Seeing Seneca whole : perspectives on philosophy, poetry, and politics by Katharina Volk( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 247 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

Vergil's Georgics ( Book )
14 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 233 libraries worldwide
"Vergil's poem on agriculture has often been overshadowed by the Aeneid but is a fascinating work in its own right. This volume collects ten papers, written between 1970 and 1995 by leading classical scholars, and is meant as an invitation to (re)discover Vergil's didactic work through recent developments in Vergilian criticism."--Jacket
Forgotten stars : rediscovering Manilius' Astronomica ( Book )
14 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 213 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
Roman reflections : studies in Latin philosophy ( Book )
13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
This volume aims to reassert the significance of Roman philosophy and to explore the "Romanness" of philosophical writings and practices in the Roman world. The contributors reveal that the Romans, in their creative adaptation of Greek modes of thought, developed sophisticated forms of philosophical discourse shaped by their own history and institutions, concepts and values-and last, but not least, by the Latin language, which nearly all Roman philosophers used to express their ideas.0The thirteen chapters-which are authored by an international group of specialists in ancient philosophy, Latin literature, and Roman social and intellectual history-move from Roman attitudes to and practices of philosophy to the great late Republican writers Cicero and Lucretius, then onwards to the early Empire and the work of Seneca the Younger, and finally to Epictetus, Apuleius, and Augustine. Using a variety of approaches, the essays do not combine into one grand narrative but instead demonstrate the diversity and originality of the Roman philosophical discourse over the centuries
