The Satyricon of Petronius by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

2 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic of comedy, a superbly funny picture of Nero's Rome as seen through the eyes of Petronius, its most amorous and elegant courtier. This translation recaptures all the ribald humor of Petronius' picaresque satire. The hilarious story of the pleasure-seeking, fortune-hunting adventures of an educated rogue, it turns every weakness of the flesh, every foible of the mind to laughter." [Back cover]

The private journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla : during the recent voyage of discovery under Captain Parry, 1821-1823 by G. F Lyon( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a vivid account of Arctic exploration in its most classical period. The journal clearly demonstrates the observant, warm-hearted personality of its chronicler, an officer of the Royal Navy, a man of sensibility and courage. Its accurate descriptions and thoughtful understanding of the Eskimo people make it almost unique as an early nineteenth-century document. George Francis Lyon appeared in the Arctic in the 1820's at the very height of the feverish quest for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. For over two centuries before Lyon's first journey in the Arctic on board the Hecla, more than two score of European ships with their daring crews had set out to discover a northern trade route to China. All had been lost or driven back by the power of the moving ice. The expedition of the Fury and Hecla from 1821-1823 was yet another venture that failed to navigate the narrow ice-choked passage to the western sea, but the observations of both Perry and Lyon, the leaders of the expedition, made considerable additions to the geographical and scientific knowledge of the eastern and central Arctic. -- from Introduction
The poems of William Cullen Bryant by William Cullen Bryant( Book )

2 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lysis or, Friendship. The symposium. Phaedrus by Plato( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 146 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is logical to group together the three dialogues of the present volume -- the Lysis, the Symposium, and the Phaedrus. In the first place, these three works contain in essence virtually all that Plato had to say on the subject of love and friendship. Secondly, the Lysis and certain parts of the other two works will show the Platonic dialectic in action. Further, the Symposium and Phaedrus are so replete with meaning that repeated readings are necessary in order to approach anything like a full grasp of their contents. In particular, they indicate what Plato conceived the nature of the human soul to be. We find him arguing that it is an entity which is immortal and at the same time has deep involvements in the world of space and time. - Preface

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ars amatoria, book I by Ovid( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his efforts to make the Ars a seventeenth-century poem, Heywood contemporizes Ovid's references to dress, behavior, courtship, marriage, games, theater, agriculture, horsemanship, wars, literature - all of which the commentaries explain at great length." "Loues Schoole will find readership in these areas: early modern history, literature, and culture; classical studies; Renaissance drama; the history of sexuality; and translation theory."--Jacket
