Most widely held works by John F Miller
Latin historiography and poetry in the early empire : generic interactions by John F Miller( )

14 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a sequel to Clio and the Poets (Brill 2002), takes as its point of departure Quintilian's statement that 'historiography is very close to the poets': it examines not only how verse interfaces with historical texts but also how first-century AD Roman historians engage with issues and patterns of thought central to contemporary poetry and with specific poetic texts. Included are substantive discussions of a wide range of authors, notably Lucan, Seneca, Statius, Pliny, Juvenal, Silius Italicus, and Tacitus

The wide range of friends who have contributed to this book attests no less to the kindly temperament of Ted Courtney than to the appreciation of his numerous contributions to scholarship. Most of the contributions are devoted to details of Latin studies (especially Latin verse), but there are four papers on Greek topics. The contributors have achieved a high standard, and the book should be acquired by serious classical libraries. The readership must consist of scholars and advanced students

Apollo, Augustus, and the poets by John F Miller( Book )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apollo's importance in the religion of the Roman state was markedly heightened by the emperor Augustus, who claimed a special affiliation with the god. Contemporary poets variously responded to this appropriation of Phoebus Apollo, both participating in the construction of an imperial symbolism and resisting that ideological project. This book offers a synoptic study of 'Augustan' Apollo in Augustan poetry. Topics explored include the divine self-imaging of late Republican rivals for power, poetic imaginings of Apollo's intervention at the pivotal battle of Actium, how poets 'read' Augustus' new Palatine Temple of Apollo and the deity's role in the reconstituted Saecular Games, and Apollo's key position in the emerging dialectic between poetics - as traditional divine patron of music and literature - and politics - as patron of Augustus. Discussions encompass the major Latin poets (Horace, Virgil, Tibullus, Propertius, Ovid) as well as anonymous voices in poetic lampoons, encomia, and contemporary Greek verse

Tracking Hermes, pursuing Mercury by John F Miller( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Of all the divinities of classical antiquity, the Greek Hermes (Mercury in his Roman alter ego) is the most versatile, enigmatic, complex, and ambiguous. The runt of the Olympian litter, he is the god of lies and tricks, yet is also kindly towards mankind and a bringer of luck. His functions embrace both the marking of boundaries and their transgression, but also extend to commerce, lucre, and theft, as well as rhetoric and practical jokes. In another guise, he playsthe role of mediator between all realms of human and divine activity, embracing heaven, earth, and the netherworld. 0Pursuing this elusive divinity requires a truly multidisciplinary approach, reflecting his prismatic nature, and the twenty contributions to this volume draw on a wide range of fields to achieve this, from Greek and Roman literature (epic, lyric, and drama), epigraphy, cult, and religion, to vase painting and sculpture. In offering an overview of the myriad aspects of Hermes/Mercury-including his origins, patronage of the gymnasium, and relation to other trickster figures-the volume attempts to track the god's footprints across the many domains in which he partakes. Moreover, in keeping with his deep connection to exchange, commerce, and dialogue, it aims to exemplify and further encourage discourse between Latinists and Hellenists, as well as between scholars of literary and material cultures

Web Feet summary: When most people think of gemstones, they think of diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and the like, which are all strikingly beautiful and terribly expensive. However, the earth is home to dozens of lesser known gems that are, in their own way, quite beautiful and in most cases far less expensive. This list of gemstones, extensive but admittedly incomplete, covers diamonds and rubies but also includes scores of their lesser-known cousins.
