La Eneida, el gran poema épico de Publio Virgilio Marón (Andes, Mantua, 70 a. C. - Bríndisi, 19 a. C.), es considerada como una de las obras emblemáticas de la civilización grecolatina. El poema, que Virgilio no terminó, exalta los orígenes del pueblo romano a través de Eneas, héroe troyano de estirpe divina, y narra sus viajes y las guerras que hubo de sostener para establecer su linaje en el Lacio. La influencia de Homero es evidente y las referencias a la Ilíada y la Odisea, constantes; pero su finalidad concreta era conseguir que los romanos estuvieran orgullosos de serlo, que se sintieran herederos de los dioses y de los héroes que habían forjando su historia nacional, y, sobre todo, exaltar la figura de Augusto como materialización y eclosión del glorioso destino de Roma. A Virgilio nunca le satisfizo plenamente su obra; trató de destruirla y en su testamento prohibió su publicación, pero el emperador Augusto lo impidió

Five Points (an intersection in lower Manhattan formed when Anthony Street was extended to meet Orange and Cross-today's Baxter and North Streets), was the most infamous neighborhood in nineteenth-century America. Visitors from Charles Dickens to Abraham Lincoln flocked to Five Points to witness the filthy streets, bordellos, gambling dens, and tenements that housed the lowest of the low. A close look at Five Points reveals a hidden world. As one of the most ethnically varied areas in the nation's most diverse city, The Five Points story is a classic American example of immigrant energy and ambition. From "Bowery Boy" culture to the invention of tap dance, to the most famous prize-fight of the century, to the timeless photographs of Jacob Riis, Five Points illuminates the colorful history of a fascinating community

35 editions published between 1762 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pastoral poetry was probably the creation of the Hellenistic poet Theocritus, and he was certainly its most distinguished exponent in Greek. Vergil not only transposed the spirit of Greek pastoral into an Italian setting, blending details from the life of his native countryside into the subsequent history of the genre. On publication the Eclogues won immediate acclaim and Vergil's reputation as a major poet was established. In this edition Robert Coleman describes the earlier pastoral tradition, sets Vergil's poems in historical perspective and evaluates the poet's distinctive contribution to the genre. In the commentary difficulties of interpretation are elucidated. Theocritean influences are examined in detail and points of interest in the language, style and subject-matter discussed. This is the fullest edition of the Eclogues to have appeared in any language and the first in English since the end of the nineteenth century. It is intended primarily for university students and sixth-formers but will be valuable to anyone interested in Latin poetry and the development of the pastoral genre. --
