This book argues that the "Aeneid"'s main purpose is to present a series of emotionally gripping episodes, not to praise Aeneas and his mission, criticize them or express "two voices" concerning them. Furthermore this approach explains what happens in the "Aeneid" better than the assumption that its purpose is to propound a message, that is how it was usually regarded into the nineteenth century and that is what the ancient Greek and Romans regarded as the primary purpose of literature.

Virgil A Study In Civilized Poetry

In this classic study, Brooks Otis presents Virgil as a radically different poet from any of his Greek or Roman predecessors. Virgil molded the ancient epic tradition to his own Roman contemporary aims and succeeded in making mythical and legendary figures meaningful to a sophisticated, unmythical age. Otis begins and ends his study with the Aeneid and includes chapters on the Bucolics and the Georgics. A new foreword by Ward W. Briggs, Jr., places Otis’s groundbreaking achievement in the context of past and present Virgilian scholarship.

The Oxford Anthology Of Roman Literature

Though the wonders of ancient Roman culture continue to attract interest across the disciplines, it is difficult to find a lively, accessible collection of the full range of the era's literature in English. The Oxford Anthology of Roman Literature provides a general introduction to the literature of the Roman empire at its zenith, between the second century BC and the second century AD. Two features of this extraordinarily fertile period in literary achievement as evidenced by this anthology are immediately and repeatedly clear: how similar the Romans' view of the world was to our own and, perhaps even more obviously, how different it was. Most of the authors included in the anthology wrote in Latin, but as the anthology moves forward in time, relevant Greek texts that reflect the cultural diversity of Roman literary life are also included, something no other such anthology has done in the past. Roman literature was wonderfully creative and diverse, and the texts in this volume were chosen from a broad range of genres: drama, epic, philosophy, satire, lyric poetry, love poetry. By its very nature an anthology can abbreviate and thus obscure the most attractive features of even a masterpiece, so the two editors have not only selected texts that capture the essence of the respective authors, but also have included accompanying introductions and afterwords that will guide the reader in pursuing further reading. The presentations of the selections are enlivened with illustrations that locate the works within the contexts of the world in which they were written and enjoyed. The student and general reader will come away from this learned yet entertaining anthology with a fuller appreciation of the place occupied by literature in the Roman world.

A student-friendly introduction to Latin Learning Latin can prove daunting even to the brightest students. But this innovative text draws students into the story of Rome and lets Virgil and Livy lead the way in learning declensions and conjugations. Latin Alive and Well is a classroom-tested textbook consisting of 36 units. It is designed for both high school and university classes, in both two-semester courses and intensive one-semester courses. Clear and direct, it avoids lengthy explanations in teaching grammar, instead introducing modern students to this venerable language by focusing on exercises and translations that make fine points of grammar more readily understandable. P. L. Chambers presents essential elements of grammar in a way that enables students to read classical authors immediately, introducing them to a passage from Virgil as early as the fifth chapter. In addition to using selected readings in Roman mythology, history, and philosophy to illustrate grammatical points, she has adopted an informal, encouraging tone, with a healthy dose of humor when appropriate. Latin Alive and Well is written so simply that students with no previous exposure to a foreign language can understand and learn the grammatical concepts. Previously available only in privately published editions, it has been used nationwide.
