The epigrams of Philodemos by Philodème( )

8 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This edition is far more comprehensive than any other text and commentary on Philodemos' epigrams, and is the only one to assess his poetry in the light of his poetic theory. It will be of great use to students of Greek and Latin poetry, where echoes of Philodemos are found in works of Vergil, Catullus, Horace, Ovid, Marital, and Propertius

Philodemus, On anger by Philodemus( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This English translation of On Anger provides a newly read and supplemented Greek text of one of the most important "Herculaneum papyri," the only collection of literary texts to survive the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE. On Anger is our sole evidence for the Epicurean view of what constitutes natural and praiseworthy anger, as distinguished from unnatural pleasure in vengeance and cruelty for their own sake, a view that can be shown to have influenced Latin authors like Cicero, Horace and Virgil"--
On poems by Philodemus( Book )

in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The On Poems by Philodemus (c. 110-35 BC), the Epicurean philosopher and poet who taught Vergil and influenced Horace, is our main source for Hellenistic literary theory. In Book 1 Philodemus summarizes a survey of previously unknown poetic and aesthetic theories. Compiled by Crates of Mallos, this survey reviews the critical theories of earlier Epicureans, Peripatetics, and Stoics, who had argued that sound is the source of poetic excellence, and that the ear, unaided by the mind, can judge it. Philodemus led the reaction against this invasion of literary criticism by musical theory, arguing that form and content are interrelated, and that substantive content, not pretty sound, is what makes poetry worthwhile." "The 200 fragments of Book 1, carbonized in the eruption of Vesuvius, were entirely jumbled after their discovery at Herculaneum. This edition reconstitutes their original sequence according to a new method, while exploiting previously unknown manuscript sources and new techniques for reading the extant pieces. In thus restoring this important aesthetic treatise from antiquity, it makes a major addition to the corpus of classical literature" --Book Jacket

On piety. critical text with commentary by Philodemus( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new critical text of the philosophical part of Philodemus' On Piety (shown to be the first and not as previously thought the second), together with an English translation and full commentary, introduces a new method of reconstructing the papyrus rolls excavated from the Villa of the Papyri at Herculaneum." "This new edition reveals a text that expounds Epicurus' theory of the gods and religious cult practices as an outgrowth of cultural history, and provides details of Epicurean theology, cult practices and organization of Epicurean groups, accusations of impiety among philosophers, and the philosophical criticism of mythological poetry." "An innovative format presents on facing pages the technical details of the papyrus and a continuous text with running English translation, to which are attached brief explanatory notes. There is an Introduction on Epicurus and Greek religion, which explains the significance of the text for our understanding of Hellenistic philosophy and intellectual history, as well as dealing with the transmission of the text, the reconstruction of its argument, its genre, theme, and the style and syntax of Philodemus' Greek. The commentary brings new work on ancient religion and philosophy and the history of atheism to bear on the interpretation of the text."--BOOK JACKET
