Arguments in rhetoric against Quintilian : translation and text of Peter Ramus's Rhetoricae distinctiones in Quintilianum (1549) by Petrus Ramus( )

19 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 1,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1986, this book offers the Latin text and English translation of a pivotal work by one of the most influential and controversial writers of early modern times. Pierre de la Ramée, better known as Peter Ramus, was a college instructor in Paris who published a number of books attacking and attempting to refute foundational texts in philosophy and rhetoric. He began in the early 1540s with books on Aristotle-which were later banned and burned-and Cicero, and later, in 1549, he published Rhetoricae Distinctiones in Quintilianum. The purpose of Ramus's bo
Brill's companion to Statius by William J Dominik( )

14 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,087 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brill's Companion to Statius is the first companion volume to be published on arguably the most important Roman poet of the Flavian period. Thirty-four newly commissioned chapters from international experts provide a comprehensive overview of recent approaches to Statius, discuss the fundamental issues and themes of his poetry, and suggest new fruitful areas for research. All of his works are considered: the Thebaid , his longest extant epic; the Achilleid , his unfinished epic; and the Silvae , his collected short poetry. Particular themes explored include the social, cultural, and political issues surrounding his poetry; his controversial aesthetic; the influence of his predecessors upon his poetry; and the scholarly and literary reception of his poetry in subsequent ages to the present

Playing with time : Ovid and the Fasti by Carole Elizabeth Newlands( Book )

16 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newlands maintains that, despite the Fasti's basic adherence to the format of the calendar, the text is carefully constructed to reflect the tensions within its subject: the new Roman year. Ovid plays with the calendar. Through the alteration or omission of significant dates, through skilled juxtapositions, through multiple narrators and the development of an increasingly unreliable authorial persona, Ovid opens to a critical and often humorous scrutiny the political ideology of the calendar. By adding astronomical observations and aetiological explanations for certain constellations, Newlands says, Ovid introduced the richly allusive world of Greek mythology to the calendar. Newlands restores the poem to a position of importance, one displaying Ovid's wit and intellect at its best. The incompleteness of the Fasti, she adds, is a comment on the discord that characterized Augustus' later years and led to enforced silences
Ovid by Carole Elizabeth Newlands( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Virgil, Horace and Ovid are often cited as the three great canonical poets of classical Roman literature. And of the three, arguably it is Ovid (43 BCE-17/18 CE) who has the most enduring legacy. Carole Newlands introduces her subject as an ancient author with a vital place in the modern cultural canon, and also as the inspiration behind figures as Chaucer, Titian, Dryden and Ted Hughes. She views Ovid as a Latin writer who is uniquely suitable for times of change: he appeals to post-modern sensibilities because of his interest in psychology, his fascination with cultural hybridity and his challenge to the conventional divide between animal and human. This book explores the connection between the historical poet and the works he produced: elegies, the Metamorphoses and the Fasti. It shows that unlike Virgil - who wrote early in Augustus' reign, anticipating a Golden Age of peace and prosperity - Ovid was a product of the late Augustan age: one of hardening autocracy and the greater influence of Tiberius behind the scenes. His elegies and erotic myths must therefore be understood as the result of complex, shifting political circumstances."--Page 4 of cover
Silvae by Publius Papinius Statius( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Latin and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the exception of a poem on the unscripted death of a lion in the Colosseum, Book II of Statius' Silvae is largely domestic in theme. It reflects the more private side of Roman culture, its pleasures, houses, gardens, friendships, and personal losses; it concludes with a provocative tribute to the poet Lucan. Despite its variety, the book is carefully constructed as a unit, and this edition, which is suitable for use with advanced students, puts the book into its context in the history of Greek and Roman poetry. The commentary takes into account the important work done on the text of the Silvae in the past two decades as well as the new perspectives brought to bear on Flavian culture by historians and archaeologists. It explores Statius' use of the short poem as a playful engagement with literary tradition that also reflects changing ideas of Roman cultural identity
Statius, poet between Rome and Naples by Carole Elizabeth Newlands( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the poetry of Statius (c. 40-96 AD), in relation to significant social and cultural issues of his day, in particular shifting attitudes to Hellenism, gender and Roman imperialism. It also discusses the reception of Statius' poetry in the Middle Ages, when his reputation was at its zenith. Medieval interpretations of Statius' epics suggest that their popularity rested in part on the prominence they give to female action and the female voice, thus suggesting new expressive and generic possibilities."--Bloomsbury Publishing

The transformation of the "locus amoenus" in Roman poetry by Carole Elizabeth Newlands( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 2007 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation studies the development of the locus amoenus over six centuries of Latin literature, from the late first century B.C. to the sixth century A.D., and deals in detail with specific works of Vergil, Horace, Ovid, Calpurnius Siculus, Statius, Ausonius, and Venantius Fortunatus. References to Roman wall painting, which developed concurrently along similar lines, help illuminate the changes in the literary depiction of landscape
Medea : Essays on Medea in Myth, Literature, Philosophy, and Art( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the dawn of European literature, the figure of Medea--best known as the helpmate of Jason and murderer of her own children--has inspired artists in all fields throughout all centuries. Euripides, Seneca, Corneille, Delacroix, Anouilh, Pasolini, Maria Callas, Martha Graham, Samuel Barber, and Diana Rigg are among the many who have given Medea life on stage, film, and canvas, through music and dance, from ancient Greek drama to Broadway. In seeking to understand the powerful hold Medea has had on our imaginations for nearly three millennia, a group of renowned scholars here examines the major representations of Medea in myth, art, and ancient and contemporary literature, as well as the philosophical, psychological, and cultural questions these portrayals raise. The result is a comprehensive and nuanced look at one of the most captivating mythic figures of all time. Unlike most mythic figures, whose attributes remain constant throughout mythology, Medea is continually changing in the wide variety of stories that circulated during antiquity. She appears as enchantress, helper-maiden, infanticide, fratricide, kidnapper, founder of cities, and foreigner. Not only does Medea's checkered career illuminate the opposing concepts of self and other, it also suggests the disturbing possibility of otherness within self. In addition to the editors, the contributors include Fritz Graf, Nita Krevans, Jan Bremmer, Dolores M. O'Higgins, Deborah Boedeker, Carole E. Newlands, John M. Dillon, Martha C. Nussbaum, Christiane Sourvinou-Inwood, and Marianne McDonald

The metamorphosis of Ovid's Medea by Carole Elizabeth Newlands( Book )

Missing persons: Character, context, and Ovidian poetics by Reina Erin Callier( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though ostensibly a poem meant to explicate the Roman calendar and its attendant religious festivals under the Caesars, Ovid's Fasti elevates certain non-Augustan religious and historical figures to surprising heights. This dissertation investigates three such characters: Remus, Hersilia, and Carmentis. All three of these characters are somewhat minor figures in the art and literature of Ovid's time, and have little -- if any -- connection to the religious contexts into which Ovid inserts them. A comparison with the traditional accounts of these characters (both literary and material) shows that Ovid utilizes their relative absence elsewhere to construct a new narrative about them that represents and articulates his own elegiac poetic "programme" in the face of the famous artistic and political "programme" of Augustus. Ovid's concerns -- the feminine voice, the perspective of the historical "other," and elegiac poetry's alternative views on morality -- are personified through these characters, and their unprecedented promotion to divinity (or, in Remus' case, the unprecedented suggestion of his potential divinity) not only questions the Augustan rhetoric of political apotheosis but also suggests Ovid's elevation of his own poetry to immortality
