Most widely held works by Katharina Volk
Seeing Seneca whole perspectives on philosophy, poetry, and politics ( Computer File )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 992 libraries worldwide
This volume contains ten essays by an international group of scholars on various aspects of the work of L. Annaeus Seneca the Younger, the famous (some would say, notorious) Roman playwright, philosopher, and politician of the Claudian and Neronian periods. Approaching Seneca from a number of different angles, the authors endeavor both to illuminate individual aspects of the writer's enormous output and to discern common themes among the many different genres practiced by Seneca. Given its interdisciplinary approach, the collection is of interest to classicists, historians, and historians of philosophy alike

Forgotten stars : rediscovering Manilius' Astronomica ( Book )
7 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"The 'Astronomica' of Manilius is a poem in five books, at least partly written under Augustus, which purports to teach the reader the art of astrology and the means by which an accurate horoscope may be cast. It is, therefore, a text from the classical age of Roman literature which deals with a topic to whose enduring popular interest any Western daily newspaper will testify. And yet, despite some notable modern exceptions, the infamously harsh verdict of Manilius' most famous twentieth-century editor, A. E. Housman, continues to cast an imposing shadow on the poem, especially for Anglophone readers. 'Forgotten Stars' seeks to lift this shadow once and for all, as it brings together an international contingent of scholars for an interdisciplinary exploration of Manilius at an auspiciously significant time, close to the bimillennial celebration of the poem's composition. The range of perspectives from which Manilius is approached in the present volume is testament both to his complexity as a writer and to the variety of fruitful avenues there are for enquiry. Matters of literary interest, especially generic affiliation and intertextuality, are complemented by approaches which assess the socio-political, philosophical, scientific, and astrological resonance of the poem. Moreover, as a salutary counterbalance to the relative neglect of our author in recent times, the popular reception of the poem, especially in the Renaissance, is also explored"--Publisher's description, p. [4] of cover
