Writing exile : the discourse of displacement in Greco-Roman antiquity and beyond by Jan Felix Gaertner( )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Exile and displacement are central topics in classical literature. Previous research has been mostly biographical and has focused on the three most prominent exiles: Cicero, Ovid, and Seneca. By shifting focus to a discourse of exile and displacement in early Greek poetry, Greek historiography, Cynicism, consolatory literature, Latin epic, Greek literature of the empire, and Medieval Latin literature, the present volume questions the notion of a distinct, psychologically conditioned 'genre' or 'mode' of exile literature. It shows how ancient and medieval authors perceive and present their exile according to pre-existent literary paradigms, style themselves or others as 'typical' exiles, and employ 'exile' as a powerful trope to express estrangement, elicit readerly sympathy, and question political power structures

Epistulae ex Ponto, Book I by Publi Ovidi Nasó( Book )

17 editions published in 2005 in 4 languages and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In AD 8 Ovid - at that time indisputably the premier poet of Rome - was suddenly banished to Tomis on the Black Sea. Ovid's reaction to his situation in exile is expressed in the epistolary elegies of the Tristia and the Epistulae ex Ponto. The present edition of the first book of the Epistulae ex Ponto gives a revised text with a new translation, an extended introduction, and the first full-scale commentary of this work in English. The introduction explores the arrangement of the poems, the historical context in Rome and in Tomis, and Ovid's verbal and metrical style. The commentary offers a fresh examination of the text of the Epistulae ex Ponto. Readings different from those adopted in the current standard edition by Richmond are favoured on various occasions, and new conjectures as well as deletions are proposed. The commentary demonstrates that the Epistulae ex Ponto exploit more colloquialisms of diction and style than Ovid's earlier poetry without, however, sacrificing artistic quality. At the same time there are considerable stylistic differences between and even within the epistles. Ovid adjusts the diction to suit the addressees and the respective subject matter. In general the epistles display a rich literary texture and a considerable amount of playfulness. The poet not only draws from love elegy and other works of Latin poetry, but also exploits rhetorical theory and consolatory literature as well as various Greek poetic genres."--Jacket
Caesar and the Bellum Alexandrinum : an analysis of style, narrative technique, and the reception of Greek historiography by Jan Felix Gaertner( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book demonstrates that the Bellum Alexandrinum is heterogeneous with regard to its style, narrative technique, and the density and quality of the historical information. It suggests that the work is a conglutination of accounts by a number of different authors. The first section is likely to go back to Julius Caesar himself. The analysis sheds light on the composition of the Corpus Caesarianum, the war of words preceding and following Caesar's assassination, and the development of Roman historiography in the first century B.C
<> by Stephanos( )

3 editions published in 2016 in Greek, Ancient and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This comprehensive geographical encyclopaedia, compiled around 530 A.D., catalogues some 3,600 names of places, mountains, lakes, rivers, waters and peoples from the ancient world. Particular attention is paid to the etymology of names and the grammatical derivations of the Ethnika . For cultural historical information - here with the evidence of the attributed "ations - Stephanos is often the sole source. This new critical edition replaces A. Meineke's long obsolete edition of 1849. The text of the directly recorded epitomes is accompanied by an apparatus of parallel terms which takes account of both the sources of the encyclopaedia and its later users. This first translation of the encyclopaedia in a modern language and the notes (particularly on language, onomastics and topography) open up the work to a wide circle of scholars engaged in studies of antiquity
