The Oxford handbook of Roman studies ( Book )
17 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 420 libraries worldwide
"The Oxford Handbook of Roman Studies is a unique collection oi fifty-five articles which together explore the ways in which ancient Rome has been, is, ami might be studied. It is intended less as an encyclopaedia of the well-established, and more a research tool to aid the development ol the subject: a guide that does not just inform but also inspires. The emphasis is on the different ways in which evidence can be used, on the breadth and potential of Roman Studies, and on informing dialogue between its subdisciplines, with the aim of widening the perspective of readers as well as meeting their particular needs for informations. The volume includes guidance on primary sources (especially useful in areas where this is complex, such as epigraphy and numismatics), and bibliographies of suggested reading." "The Oxford Handbooks series is a major new initiative in academic publishing. Each volume offers an authoritative and state-of-the-art survey of current thinking and research in a particular subject area. Specially commissioned essays from leading international figures in the discipline give critical examinations of the progress and direction of debates. Oxford Handbooks provide scholars and graduate students with compelling new perspectives upon a wide range of subjects in the humanities and social sciences"--Jacket
The poet and the prince : Ovid and Augustan discourse by Alessandro Barchiesi( Book )
8 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 418 libraries worldwide
Ovid's Fasti, a "calendar poem" on the holidays and feast days of the Roman calendar, was written in Rome and revised while Ovid was in exile on the barbarian frontier, banished by Augustus from the cultivated society of Rome that had been his delight. Ovid's work in exile evinces complicated motives; he addresses Augustus and begs him to lift the despised exile, but at the same time Ovid covertly critiques Augustus's "New Rome." Recent scholarship has concentrated on the oppositions between poet and ruler revealed in Ovid's work

The Cambridge companion to Roman satire by Kirk Freudenburg( Book )
4 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in Italian and held by 44 libraries worldwide
"Satire as a distinct genre of writing was first developed by the Romans in the second century B.C.E. Regarded by them as uniquely "their own," satire held a special place in the Roman imagination as the one genre that could address the problems of city life from the perspective of a "real Roman." In this Cambridge Companion an international team of scholars provides a stimulating introduction to Roman satire's core practitioners and practices, placing them within the contexts of Greco-Roman literary and political history. Besides addressing basic questions of authors, content, and form, the volume looks to the question of what satire "does" within the world of Greco-Roman social exchanges, and goes on to treat the genre's further development, reception, and translation in Elizabethan England and beyond. Included are studies of the prosimetric, "Menippean" satires that would become the models for Rabelais, Erasmus, More, and (narrative satire's crowning jewel) Swift."--Jacket
Letteratura latina : manuale storico dalle origini alla fine dell'impero romano by Gian Biagio Conte( Book )
13 editions published between 1987 and 2007 in Italian and held by 42 libraries worldwide
Seneca's Phoenissae : introduction and commentary by Marica Frank( Book )
15 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 41 libraries worldwide
This is the first commentary in English on Seneca's Phoenissae, an intriguing work on account of its unusual structure and state of incompletion. The substantial introduction deals, inter alia, with the question of the unity and purpose of the work; the absence of an ending and of choral lyrics; the philosophical, rhetorical, and political content; Seneca's treatment of the Theban legend. The commentary is primarily a literary analysis of the text, but textual, linguistic, metrical, and grammatical difficulties are also elucidated. With the resurgence of interest in Senecan drama in the last two decades, this book is a valuable addition to English commentaries that appeared on most of the plays
