Laudi : trattato e detti by Jacopone( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in Italian and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""C'est peut-être la plus puissante personnalité de notre littérature avant "l'Alighieri ", ainsi disait, Natalino Sapegno, de Jacopone da Todi (env. 1230-1306) entré chez les Frères mineurs en 1278 après une vie qu'on dit dissolue. Les Laudi sont un type de poésie populaire destinée à être chantée et même dansée. Jacopone y répand sa fantaisie : c'est le grand poète, l'unique parmi les laudesi, inimitable en son langage composite très personnel. Il est bien un homme du Moyen âge, fanatique dans son mépris voulu du monde et du corps, ses gestes d'humilité et de pénitence excessifs et étranges : sa " sainte folie ". Mais aussi en des moments paisibles réapparaît le monde en sa beauté, la douceur de la contemplation de la Vierge Marie, joyeuse et frémissante en face du nouveau-né, ou douloureuse mère au pied de la croix. Dans ses poésies proprement mystiques, tout en métaphores et en allégories, passe un élan irrépressible : " O jubilation d'amour qui fait chanter d'amour! "

Aeneas flees the ashes of Troy to found the city of Rome and change forever the course of the Western world - and literature as well. Virgil's "Aeneid" is as eternal as Rome itself, a sweeping epic of arms and heroism - and a portrait of a man caught between love and duty, human feeling and the force of fate - that has influenced writers for over 2,000 years

Epigrams by Martial( Book )

8 editions published between 1962 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was to celebrate the opening of the Roman Colosseum in A.D. 80 that Martial published his first book of poems, "On the Spectacles." Written with satiric wit and a talent for the memorable phrase, the poems in this collection record the broad spectacle of shows in the new arena. The great Latin epigrammist's twelve subsequent books capture the spirit of Roman life - both public and private - in vivid detail. Fortune hunters and busybodies, orators and lawyers, schoolmasters and street hawkers, jugglers and acrobats, doctors and plagiarists, beautiful slaves, and generous hosts are among the diverse characters who populate his verses. Martial is a keen and sharp-tongued observer of Roman Society. His pen brings into crisp relief a wide variety of scenes and events: the theater and public games, life in the countryside, a rich debauchee's banquet, lions in the amphitheater, the eruption of Vesuvius. The epigrams are sometimes obscene, in the tradition of the genre, sometimes warmly affectionate or amusing, and always pointed. Like his contemporary Statius, though, Martial shamelessly flatters his patron Domitian, one of Rome's worst-reputed emperors. D.R. Shackleton Bailey now gives us in three volumes, a reliable modern translation of Martial's often difficult Latin, eliminating many misunderstandings in previous versions. The text is mainly that of his highly praised Teubner edition of 1990
