A companion to the study of Virgil by Nicholas Horsfall( Book )

32 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Companion to the Study of Virgil is not yet another introduction to Virgil's poetry, nor is it the thinking man's version of the bibliographies in ANRW. The editor and three outside contributors offer a guide both to the key problems and to the most intelligent discussions. They do not offer 'solutions' to all the difficulties, but are not frightened to admit that this we do not know, that that is a mess, and that there more work is to be done. The book is aimed at graduate students and university teachers. Many of the issues are difficult and artificial simplifications seem to offer no advantages. Apart from ample discussions of the poems and the main issues they raise, the book offers chapters on the life of Virgil (N.M. Horsfall), his style (N.M. Horsfall), his influence on late Latin epic (W.R. Barnes), on Latin life and culture (N.M. Horsfall), and his MS tradition (M. Geymonat)

Virgil, Aeneid 7 : a commentary by Virgil( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Multiple languages and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary will serve as a guide to recent (and future) work on Virgilian language, grammar, syntax and style. Recent approaches to the text have been, where possible, taken into account, with sympathy but without jargon. Virgil's sources, in verse and prose, have been studied with special care and the commentary presents a coherent approach to Virgil's view of Italian religion, antiquities and topography. Unusually full indexing is intended to further the book's use as a guide to many aspects of Augustan poetic idiom. There is a text independent of recent editions and a precise, prose translation."--Jacket
Roman myth and mythography by Jan N Bremmer( Book )

12 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil, Aeneid 11 : a commentary by Virgil( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first comprehensive commentary on Aeneid 11. The commentary treats fully matters of linguistic and textual intepretation, metre and prosody, grammar, lexicon and idiom, of Roman behaviour, social and ritual, as well as Virgil's sources and the literary tradition. New critical approaches and developments on Virgilian studies have been taken into account with economy and fairness. The Latin text is presented with a facing English translation. The commentary is followed by an appendix on Penthesilea and the Epic Cycle and a second appendix which discusses the weaknesses of Aeneid 11. The book concludes with English and Latin indices." "In approach and learning, this commentary continues Nicholas Horsfall's impressive work as a commentator and will advance our understanding of the Aeneid and the poet Virgil."--BOOK JACKET
Virgil, Aeneid 3 : a commentary by Nicholas Horsfall( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first detailed commentary on Aeneid 3, being some three times the size of that by R.D. Williams (1962), and aimed at the scholarly public. It treats fully the thorny problem of book 3's place in the growth of the poem, matters of linguistic and textual interpretation, metre, prosody, grammar, lexicon and idiom, as well as Virgil's sources and the literary tradition in which he writes. Full attention is given to matters geographical and nautical. New critical approaches and recent developments in Virgilian studies have been taken into account, with more attention to their spirit than to their language. A text, with translation, and three indices are included."--Jacket

14 editions published in 1988 in 3 languages and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil, Aeneid 2 : a commentary by Nicholas Horsfall( Book )

14 editions published in 2008 in English and Latin and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is Nicholas Horsfall's fourth commentary on a book of the 'Aeneid' and in scale and approach follows closely the earlier volumes. It is aimed at the scholarly public and is not intended as a replacement for Austin's admirable school and undergraduate commentary of 1964. But so splendid an ancient text requires fresh scholarly instruments and this commentary discusses fully the acutely controversial Helen-episode (spurious), matters of linguistic and textual interpretation, metre, prosody, grammar, lexicon and idiom, as well as Virgil's sources and the literary tradition in which he writes. Full attention is given to matters military and historiographical. New critical approaches and recent developments have been taken into account, with more attention to their spirit than to their language. A text, with translation, and three indices are included."--Jacket
