  • The Naming of the Shrewby John Wright

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2014; US$ 6.99

    Latin names – frequently unpronounceable, all too often wrong and always a tiny puzzle to unravel – have been annoying the layman since they first became formalised as scientific terms in the eighteenth century. Why on earth has the entirely land-loving Eastern Mole been named Scalopus aquaticus , or the Oxford Ragwort been called Senecio... more...

  • Philostratus: Biography and Belle Lettres in the Third Century A.S.by Graham Anderson

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 150.00

    This study of Philostratus , first published in 1986, presents the Greek biographer?s treatment of both sophists and holy men in the social and intellectual life of the early Roman Empire, which also displays his own distinctive literary personality as a superficial dilettante and an engrossing snob. Through him we gain a glimpse of the rhetorical... more...

  • Latin Explorations: Critical Studies in Roman Literatureby Kenneth Quinn

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Latin Explorations , first published in 1963, offers a fresh approach to Roman poetry from Catullus to Ovid. Traditionally, the period is divided for specialist studies ? Lyric, Epic and Elegy. In each of them, techniques of interpretation prevail, isolated from contemporary ideas about poetry and dominated by barriers between ?textual?, ?exegetical?... more...

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2014; US$ 13.50

    The study of classical languages by earlier generations of English-speaking students was greatly facilitated by the study of English grammar in the schools, a tradition now out of favor but one that emphasized precisely the concepts, terms, and constructions needed for the study of Greek and Latin. A Student Handbook of Latin and English Grammar... more...
