Dionysiaca by Nonnus( Book )

43 editions published between 1940 and 1984 in 4 languages and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nonnos of Panopolis, in Egypt, who lived in the fifth century of our era, composed the last great epic poem of antiquity. The Dionysiaca, in 48 books, has for its chief theme the expedition of Dionysus against the Indians; but the poet contrives to include all the adventures of the god (as well as much other mythological lore) in a narrative which begins with chaos in heaven and ends with the apotheosis of Ariadne's crown. The wild ecstasy inspired by the god is certainly reflected in the poet's style, which is baroque, extravagant, and unrestrained. It seems that Nonnos was in later years converted to Christianity, for in marked contrast to the Dionysiaca, a poem dealing unreservedly with classical myths and redolent of a pagan outlook, there is extant and ascribed to him a hexameter paraphrase of the Gospel of John. -- jacket
Ancient Roman religion by H. J Rose( Book )

15 editions published between 1948 and 1949 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outlines of classical literature by H. J Rose( Book )

20 editions published between 1958 and 1968 in English and held by 574 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is not a manual of classical literature, but a guide for students of English literature who too often come to their difficult and complex subject with little or no knowledge of one of its principal sources. It therefore does not attempt to give a complete account of the Greek and Roman writers, but tries instead to deal with those whose influences, direct or indirect, can be clearly traced in medieval and later authors. The ancients are taken in their chronological order, though this is not necessarily the order in which they became known to, or influenced the Christian world. The book should be of unusual interest to the undergraduate, the general reader and to the literary critic desirous of displaying classical erudition

Griechische Mythologie, ein Handbuch by H. J Rose( Book )

46 editions published between 1955 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

H.J. Rose's Handbook of Greek Mythology was first published in 1928, with its sixth edition appearing in 1958. As the only accessible narrative account of Greek Mythology, it has long been regarded as the standard text. The stories it contains can be traced back to the second millennium BC, yet they retain their vitality today, and the gods and heroes - Zeus and Athena, Heracles and Oedipus, Orpheus and Eurydice - remain familiar names. This new edition is a completely rewritten and revised version of Rose's original text; adding a huge amount of new material, Robin Hard incorporates the results of the latest research into his authoritative accounts of all the gods and heroes. Beginning from the emergence of the world from Chaos and Night, Hard describes the legends of the Children of Kronos, and the mythological beings that populated Greek consciousness - Harpies, Gorgons, Geryon and Echidna. From the war with the Titans, the narrative proceeds to the rule of the Olympian Gods, from their war with the Giants to their interventions in the legends of the heroes.; The legends, activities and associations of each god and goddess are recounted in turn; younger gods and foreign deities are also covered. The history of the age of the heroes, from Heracles, Theseus, Cadmus and Oedipus to the Trojan War and its aftermath, is told in a coherent chronology based on the systematizing work of Apollodorus in the second century AD. Special chapters are devoted to Jason and the Argonauts, the life of Heracles and the Trojan War. Throughout his comprehensive text, Robin Hard presents a clear, lucid account of the complex and sometimes contradictory mass of legends that functioned for the Greeks as the history of their origins, without losing the local colour and archetypal meaning they have for the modern reader. The narrative framework of the book remains that of Rose, with helpful signposting so that the book can be used as a reference work. The text also includes full documentation of the ancient sources, maps and genealogical tables. Illustrated throughout with numerous photographs and line drawings, it will be the definitive account of ancient Greek mythology fir generations to come
