  • Aiasby Sophocles; Herbert Golder; Richard Pevear

    Oxford University Press, USA 1999; US$ 9.99

    Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can properly recreate the celebrated Greek tragedies, the Greek Tragedy in New Translation series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals.

  • Bakkhaiby Euripides; Reginald Gibbons; Charles Segal

    Oxford University Press, USA 2001; US$ 34.99

    Regarded by many as Euripides' masterpiece, Bakkhai is a powerful examination of religious ecstasy and the resistance to it. A call for moderation, it rejects the temptation of pure reason as well as pure sensuality, and is a staple of Greek tragedy, representing in structure and thematics an exemplary model of the classic tragic elements. Disguised... more...

  • The Origins of Criticismby Andrew Ford

    Princeton University Press 2009; US$ 46.00

    By "literary criticism" we usually mean a self-conscious act involving the technical and aesthetic appraisal, by individuals, of autonomous works of art. Aristotle and Plato come to mind. The word "social" does not. Yet, as this book shows, it should--if, that is, we wish to understand where literary criticism as we think of it today came from. Andrew... more...

    In this collection of interpretative essays on Flavius Philostratus? Vita Apollonii , leading scholars and younger critics make for a combination of methodological continuity and innovation.

  • Plato and Hesiodby G. R. Boys-Stones; J. H. Haubold

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 124.99

    It hardly needs repeating that Plato defined philosophy partly by contrast with the work of the poets. What is extraordinary is how little systematic exploration there has been of his relationship with specific poets other than Homer. This neglect extends even to Hesiod, though Hesiod is of central importance for the didactic tradition quite generally,... more...
