The Cambridge companion to Virgil by Charles Martindale( Book )
40 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 1,037 libraries worldwide
Virgil became a school author in his own lifetime and the centre of the Western canon for the next 1800 years, exerting a major influence on European literature, art, and politics. This Companion is designed as an indispensable guide for anyone seeking a fuller understanding of an author critical to so many disciplines. It consists of essays by seventeen scholars from Britain, the USA, Ireland and Italy which offer a range of different perspectives both traditional and innovative on Virgil's works, and a renewed sense of why Virgil matters today. The Companion is divided into four main sections, focussing on reception, genre, context, and form. This ground-breaking book not only provides a wealth of material for an informed reading but also offers sophisticated insights which point to the shape of Virgilian scholarship and criticism to come

Shakespeare and the classics ( Book )
28 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 785 libraries worldwide
"Shakespeare and the Classics demonstrates that the classics are of central importance in Shakespeare's plays and in the structure of his imagination. Written by an international team of Shakespeareans and classicists, this book investigates Shakespeare's classicism and shows how he used a variety of classical books to explore such crucial areas of human experience as love, politics, ethics and history. The book focuses on Shakespeare's favourite classical authors, especially Ovid, Virgil, Seneca, Plautus and Terence, and, in translation only, Plutarch."--Jacket
Shakespeare and the uses of antiquity : an introductory essay by Charles Martindale( Book )
34 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 717 libraries worldwide
Annotation Shakespeare's knowledge of the Classics was based on a simple grammar school education, yet a third of his plays are set in the ancient world and he constantly used classical mythology, history and ideas. Shakespeare & The Uses Of Antiquity shows how he made the most of his reading of writers such as Ovid, Seneca, and (in translation) Homer and Plutarch, to give convincing life to his historical and fictional characters from antiquity
John Milton and the transformation of ancient epic by Charles Martindale( Book )
21 editions published between 1986 and 2002 in English and held by 627 libraries worldwide
Horace made new : Horatian influences on British writing from the Renaissance to the twentieth century ( Book )
14 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 414 libraries worldwide
This book, a celebration of the bimillennium of Horace's death and a successor to Ovid Renewed (Cambridge University Press 1988), explores, in as balanced and comprehensive a way as the editors could achieve, the presence of Horace in English letters and culture from the Renaissance onwards, in the form of a series of critical essays by different specialists, including two distinguished poets. The wide span of its coverage shows that there has been a continuous interest in Horace throughout the modern period, whereas it is often supposed that Horace's influence was only of central importance in the eighteenth century. Horace's 'autobiographical' mode was attractive to the humanists of the sixteenth century, and the lyric poetry inspired a richer response in the seventeenth than in the eighteenth. Horace indeed is a major (if often hidden) element in the English poetic tradition, both directly and as a result of the imitation and appropriation of his works by Wyatt, Jonson, Dryden, Pope and others. The book also casts fresh light on the character and interpretation of Horace, things intimately connected with the historical reception of his works, particularly by some of their most influential and sensitive readers, the great English poets. The book is aimed at a wide and general readership: those interested in the classical heritage, the cultural importance of Horace and issues of interpretation in comparative literature and cultural history
Redeeming the text : Latin poetry and the hermeneutics of reception by Charles Martindale( Book )
11 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 395 libraries worldwide
This book applies some of the procedures of modern critical theory to the interpretation of Latin poetry. The author argues for an approach that sees the meaning of a text as always and necessarily involved in the process of 'reception, ' that is the way it has been read and interpreted from the time of its composition down to the present day. A study of its reception-history facilitates novel and more profitable ways of reading. He illustrates his approach with exemplary readings of Virgil, Ovid, Horace and Lucan

Latin poetry and the judgement of taste : an essay in aesthetics by Charles Martindale( Book )
26 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 347 libraries worldwide
"This book examines the value of aesthetics. Martindale argues that Kant's analysis of 'the judgement of taste', the judgement that something is beautiful, remains of fundamental importance for the modern critic. He explores the relationship between form and content in poetry and urges the value of aesthetic criticism as pioneered by Walter Pater"--Provided by publisher

Lucan by Lucan( Book )
7 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"In this edition Professor Fantham offers the first full-scale commentary on the neglected second book of Lucan's epic poem on the war between Caesar and Pompey: De bello civili. Book II presents all three leading figures - Cato, Caesar and Pompey - in speech and action. It expresses the moral and political dilemma of civil war and portrays Pompey's loss of authority during his withdrawal from Italy in language designed to evoke and cancel Virgil's heroic presentation of the foundation myth of Aeneas. It is a book rich in the history and geography of Roman Italy, including the retrospective narrative of Marius' and Sulla's reigns of civil terror at Rome, an unusual wedding scene, a verbal map of Italy, and a swift-paced narrative of Caesar's blockade and Pompey's Dunkirk-like evacuation of the republican forces from Brundisium." "In her introduction Professor Fantham gives a general account of Lucan's life and work, and continues with a discussion of his narrative and interpretation of Caesar's military 'invasion' of Italy covering books I and II, a survey of language, style and metre, and a brief history of the text."--Jacket

The Oxford history of classical reception in English literature ( Book )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
The Oxford history of classical receptio'n in English Literature (OHCREL) is designed to offer a comprehensive investigation of the numerous and diverse ways in which literary texts of the classical world have stimulated responses and refashioning by English writers. Covering the full range of English literature from the early Middle Ages to the present day, OHCREL both synthesizes existing scholarship and presents cutting-edge new research, employing an international team of expert contributors for each of the five volumes. 00OHCREL endeavours to interrogate, rather than inertly reiterate, conventional assumptions about literary 'periods', the processes of canon-formation, and the relations between literary and non-literary discourse. It conceives of 'reception' as a complex process of dialogic exchange and, rather than offering large cultural generalizations, it engages in close critical analysis of literary texts. It explores in detail the ways in which English writers' engagement with classical literature casts as much light on the classical originals as it does on the English writers' own cultural context. 00This first volume, and fourth to appear in the series, covers the years c.800-1558, and surveys the reception and transformation of classical literary culture in England from the Anglo-Saxon period up to the Henrician era
