(P/B) THE BATTLE OF MARATHON
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0552

How did the city-state of Athens defeat the invaders from Persia, the first world empire, on the plain of Marathon in 490 BCE? Clever scholars skeptical of our earliest surviving source, Herodotus, have produced one ingenious theory after another. In this stimulating new book, bound to provoke controversy, Peter Krentz argues that Herodotus was right after all. Beginning his analysis with the Athenians' first formal contact with the Persians in 507 BCE, Krentz weaves together ancient evidence with travelers' descriptions, archaeological d...

(P/B) THE COMPLETE POEMS OF JOHN WILMOT, EARL OF ROCHESTER
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0313

John Wilmot, the notorious Earl of Rochester, was the darling of the polished, profligate court of Charles II. One of the finest poets of the Restoration, patron to important playwrights, model for countless witty young rakes in Restoration comedies, he lived a full but short life, dying in 1680 (with a dramatic deathbed renunciation of his atheism) at the age of 33. This edition of Rochester's poetry is annotated and introduced by David M. Vieth. Rochester had many admirers: Graham Greene wrote "Lord Rochester's Monkey"; Daniel Defoe quot...

300 BC - AD 700
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0626

This masterful history of the monumental architecture of Alexandria, as well as of the rest of Egypt, encompasses an entire millennium - from the city's founding by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C. to the years just after the Islamic conquest of A.D. 642. Long considered lost beyond recall, the architecture of ancient Alexandria has until now remained mysterious. But here Judith McKenzie shows that it is indeed possible to reconstruct the city and many of its buildings by means of meticulous exploration of archaeological remains, written so...

(H/B) WHY PHOTOGRAPHY MATTERS AS ART AS NEVER BEFORE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0464

From the late 1970s onward, serious art photography began to be made at large scale and for the wall. Michael Fried argues that this immediately compelled photographers to grapple with issues centering on the relationship between the photograph and the viewer standing before it that until then had been the province only of painting. Fried further demonstrates that certain philosophically deep problems - associated with notions of theatricality, literalness, and objecthood, and touching on the role of original intention in artistic producti...

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0189

(P/B) THE BRAZEN PLAGIARIST
SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0647

Winner of the 2014 Greek National Translation Prize. Kiki Dimoula's poetry - the most praised and prized in contemporary Greek literature - is a paradox, both mysteriously intricate and widely popular. Her magic lens defamiliarizes all that is familiar, compressing distances between far-flung realms, conflating concrete and abstract, literal and metaphorical, physical and metaphysical. Exacting and oracular at once, Dimoula superimposes absurdity on rationality, caustic irony on dark melancholy. This first English translation of a wide se...

EVERYDAY FORMS OF PEASANT RESISTANCE

Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0709

The extraordinary story of the intermingled civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, spanning more than six millennia from the late Bronze Age to the seventh century. The magnificent civilization created by the ancient Greeks and Romans is the greatest legacy of the classical world.

Tony Spawforth, an esteemed scholar, author, and media contributor, follows the thread of civilization through more than six millennia...
