The fortunes of Apuleius and the Golden Ass : a study in transmission and reception by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )
6 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 400 libraries worldwide
"This book traces the transmission and reception of one of the most influential novels in Western literature. The Golden Ass, the only ancient Roman novel to survive in its entirety, tells of a young man changed into an ass by magic and his bawdy adventures and narrow escapes before the goddess Isis changes him back again. Its centerpiece is the famous story of Cupid and Psyche. Julia Gaisser follows Apuleius' racy tale from antiquity through the sixteenth century, tracing its journey from roll to codex in fourth-century Rome, into the medieval library of Monte Cassino, into the hands of Italian humanists, into print, and, finally, over the Alps and into translation in Spanish, French, German, and English. She demonstrates that the novel's reception was linked with Apuleius' reputation as a philosopher and the persona he projected in his works. She relates Apuleius and the Golden Ass to a diverse cast of important literary and historical figures--including Augustine, Fulgentius, Petrarch, Boccaccio, Bessarion, Boiardo, and Beroaldo. Paying equal attention to the novel's transmission (how it survived) and its reception (how it was interpreted), she places the work in its many different historical contexts, examining its representation in art, literary imitation, allegory, scholarly commentary, and translation. The volume contains several appendixes, including an annotated list of the manuscripts of the Golden Ass."--Jacket

Catullus and his Renaissance readers by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )

Pierio Valeriano on the ill fortune of learned men : a Renaissance humanist and his world by Pierio Valeriano( Book )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and Multiple languages and held by 208 libraries worldwide
These humanists, including Valeriano, are gathered together discussing the lives and unhappy fortunes of humanists from 1470 to 1540. The stories are interesting not only for the direct historical information they provide but also because they present Italian humanism as an organic network of intersecting lives and because they portray complex response to both the Sack of Rome and to its psychological aftereffects in the curial and humanist community."--Jacket

Catull : Dichter der Leidenschaft by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in German and held by 45 libraries worldwide
Gaius Valerius Catullus (ca. 86-54 v. Chr.) war einer der ganz großen Dichter der römischen Republik. Seine Werke allerdings sind alles andere als leicht zugänglich und geben Rätsel auf. Julia Haig Gaisser arbeitet die Widersprüche im Leben und der Dichtung Catulls gekonnt heraus: Einerseits ist da der wenig respektvolle Zyniker aus reichem Hause, der in seinen Gedichten bedeutende Zeitgenossen wie Caesar und Cicero mit beißendem Spottüberzieht. Auf der anderen Seite erleben wir ihn als feinfühligen Liebenden und Verehrer der griechischen Poetin Sappho. Mit dieser Einführung in sein facettenrei

Catullus. Oxford Readings in Classic Studies ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
Oxford Readings in Catullus is a collection of articles that represent a sampling of the most interesting and important work on Catullus from around 1950 to 2000, together with three very short pieces from the Renaissance. The readings, selected for their intrinsic interest and importance, are intended to be thought-provoking (and in some cases provocative) and to challenge readers to look at Catullus in different ways. They demonstrate a number of approaches - stylistic, historical, literary-historical, New Critical, and theoretical (of several flavours). Such hermeneutic diversity is particularly appropriate in the case of Catullus, whose oeuvre is famously - some might say notoriously - varied in length, genre, tone, and subject matter. The collection as a whole demonstrates what has interested Catullus' readers in the last half century and suggests some of the ways in which they might approach his poetry in the future. It is accompanied by an introduction by Julia Haig Gaisser on themes in Catullan criticism from 1950 to 2000
