Ptolemaic Egypt, and Roman law."--Jacket
