Catullus by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )
54 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 631 libraries worldwide
"Julia Gaisser situates Catullus in his historical context, explaining the social and sexual conventions underlying his work. She treats Catullus's language, meters, and poetic architecture as essential elements of his poetry and shows how he has used them to achieve his poetic effects. She discusses the physical constraints and artistic possibilities of the papyrus roll, the character or persona that Catullus presents in his poetry, the ways in which his poems resonate both with each other and with earlier poetry and the interpretations of his readers from antiquity to the present."--Back cover
The fortunes of Apuleius and the Golden Ass : a study in transmission and reception by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )
11 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 429 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

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 3 languages and held by 223 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
Dialogues by Giovanni Gioviano Pontano( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 203 libraries worldwide
"Giovanni Pontano (1426-1503), whose academic name was Gioviano, was the most important Latin poet of the fifteenth century as well as a leading statesman who served as prime minister to the Aragonese kings of Naples. His Dialogues are our best source for the humanist academy of Naples which Pontano led for several decades. They provide a vivid picture of literary life in the capital of the Aragonese seaborne empire, based in southern Italy and the Western Mediterranean. This first volume contains the two earliest of Pontano's five dialogues. Charon, set in the underworld of classical mythology, illustrates humanist attitudes to a wide range of topics, satirizing the follies and superstitions of humanity. Antonius, a Menippean satire named for the founder of the Neapolitan Academy, Antonio Beccadelli, is set in the Portico Antoniano in downtown Naples, where the academicians commemorate and emulate their recently-deceased leader, conversing on favorite topics and stopping from time to time to interrogate passersby. This volume contains a freshly-edited Latin text of these dialogues and the first translation of them into English."--Publisher's description

Composed between the eighth and fifth centuries BC, the so-called Homeric Hymns are epic songs dedicated to various gods, and by tradition (falsely) attributed to Homer, the poet of the Iliad and Odyssey. 'The Homeric Hymn to Demeter' is one of the oldest"--Back cover blurb

Catullus (Oxford readings in classical studies) by Julia Haig Gaisser( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in Undetermined and English and held by 1 library 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
