Sound, sense, and rhythm listening to Greek and Latin poetry by Mark W Edwards( file )
17 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 1,526 libraries worldwide
This book concerns the way we read--or rather, imagine we are listening to--ancient Greek and Latin poetry. Through clear and penetrating analysis Mark Edwards shows how an understanding of the effects of word order and meter is vital for appreciating the meaning of classical poetry, composed for listening audiences. The first of four chapters examines Homer's emphasis of certain words by their positioning; a passage from the Iliad is analyzed, and a poem of Tennyson illustrates English parallels. The second considers Homer's techniques of disguising the break in the narrative when changing a s

Neoplatonic saints : the lives of Plotinus and Proclus by their students by M. J Edwards( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
"This volume presents two texts that are fundamental for the understanding not only of Neoplatonism but also of the conventions of biography in late antiquity. Porphyry's memoir, On the Life of Plotinus and the Arrangement of his Works, is a robust defence of the founder of Neoplatonism against posthumous criticism from astrologers and other philosophers. Written by one of his pupils, Porphyry, it is as much a vindication of its author as an encomium of its subject. Proclus, or On Happiness, also written by a pupil of the master, sets out to show how Proclus had lived his own philosophy. Both of these translations illuminate the ancient view that the worth of a philosopher derived as much from the quality of his life as the merits of his writings. Neither work has received such extensive annotation before in English, and this new commentary makes full use of recent scholarship. The long introduction is intended both as a beginner's guide to Neoplatonism and as a survey of ancient biographical writing."-- Publisher description
