Traditions and contexts in the poetry of Horace by A. J Woodman( )
14 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book explores the whole range of the output of an exceptionally versatile and innovative poet, from the Epodes to the literary-critical Epistles. Distinguished scholars of diverse background and interests introduce readers to a variety of critical approaches to Horace and to Latin poetry. Close attention is paid throughout to the actual text of Horace, with many of the chapters focusing on reading a single poem. These close readings are then situated in a number of different political, philosophical and historical contexts. The book sheds light not only on Horace but on the general problems confronting Latinists in the study of Augustan poetry, and it will be of value to a wide range of upper-level Latin students and scholars

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

Female religious officials in Republican Rome by Meghan Jean DiLuzio( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The dissertation is organized according to type of religious office. The first four chapters focus on the Vestal order, the only Roman collegium composed entirely of female members. The fifth and sixth chapters consider joint offices filled by married couples. The most familiar officials of this type are undoubtedly the rex and regina sacrorum and the flamen and flaminica Dialis, though I argue that the remaining flamines maiores and minores also had wives who held the official religious title "flaminica." I also discuss evidence for married priests who served the Roman curiae and perhaps the communities of the Seven Hills as well. In the final chapter, I examine religious offices filled by individual women, including the sacerdotes of Ceres, Fortuna Muliebris, Bona Dea, Liber and Bacchus. The chapter concludes with a consideration of evidence for female support personnel and religious specialists who are typically excluded from studies of the Roman "priest," but were nonetheless integral to the practice of Roman religion. The material in this dissertation provides a more complete picture of official religious service at Rome, one that emphasizes its complex and gender inclusive nature
Metamorphoses : a new verse translation by Ovid( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Ovid's sensuous and witty poem brings together a dazzling array of mythological tales, ingeniously linked by the idea of transformation, often as a result of love or lust, where men and women find themselves magically changed into new and sometimes extraordinary beings. Beginning with the creation of the world and ending with the deification of Augustus, Ovid interweaves many of the best-known myths and legends of ancient Greece and Rome, including Daedalus and lcarus, Pyramus and Thisbe, Pygmalion, Perseus and Andromeda, and the fall of Troy. Erudite but light-hearted, dramatic and yet playful, the Metamorphoses has influenced writers and artists throughout the centuries from Shakespeare and Titian to Picasso and Ted Hughes. This lively, accessible new translation by David Raeburn is in hexameter verse, which brilliantly captures the energy and spontaneity of the original. The edition contains an introduction discussing the life and work of Ovid as well as a preface to each book, explanatory notes and an index of people, gods and places"--Back cover

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
A reference to Troy inevitably calls up an alternate map of the world and image of Rome--a parallel set of Trojan and Homeric narratives existing alongside any Roman story. The resulting gap between the Trojan past and Roman present could be stressed, minimized, or elided by poets as they wished, just as they would manage the effect of alluding to another text, which might either support or contradict their own claims. Accordingly, the project links the study of allusion and literary memory with the cultural historian's interest in the manipulation of cultural memory
