  • Strategie und Philosophie bei Senecaby Uwe Dietsche

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    How seriously are we to take Seneca?s philosophizing in the Epistulae morales? Much of their content seems inconsistent and designed for mere effect. This study reveals how Seneca?s choice of words and intellectual acuity are subordinated to the pedagogical aim of gradual persuasion. It becomes apparent that Seneca?s formulation is tactical and that... more...

  • The Literary Mind and the Carving of Dragonsby Liu Hsieh; Vincent Yu-Chung Shih; Vincent Yu-Chung Shih

  • Medievalism: Key Critical Termsby Elizabeth Emery; Richard Utz

    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 87.50

    The discipline of medievalism has produced a great deal of scholarship acknowledging the "makers" of the Middle Ages: those who re-discovered the period from 500 to 1500 by engaging with its cultural works, seeking inspiration from them, or fantasizing about them. Yet such approaches - organized by time period, geography, or theme - often lack an... more...

  • So We Read Onby Maureen Corrigan

    Little, Brown and Company 2014; US$ 11.69

    The "Fresh Air" book critic investigates the enduring power of The Great Gatsby -- "The Great American Novel we all think we've read, but really haven't." Conceived nearly a century ago by a man who died believing himself a failure, it's now a revered classic and a rite of passage in the reading lives of millions. But how well do we really know... more...

  • Zenon von Eleaby Gerhard Köhler

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 154.00

    Nearly all the surviving works of Zeno of Elea are mere paraphrases and discussions of his thoughts on the part of later authors. Nevertheless, analysis of all relevant sources does lead to plausible hypotheses about the proper meaning of the ?Paradoxes of plurality? (Frag. B1?3) and the ?Paradox of place? (Frag. B5). It lends a new perspective to... more...

  • Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylusby Richard Rader

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    Theology and Existentialism in Aeschylus revivifies the complex question of fate and freedom in the tragedies of the famous Greek playwright. Starting with Sartre?s insights about radical existential freedom, this book shows that Aeschylus is concerned with the ethical ramifications of surrendering our lives to fatalism (gods, curses, inherited... more...

  • Statius and Virgilby Randall T. Ganiban

    This 2007 book explores the degree to which Statius' Thebaid is engaged in a dialogue with the ideas and poetry of Virgil's Aeneid. more...

  • Fiction on the Fringeby Grammatiki A. Karla

    BRILL 2009; US$ 136.00

    A collection of essays that offers a comprehensive examination of texts that traditionally have been excluded from the main corpus of the ancient Greek novel and confined to the margins of the genre, such as the "Life of Aesop", the "Life of Alexander the Great", and the "Acts of the Christian Martyrs". more...
