Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

165 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 8 A.D., Ovid's Metamorphoses remains one of the most accessible and attractive avenues to the riches of Greek mythology. Beginning with the creation of the universe and ending with the death and deification of Julius Caesar, Ovid's masterful epic poem features a rich assortment of tales, including those of Jason and the Argonauts, Orpheus and Eurydice, the Trojan War, Echo and Narcissus, the slaying of the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, Hercules, Aeneas and Dido, the wedding of Perseus and Andromeda, and many others. These stories all have one element in common: transformation. Mortals become gods, animals turn to stone, and humans change into flowers, trees, or stars. Mingling pathos, humor, beauty, and cruelty, Ovid reveals how the endless ebb and flow of the universe itself is mirrored in the often paradoxical and always arbitrary fate of the poem?s characters, both human and divine

Ovid. Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

27 editions published between 1916 and 1960 in 3 languages and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Composed in Latin in the early years of the first century by the Roman poet Ovid, the "Metamorphoses" presents a collection of amazing tales of transformation based on Greek mythology and legend. Michael Simpson's prose translation of Ovid's masterpiece in the rapid and direct American idiom catches the swiftness and clarity of the Latin original. His introduction sketches the poet's life, describes his extant works, discusses his unusual exile to the west coast of the Black Sea (where he died), and provides a useful context for reading the "Metamorphoses." Simpson has also prepared extensive endnotes that serve as mini-essays, illuminating the manifold aspects of the poem and offering commentary and interpretation that enable readers to enter Ovid's magical world and enjoy its richness

Seneca by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( )

in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seneca, Lucius Annaeus, born at Corduba (Cordova) C.5 or 4 B.C. of a noble and wealthy family, spent an ailing childhood and youth at Rome in an aunt's care. He was victim of life-long neurosis but became famous in rhetoric, philosophy, money-making, and imperial service. After some disgrace during Claudius' reign he became tutor and then, in A.D. 54, advising minister to Nero, some of whose worst misdeed he did not prevent. Involved (innocently?) in a conspiracy, he killed himself by order in A.D. 65. Wealthy, he preached indifference to wealth; evader of pain and death, he preached scorn of both; and there were other contrasts between practice and principle

"Octavie est une oeuvre d'exception : c'est le seul exemple intégralement conservé d'un genre exclusivement romain, la tragédie " prétexte " dont le sujet est emprunté à l'histoire nationale et non à la légende. Même si les manuscrits qui nous transmettent la pièce l'attribuent au philosophe Sénèque, l'identité de son auteur nous est inconnue - il s'agirait d'un contemporain de Néron, proche de la cour impériale. En même temps qu'une oeuvre littéraire forte, une tragédie destinée à la récitation publique et à la lecture, l'Octavie est un exceptionnel document historique sur la période néronienne : ce drame nous donne à Ile siècle une remarquable analyse de la tyrannie

Imperial Romans : EI09( )

in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of fifteen documents centers primarily on the city of Rome, and secondarily on the Roman Empire at the height of the imperial period. All documents are in English (and some are also in Latin). Most focus on the first century AD, particularly from the death of Augustus in 14 AD to the accession of Trajan in 98 AD, with less emphasis on the principate of Augustus itself and on the period of 99-192 AD. The most comprehensive studies for an overall understanding of Imperial Roman history and ethnography are: Carcopino, Rostovtsev, Lewis and Reinhold, and Pellisson. Both Carcopino and Pellisson are chiefly concerned with the daily life of the citizens of Rome, while Rostovtsev deals with the social and economic history of the empire, and Lewis and Reinhold with imperial policies and administration, economic life, society and culture, life in the municipalities and provinces, the Roman army, law, and religion (particularly with the rise and eventual triumph of Christianity). The works by Columella present one of the most comprehensive and systematic of all treatises by a Roman writer on agricultural affairs and animal husbandry. Loane presents a detailed study of the provisioning of the city of Rome (50 BC-200 AD), including data on various aspects of trade, manufacturing, and other associated commercial activities. Rivenburg gives an account of what Seneca thought about the fashionable life and manners of this day (i. e., 35-65 AD). Tanzier, an archaeologist, attempts to study the life of the common people of Pompeii as revealed through their graffiti, friezes, and wall paintings which were preserved in the ashes resulting from the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. The documents by Pliny the Elder are all from his Natural History, and deal with ethnometeorology and ethnogeography, ethnosociology, ethnopsychology and ethoanatomy, the medicinal use of plants, and a study of metals, minerals and a history of art
