    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 110.80

    When is "closure" in fact "false closure", the deceptive opposite of apparent conclusion or perfection? 2009 marked the twentieth anniversary of the publication of Don Fowler's seminal essay "First Thoughts on Closure: Problems and Prospects" (MD 22: 75-122), a work that contributed greatly to bringing about a broad reconsideration in Ancient literary... more...

These plays are 2,500 years old and still performed, for they speak directly to... more...

    Oxford University Press 1999; US$ 99.99

  • Greek Comedy and Ideologyby David Konstan

    Oxford University Press 1995; US$ 119.99
