Epigrams by Martial( Book )

176 editions published between 1902 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 864 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
The Latin language; an historical account of Latin sounds, stems and flexions by W. M Lindsay( Book )

60 editions published between 1894 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 774 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

W.M. Lindsay, an outstanding figure of his time and one of the greatest of British Latinists, recognised a need for a 'new treatment' of Latin philology in this enduring work of 1894. Demonstrating his considerable familiarity with the voluminous texts of earlier Latin grammarians, Lindsay draws upon previous significant studies to illustrate how our knowledge of the Latin language has advanced over time. The book addresses all the key aspects of the Latin language in turn, including its alphabet, pronunciation, accentuation, the formation of noun and adjective stems, declensions, conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions. It is clearly organised to enable the reader easily to locate the topic required. Held in extremely high regard by classical scholars today, Lindsay's work condenses a vast store of learning on this large and complex topic into a single volume, and represents a major contribution to the analysis of Latin grammar

T. Macci Plauti Captivi by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

95 editions published between 1887 and 1981 in 4 languages and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captivi is a Latin play by the early Roman playwright Titus Maccius Plautus. The title has been translated as The Captives or The Prisoners, and the plot concerns slavery and prisoners of war. Although the play contains much broad humor, it is a relatively serious treatment of significant themes compared to most of Plautus' other comedies. Plautus himself points out the difference in tone between this play and his other works in Captivi's prologue. Philocrates and his slave Tyndarus, of the Greek district of Elis, have been captured in war with another Greek region, Aetolia. They are now prisoners and slaves bought by Hegio, a well-to-do resident of Aetolia, who is planning to trade them for his son, Philopolemus, who has been captured in Elis. Pretending to be each other, the supposed slave Philocrates is sent to make the trade, while Tyndarus risks his life by remaining. A friend of Philocrates named Aristophontes has also been captured, and Tyndarus' efforts to fool Hegio by claiming that Aristophontes is insane are unsuccessful. When Hegio finds out from Aristophontes that he has been deceived, he sends Tyndarus to the quarries for backbreaking labor. Declaring that dying courageously is not an everlasting death, Tyndarus tries to convince Hegio that his own loyalty to Philocrates is right. Comic relief is provided by a sponger, Ergasilus, looking for a free dinner from Hegio. He has learned that Hegio's son Philopolemus has returned to Aetolia, and he uses this knowledge to get a free meal from Hegio, then proceeds to go wild in the kitchen. Hegio's former slave Stalagmus, who stole Hegio's other son when he was four years old, also arrives on the scene and confesses his iniquity. Eventually everybody discovers that Tyndarus is that stolen son, causing Hegio to realize he should have treated him better when he was his captive slave. Hegio and his two sons, Philopolemus and Tyndarus, are reunited in a happy ending

T. Macci Plauti Comoediae by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

55 editions published between 1903 and 1990 in Latin and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The foundation for the modern study of Titus Maccius Plautus rests on this monumental four-volume edition, begun by the eminent German philologist Friedrich Ritschl and completed by his colleagues Gustav Loewe, Georg Goetz, and Fritz Schöll. Scrupulously edited from existing manuscripts, including the famed Ambrosian palimpsest, this edition offers valuable insights into the metrics, literary and historical contexts, and textual history of the Latin comedic playwright. Each play is provided with a thorough preface, analysing the work's structures and themes and explaining its reconstruction from manuscript. A central contribution to the study of Plautine drama, Ritschl's Comoediae is also a remarkable achievement of textual criticism, a model of nineteenth-century philology at its most ambitious"_Contracub
