BOOKS 51-55
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0148

Dio Cassius (Cassius Dio), ca. 150- 235 CE, was born at Nicaea in Bithynia in Asia Minor. On the death of his father (Roman governor of Cilicia) he went in 180 to Rome, entered the Senate, and under the emperor Commodus was an advocate.

Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0498

Plato of Athens, who laid the foundations of the Western philosophical tradition and in range and depth ranks among its greatest practitioners, was born to a prosperous and politically active family circa 427 BC. In early life an admirer of Socrates, Plato later founded the first institution of higher learning in the West, the Academy, among whose many notable alumni was Aristotle. Traditionally ascribed to Plato are thirty-five dialogues developing Socrates' dialectic method and composed with great stylistic virtuosity, together with the ...

(H/B) AESCHYLUS (VOLUME I)
PERSIANS. SEVEN AGAINST THEBES. SUPPLIANTS. PROMETHEUS BOUND
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0289

The Loeb edition of Aeschylus by Herbert Weir Smyth is now more than eighty years old, and its translation is couched in a pastiche version of the English of several centuries earlier. It was augmented in 1957 by the addition of an invaluable appendix by Hugh Lloyd-Jones, updating the Fragments section in the light of papyrus discoveries, but no changes were made to the original portion of the work. Aeschylus has long been overdue for a Loeb edition that would provide a text based on up-to-date information and a translation intelligible to...

(H/B) JEROME: SELECT LETTERS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0416

Jerome (Eusebius Sophronius Hieronymus), ca. 345-420, of Stridon, Dalmatia, son of Christian parents, at Rome listened to rhetoricians, legal advocates, and philosophers, and in 360 was baptized by Pope Liberius. He travelled widely in Gaul and in Asia Minor; and turned in the years 373-379 to hermetic life in Syria. Ordained presbyter at Antioch in 379 he went to Constantinople, met Gregory of Nazianzus and advanced greatly in scholarship. He was called to Rome in 382 to help Pope Damasus, at whose suggestion he began his revision of the ...

(P/B) GREEK RELIGION
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0280

In this book Walter Burkert, the most eminent living historian of ancient Greek religion, has produced the standard work for our time on that subject. First published in German in 1977, it has now been translated into English with the assistance of the author himself. A clearly structured and readable survey for students and scholars, it will be welcomed as the best modern account of any polytheistic religious system. Burkert draws on archaeological discoveries, insights from other disciplines, and inscriptions in Linear B to reconstruct t...

(P/B) AMPHOTEROGLOSSIA
A POETICS OF THE TWELFTH-CENTURY MEDIEVAL GREEK NOVEL
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0604

This work offers the first systematic and interdisciplinary study of the poetics of the twelfth-century medieval Greek novel. This book investigates the complex ways in which rhetorical theory and practice constructed the overarching cultural aesthetics that conditioned the production and reception of the genre of the novel in twelfth-century Byzantine society. By examining the indigenous rhetorical concept of amphoteroglossia, this book probes unexplored aspects of the re-inscription of inherited allegorical, comic, and rhetorical modes i...

(H/B) SOPHOCLES (VOLUME III)
FRAGMENTS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0567

Sophocles (497/6-406 BCE), with Aeschylus and Euripides, was one of the three great tragic poets of Athens, and is considered one of the world's greatest poets. The subjects of his plays were drawn from mythology and legend. Each play contains at least one heroic figure, a character whose strength, courage, or intelligence exceeds the human norm - but who also has more than ordinary pride and self-assurance. These qualities combine to lead to a tragic end. Hugh Lloyd-Jones gives us, in two volumes, a new translation of the seven surviving ...

(H/B) ARISTOTLE (VOLUME II)

Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0307

Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 BCE, was the son of Nicomachus, a physician, and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there (367-347); subsequently he spent three years at the court of a former pupil, Hermeias, in Asia Minor and at this time married Pythias, one of Hermeias's relations. After some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of...

(H/B) PLATO (VOLUME III)
LYSIS. SYMPOSIUM. GORGIAS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0500

Plato, the great philosopher of Athens, was born in 427 BCE. In early manhood an admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish th...

(H/B) HOMER: ILIAD (VOLUME II)
BOOKS 13-24
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0406

Here is a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Homer’s stirring heroic account of the Trojan war and its passions. The eloquent and dramatic epic poem captures the terrible anger of Achilles, "the best of the Achaeans," over a grave insult to his personal honor and relates its tragic result--a chain of consequences that proves devastating for the Greek forces besieging Troy, for noble Trojans, and for Achilles himself. The poet gives us compelling characterizations of his protagonists as well as a remarkable study of the heroic code in an...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0408

Here is a new Loeb Classical Library edition of the resplendent epic tale of Odysseus’s long journey home from the Trojan War and the legendary temptations, delays, and perils he faced at every turn. Homer’s classic poem features Odysseus’s encounters with the beautiful nymph Calypso; the queenly but wily Circe; the Lotus-eaters, who fed his men their memory-stealing drug; the man-eating, one-eyed Cyclops; the Laestrygonian giants; the souls of the dead in Hades; the beguiling Sirens; the treacherous Scylla and Charybdis. Here, too, is the...

(H/B) SUETONIUS (VOLUME II)
LIVES OF THE CAESARS (VOLUME II)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0577

Suetonius (C. Suetonius Tranquillus, born ca. 70 CE), son of a military tribune, was at first an advocate and a teacher of rhetoric, but later became the emperor Hadrian's private secretary, 119-121. He dedicated to C. Septicius Clarus, prefect of the praetorian guard, his Lives of the Caesars. After the dismissal of both men for some breach of court etiquette, Suetonius apparently retired and probably continued his writing. His other works, many known by title, are now lost except for part of the Lives of Illustrious Men (of letters). Fri...

Though the revised edition of A Theory of Justice, published in 1999, is the definitive statement of Rawls’s view, so much of the extensive literature on Rawls’s theory refers to the first edition. This reissue makes the first edition once again available for scholars and serious students of Rawls’s work. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0072

Emily Dickinson, poet of the interior life, imagined words/swords, hurling barbed syllables/piercing. Nothing about her adult appearance or habitation revealed such a militant soul. Only poems, written quietly in a room of her own, often hand-stitched in small volumes, then hidden in a drawer, revealed her true self. She did not live in time but in universals--an acute, sensitive nature reaching out boldly from self-referral to a wider, imagined world. Dickinson died without fame; only a few poems were published in her lifetime. Her legac...

(P/B) A CRITIQUE OF POSTCOLONIAL REASON
TOWARD A HISTORY OF THE VANISHING PRESENT
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0812

Are the "culture wars" over? When did they begin? What is their relationship to gender struggle and the dynamics of class? In her first full treatment of postcolonial studies, a field that she helped define, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, one of the world's foremost literary theorists, poses these questions from within the postcolonial enclave. "We cannot merely continue to act out the part of Caliban," Spivak writes; and her book is an attempt to understand and describe a more responsible role for the postcolonial critic. A Critique of Postc...

Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS

In the frenzied final years of the Weimar Republic, amid economic collapse and mounting political catastrophe, Walter Benjamin emerged as the most original practicing literary critic and public intellectual in the German-speaking world. Volume 2 of the Selected Writings is now available in paperback in two parts. In Part 1, Benjamin is represented by two of his greatest literary essays, "Surrealism" and "On the Image of Proust," as well as by a long article on Goethe and a generous selection of his wide-ranging commentary for Weimar German...
