The Cambridge companion to Virgil by Charles Martindale( Book )
37 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 1,032 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 fresh and sophisticated insights which point to the shape of Virgilian scholarship and criticism to come

24 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 826 libraries worldwide
Shakespeare and the classics ( Book )
30 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 782 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 )
33 editions published between 1990 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 701 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 628 libraries worldwide
Horace made new : Horatian influences on British writing from the Renaissance to the twentieth century ( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 2009 in English and held by 408 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 392 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 345 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

Civil war by Lucan( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
"Lucan lived from 39-65 AD at a time of great turbulence in Rome. His Civil War portrays two of the most colourful and powerful figures of the age-Julius Caesar and Pompey the Great, enemies in a vicious struggle for power that severed bloodlines and began the transformation of Roman civilization. With Right locked in combat with Might, law and order broke down and the anarchic violence that resulted left its mark on the Roman people forever, paving the way for the imperial monarchy. Accessible and modern yet loyal to the rhetorical brilliance of the original, this will be the definitive Civil War of our times."--Publisher's website
Civil war by Julius Caesar( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 11 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

Roman presences : receptions of Rome in European culture, 1789-1945 by Catharine Edwards( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This collection of essays explores aspects of the reception of ancient Rome in a number of European countries from the late 18th century to the end of the Second World War. Rome has been made to stand for literary authority, republican heroism, imperial power and decline, the Catholic church, the pleasure of ruins. The studies offered here examine some of the sometimes strange and unexpected places where Roman presences have manifested themselves during this period. Scholars from several disciplines, including English literature and history of art, as well as classics, bring to bear a variety of approaches on a wide range of images and texts, from statues of Napoleon to Freud's analysis of dreams. Rome's seemingly boundless capacity for multiple, indeed conflicting, signification has made it an extraordinarily fertile paradigm for making sense of--and also for destabilising--history, politics, identity, memory and desire
