    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 126.00

    In recent years interest has grown for the study of ancient declamation (both Greek and Latin), and not only amongst classical scholars, but also in legal, literary and anthropological studies.

    The quest to understand the evolution of the literary mind has become a fertile field of inquiry and speculation for scholars across literary studies and cognitive science.

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    Following in the tradition of recent work by cultural geographers and historians of maps, this collection examines the apparently familiar figure of Robin Hood as he can be located within spaces that are geographical, cultural, and temporal.

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    Juvenal?s satire continues to fascinate his readers and to challenge scholars by the constant interplay of a strong poetical identity, a keen historical perception, and an irresoluble ideological tension. The essays collected in this volume pursue these three strands from different but complementary perspectives, aiming at a firmer assessment of the... more...

  • Si verba teneremby Bruna Pieri; Daniele Pellacani

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 126.00

    We cannot fully understand the development of Roman poetry if we ignore the works that survive only in fragments, or that are known only through quotations or allusions. During the last two decades, studies on this topic have been fostered by the collections of Courtney, Hollis and Blänsdorf, but there is still room for further improvement in editing... more...

  • Deutsche Thukydidesübersetzungen vom 18. bis zum 20. Jahrhundertby Johann Martin Thesz

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 112.00

    Das Geschichtswerk des Thukydides zeichnet sich durch einen Stil aus, der syntaktische Komplexität, gesuchte Unregelmäßigkeit und eine teils extreme Komprimierung der Sprache miteinander verbindet. Wie Thukydides selbst erklärt, war sein Werk nicht für Rezitationen bestimmt, sondern es sollte im einsamen Leseakt studiert und erarbeitet werden. Aufgrund... more...

  • Pseudoantike Skulptur IIby Sascha Kansteiner

    De Gruyter 2017; US$ 91.99

    Eines der Leitmotive der antiken Bildhauerkunst ist die Orientierung an Werken vergangener Epochen. Bei der Beschäftigung mit idealplastischen Skulpturen von der Hand griechischer Bildhauer, die im späten Hellenismus und in der römischen Kaiserzeit tätig gewesen sind, stellt sich daher häufig die Frage, ob die Bildhauer im Einzelfall ein berühmtes... more...
