Most widely held works by Susanna Morton Braund
Latin literature by Susanna Morton Braund( Book )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work provides an introduction to aspects of Latin prose and poetry. Readers are constantly encouraged to think for themselves about how and why we study the texts in question. Central throughout is the theme of the fundamental connections between Latin literature and issues of elite Roman culture
Juvenal and Persius by Juvenal( Book )

26 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bite and wit of two of antiquity's best satirists are captured here in a new Loeb Classical Library edition, a vivid and vigorous translation facing the Latin text. Persius (34-62 CE) and Juvenal (writing maybe 60 years later) were heirs to the style of Latin verse satire developed by Lucilius and Horace, a tradition mined in Susanna Braund's introduction and notes. Her notes also give guidance to the literary and historical allusions that pepper Persius's and Juvenal's satirical poems-which were clearly aimed at a sophisticated urban audience. Both poets adopt the mask of an angry man, and sharp criticism of the society in which they live is combined with flashes of sardonic humor in their satires. Whether targeting common and uncommon vices, the foolishness of prayers, the abuse of power by emperors and the Roman elite, the folly and depravity of Roman wives, or decadence, materialism, and corruption, their tone is generally one of righteous indignation. Juvenal and Persius are seminal as well as stellar figures in the history of satirical writing. Juvenal especially had a lasting influence on English writers of the Renaissance and succeeding centuries
Roman verse satire by Susanna Morton Braund( Book )

Pharsalia by Lucan( Book )

26 editions published between 1957 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucan, grandson of Seneca the Rhetorician, and nephew of Seneca the Philosopher, was a remarkable and precocious product of the stimulating literary climate promoted by Nero. His epic poem on the civil war between Caesar and Pompey, unfinished at the time of his death, stands beside the poems of Virgil and Ovid in the first rank of Latin epic. The work is a powerful condemnation of civil war, and Lucan emphasizes the stark, dark horror of the catastrophes which the Roman state inflicted upon itself. This new translation in free verse conveys the full force of Lucan's writing, and his grimly realistic view of the subject. The introduction sets the scene for the reader unfamiliar with Lucan, explores his relationship with earlier writers of Latin epic, and his interest in the sensational."--Back cover
The passions in Roman thought and literature( Book )

20 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays by an international team of scholars in Latin literature and ancient philosophy explore the understanding of emotions (or 'passions') in Roman thought and literature. Building on work on Hellenistic theories of emotion and on philosophy as therapy, they look closely at the interface between ancient philosophy (especially Stoic and Epicurean), rhetorical theory, conventional Roman thinking and literary portrayal. There are searching studies of the emotional thought-world of a range of writers including Catullus, Cicero, Virgil, Seneca, Statius, Tacitus and Juvenal. Issues of debate such as the ethical colour of Aeneas's angry killing of Turnus at the end of the Aeneid are placed in a broad and illuminating perspective. Written in clear and non-technical language, with Greek and Latin translated, the volume opens up a fascinating area on the borders of philosophy and literature
Ancient anger : perspectives from Homer to Galen( Book )

32 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume brings together a number of significant new studies, by authors from different disciplines and countries, on literary, philosophical, medical, and political aspects of ancient anger from Homer until the Roman imperial period. It studies some of the most important ancient sources and provides a paradigmatic selection of approaches to them, and should stimulate further research on this important subject in a number of fields."--Jacket

Seneca : Oedipus by Susanna Morton Braund( Book )

12 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Oedipus, king of Thebes, is one of the giant figures of ancient mythology. Through the centuries, his story has inspired works of epic poetry, lyric poetry, tragedy, opera, a gospel musical and more. The myth has been famously deployed in psychology by Sigmund Freud. It may not be too bold to claim that Oedipus is the name from Greco-Roman mythology best known beyond the academy at the present time, thanks to Freud's famous phrase 'the Oedipus complex'. The most famous version of the Oedipus myth from antiquity is the Greek play by Sophocles. But there is another version, the Latin drama by the Roman philosopher and politician Seneca. Seneca's version is an entirely different treatment from that of Sophocles and reflects concerns special to the author and his Roman audience in the first century AD. Moreover, the play actually exercised a much greater influence on European literature and thought than has usually been suspected. This book offers a compact and incisive study of the multi-faceted Oedipus myth, of Seneca as dramatist, of the distinctive characteristics of Seneca's play and of the most important aspects of the reception of the play in European drama and culture. The scope of the book ranges chronologically from Homer's treatment of Oedipus myth in the Odyssey down to a twenty-first century Senecan treatment by a Lebanese Canadian dramatist. No knowledge of Latin or other foreign languages is required"--
