Caesar's calendar : ancient time and the beginnings of history by D. C Feeney( Book )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ancient Romans changed more than the map of the world when they conquered so much of it; they altered the way historical time itself is marked and understood. In this brilliant and exhilarating book Denis Feeney investigates time and its contours as described by the ancient Romans, first as Rome positioned itself in relation to Greece and then as it exerted its influence as a major world power. Feeney welcomes the reader into a world where time was moveable and changeable and where simply ascertaining a date required a complex and often contentious cultural narrative. He investigates the pertinent systems, including the Roman calendar, which is still our calendar, and its near perfect method of capturing the progress of natural time; the annual rhythm of consular government; the plotting of sacred time onto sacred space; the forging of chronological links to the past; and, above all, the experience of empire, by which the Romans meshed the city-state's concept of time with those of the foreigners they encoun-tered and thereby established a worldwide web of time

Beyond Greek : the beginnings of Latin literature by D. C Feeney( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We take the existence of a literature in the Latin language for granted, but the emergence of this literature is a very strange moment in history. Latin literature should probably not have come into being in the form it took. This book explores the opening phase of Latin literature, from 240 to 140 BCE. The period begins with the first stage productions of Greek plays translated into Latin, which were also the first translations of Greek literary texts into any other language; it closes with the Romans in possession of a large-scale literature in Latin based on the literature of the Greeks, together with a developed historical tradition about their past and a mythology that connected them to the inheritance of the Greeks. The book uses a range of comparative evidence from both the ancient and the modern worlds in order to provide a context for understanding what the Romans did. The book recovers a great range of possibilities for cultural interaction in the ancient Mediterranean, with languages and texts sometimes interchanging quite freely and sometimes being blocked. The book argues that the Roman translation project and the resulting literature were highly anomalous in an ancient context: translation of literature was extremely rare in the world known to the Romans, and the ancient Mediterranean hosted many very successful cultures that had no kind of equivalent to the widely diffused text-based literary systems of the Greeks. The transformation of the Romans' Italian alliance into a Mediterranean imperial power provides the context for the revolution in their cultural life that led to what we call "Latin literature."" --

Supplication and The Classical Tradition : Vergil, Petrarch, Shakespeare, Milton by Leah Whittington( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dynamic structure of supplication speaks to issues at the heart of the literary and cultural movement of the Renaissance. For Renaissance practitioners of imitation, the give and take of suppliant scenes eloquently described their complex relationship to a literary tradition they simultaneously revered and sought to overgo. The question of how to respond to an act of supplication also appealed to the Renaissance preoccupation with the ethics of self-control and the ambivalent role of the passions in virtuous action. At the same time, the suppliant's plea posed a challenge to humanism's claim that rhetoric could teach ethical behavior. In seventeenth-century England, where the supplicatory gesture of kneeling at communion played a critical role in maintaining religious and political hierarchies, the refusal to supplicate could even be construed as treason

Telling Troy : the narrative functions of Troy in Roman poetry by Brigitte Anne Benacerraf Libby( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Roman poetry, telling a Trojan story was a way of talking about Rome. This dissertation combines philological and cultural-historical approaches to write the history of Troy in Roman poetry, tracing its evolution through changing cultural contexts. As the pivot between East and West and between history and myth, Troy's fall breached temporal, cultural, and geographical boundaries. Troy's interpretive flexibility made it an ideal tool for introducing and exploring complexities in the cultural narratives of Rome, which traced its origin to Troy. The sack of Troy could be seen either as the first step in the teleological advance of Roman Empire or as the first phase in a cycle of destruction that claimed Rome's mother-city and threatened Rome as well
