Greek comedy by Gilbert Norwood( Book )

47 editions published between 1931 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,015 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the literary history of Greek comedy, the productions of the plays, their metre and rhythm, and the works of Aristophanes, Menander, Epicharnus, Cratinus, the School of Crates, and Eupolis. "All the greatest poets of Greece committed the same unintended offence: their overwhelming excellence thrust into partial or complete oblivion the merits of their less august fellow-writers. Aristophanes was so unquestionably the finest comic playwright of the fifth century that not a single work even of Cratinus has survived. This eclipsing power is still felt in our histories of literature, few readers of which are likely to divine that several of the now fragmentary plays were superior to some written by the master himself and still entirely extant. In this book I have naturally discussed Aristophanes and Menander at length and with deep pleasure; but my chief reason for undertaking it was an ambition to offer an adequate and illuminating account of numerous minor yet most engaging playwrights."

Tacitus : Agricola by Cornelius Tacitus( Book )

in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first work of any great historian has always commanded attention, and Tacitus was ancient Rome's very greatest historian. His biography of his father-in-law, governor of Britain in the years AD 77-84, is a literary masterpiece: it combines penetrating political history with gripping military narrative and throughout poses the question (still very much alive today) of how one should live one's life under a tyranny. This is the first commentary in English on the Agricola for almost half a century: in keeping with the aims of the series, particular attention is paid to the understanding of Tacitus' Latin, but a whole range of generic, historical, textual and narrative topics is covered, and it will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and graduate students as well as scholars. 'Tacitus Agricola' remains a key text for anyone with an interest in Roman Britain as well as ancient biography
