Plautine elements in Plautus : (Plautinisches im Plautus) by Eduard Fraenkel( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucan by Charles Tesoriero( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book makes available in convenient form a selection of seminal articles on the Roman poet Lucan's grim epic, written in the time of Nero, on the world-changing civil war between Caesar and Pompey in the mid first century BC. The selection enables the reader of Lucan's work to trace the emergence of vital critical perspectives and controversies and the diverse approaches that have been applied to them. Five essays appear in English for the first time, and quotations from Latin and Greek have been translated. A specially written Introduction, by Susanna Braund, provides an up-to-date guide to scholarship on Lucan and to the history of the reception of the poem." --Book Jacket
Rome in triumph by Biondo Flavio( Book )

in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The threat of the Turks to the West dominated the period of the conception and writing of Rome in Triumph. The Fall of Constantinople (1453) has been emphasized as an important factor in Biondo's advocacy of Roman civilization in this work. Its framing certainly sets it in the context of resistance to Turkish encroachments, now threateningly close to Italy. In his dedication to Pius II Biondo speaks of an alliance of Italy, France, Spain and Germany for "the liberation of Europe" and of the role his work might play in stimulating such an enterprise. In the light of the lack of real success achieved by the Congress of Mantua, he concludes the whole work with a disillusioned warning that if Western Christians do not fight they will eventually suffer the fate of the Greeks. Two of the longer digressions concerned with contemporary events are more or less connected with the Turkish threat: the description of the victory celebration (March 1457) for the battle at Belgrade on 21-22 July, 1456 in Book 2, 51 and, in Book 5 (p.117d-118b), the commendation of Isabel of Burgundy's support (in 1454?) of a crusade against the Turks."--Provided by publisher

The satires of Horace by Horace( Book )

8 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Latin and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Roman philosopher and dramatic critic Quintus Horatius Flaccus (65-3 B.C.), known in English as Horace, was also the most famous lyric poet of his age. Written in the troubled decade ending with the establishment of Augustus's regime, his Satires provide trenchant social commentary on men's perennial enslavement to money, power, fame, and sex. Not as frequently translated as his Odes, in recent decades the Satires have been rendered into prose or bland verse. Horace continues to influence modern lyric poetry, and our greatest poets continue to translate and marvel at his command of formal style, his economy of expression, his variety, and his mature humanism. Horace's comic genius has also had a profound influence on the Western literary tradition through such authors as Swift, Pope, and Boileau, but interest in the Satires has dwindled due to the difficulty of capturing Horace's wit and formality with the techniques of contemporary free verse. -- Publisher description
The textual condition : rhetoric and editing( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rome in triumph by Biondo Flavio( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in Latin and English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Biondo Flavio (1392-1463), humanist and historian, was a pioneering figure in the Renaissance discovery of antiquity; famously, he was the author who popularized the term 'Middle Age' to describe the period between the fall of the Roman Empire and the revival of antiquity in his own time. While serving a number of Renaissance popes, he inaugurated an extraordinary program of research into the history, cultural life, and physical remains of the ancient world. The capstone of this research program, Rome in Triumph (1459), has been said to bear comparison with the Encyclopédie of Diderot as the embodiment of the ideals of an age, seeking as it does to answer the overarching question of humanists from Petrarch to Machiavelli: what made Rome great? To answer the question Biondo undertakes a comprehensive reconstruction of Rome's religion, government, military organization, customs and institutions over its thousand-year history. This volume contains the first edition of the Latin text since 1559 and the first translation into any modern language."
