  • Seneca: Selected Dialogues and Consolationsby Seneca; Peter J. Anderson

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2015; US$ 11.95

    Seneca's dialogues--as his epistolary essays have traditionally been known--offer an ideal path into the philosophical thought of first-century Rome's most famous Stoic, whose compelled suicide in 65 CE (by order of his former pupil Emperor Nero) drew comparisons to the death of Socrates. Notable for, among other things, their portrait of a providential... more...

  • Die römische Liebeselegieby Niklas Holzberg

    WBG - Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft 2015; US$ 175.35

    Die erotische Dichtung der römischen Elegiker Gallus, Properz, Tibull, Pseudo-Tibull und Ovid wird vorgestellt. Dabei werden die Elegiensammlungen jeweils als Ganzes betrachtet.

  • Darkness Visibleby W. R. Johnson

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 22.50

    One of the best books ever written on one of humanity?s greatest epics, W. R. Johnson?s classic study of Vergil?s Aeneid challenges centuries of received wisdom. Johnson rejects the political and historical reading of the epic as a record of the glorious prehistory of Rome and instead foregrounds Vergil?s enigmatic style and questioning of the heroic... more...

  • Sexing the Worldby Anthony Corbeill

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 45.00

    From the moment a child in ancient Rome began to speak Latin, the surrounding world became populated with objects possessing grammatical gender?masculine eyes ( oculi ), feminine trees ( arbores ), neuter bodies ( corpora ). Sexing the World surveys the many ways in which grammatical gender enabled Latin speakers to organize aspects of their society... more...

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 35.00

    The study of Homeric imitations in Vergil has one of the longest traditions in Western culture, starting from the very moment the Aeneid was circulated. Homeric Effects in Vergil?s Narrative is the first English translation of one of the most important and influential modern studies in this tradition. In this revised and expanded edition, Alessandro... more...

  • Studien zur Originalität der römischen Tragödieby Eckard Lefèvre

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 182.00

    The collected papers in this volume, many of them previously unpublished, demonstrate the politcial character of Roman tragedy and show that, during the Imperial period, panegyrics often shifted to opposition. more...

  • Krieg und Bürgerkrieg bei Lucan und in der griechischen Literaturby Annemarie Ambühl

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 168.00

    In his civil war epic, the Roman poet Lucan draws extensively on his literary forbears. This study fills a gap in the research by going beyond the boundaries of language and genre to examine his reception of Greek literature, especially Attic tragedy and Hellenistic poetry. It reveals the importance of mythical and literary models, such... more...

    Frank & Timme 2014; US$ 46.61

Bei einem Blick auf die Fakten handelt es sich bei dem Geschehen in Nordafrika am Ende des zweiten Jahrhunderts... more...

  • Praecepta Tonicaby Iohannes Alexandrinus; Georgios A. Xenis

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

    The Praecepta Tonica by John of Alexandria (5 th -6 th cent. AD) is one of our richest sources for ancient Greek accentuation and an indispensable tool for reconstructing Herodian?s famous De prosodia catholica . Despite its importance, it is available only in a seriously flawed edition brought out by Karl Wilhelm Dindorf in 1825.... more...
