  • Tragic Failuresby Evina Sistakou

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    This is the first study considering the reception of Greek tragedy and the transformation of the tragic idea in Hellenistic poetry. The focus is on third-century Alexandria, where the Ptolemies fostered tragedy as a theatrical form for public entertainment and as an official genre cultivated by the Pleiad, whereas the scholars of the Museum were commissioned... more...

  • Kommentar zu Seneca Maior, "Controversiae", Buch Iby Francesco Citti; Biagio Santorelli; Antonio Stramaglia

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    At his sudden death in 1987, Håkanson left a number of unpublished scholarly works. A former volume in this series (2014) printed four essays on the pseudo-Quintilianic Major Declamations ; one more has appeared elsewhere. The present volume contains a commentary on Book One of the Controversiae by Seneca the Elder. After an introductory note... more...

  • Wordplay and Powerplay in Latin Poetryby Phillip Mitsis; Ioannis Ziogas

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 168.00

    The political allegiances of major Roman poets have been notoriously difficult to pin down, in part because they often shift the onus of political interpretation from themselves to their readers. By the same token, it is often difficult to assess their authorial powerplays in the etymologies, puns, anagrams, telestichs, and acronyms that feature prominently... more...

  • Disjunktion und Diskrepanzby Kai Schöpe

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 112.00

    Die im literarhistorischen Kanon eher randständig behandelte Travestie betrifft tatsächlich die Mitte eines epistemischen Spannungsfeldes, nämlich das intrikate Verhältnis von provokativem Regelbruch und dem Bestehen eines verbindlichen Regelsystems bzw. Regeldenkens in der Frühen Neuzeit. Die Studie widmet sich daher vergleichend den ersten europäischen... more...

  • Greek Texts and Armenian Traditionsby Francesca Gazzano; Lara Pagani; Giusto Traina

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    An interdisciplinary approach, crucial as it is in most fields of research, proves itself to be unescapable in the study of interactions between the ancient Armenian and Greek worlds and literatures. The volume arises from such an awareness and collects papers presented in a conference which has been organized in 2013 at the University of Genova,... more...

  • The Art of Historyby Vasileios Liotsakis; Scott Farrington

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    A significant trend in the study of Greek and Roman historiographers is to accept that their works are to a degree both science and fiction. As scholarly interest broadens, in addition to evaluating ancient historians on the basis of the reliability of the information they record, and verifying the narratives against various elements of the material... more...

  • T. Calpurnius Siculusby Evangelos Karakasis

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 154.00

    T. Calpurnius Siculus: A Pastoral Poet in Neronian Rome is the first ever detailed examination of the whole of Calpurnius' pastoral corpus in English. It aims to offer an overall picture of Calpurnius’ epigonal and generically transcending poetics and meta-poetics through a thorough comparative analysis of the generic interfaces between the bucolic... more...
