'If you're one of those terribly serious readers, now is a good time to leave.' The poet we call Martial, Marcus Valerius Martialis, lived by his wits in first-century Rome. Pounding the mean streets of the Empire's capital, he takes apart the pretensions, addictions, and cruelties of its inhabitants with perfect comic timing and killer punchlines. Social climbers and sex-offenders, rogue traders and two-faced preachers - all are subject to his forensic annihilations and often foul-mouthed verses. Packed with incident and detail, Martial's epigrams bring Rome vividly to life in all its variety; biting satire rubs alongside tender friendship, lust for life beside sorrow for loss. Gossipy, clever, and above all entertaining, they express amusement as much as indignation at the vices they expose. This selection brings Martial to a twenty-first century readership in a prose translation that pulls no punches and presents him in all his moods. It establishes his originality as a literary author, and the significance of his achievement as the poet who conquered epigram for Rome.

Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

Queer Shakespeare

Desire and Sexuality

Author: Goran Stanivukovic

Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing

ISBN: 1474295274

Queer Shakespeare: Desire and Sexuality draws together 13 essays, which offer a major reassessment of the criticism of desire, body and sexuality in Shakespeare's drama and poetry. Bringing together some of the most prominent critics working at the intersection of Shakespeare criticism and queer theory, this collection demonstrates the vibrancy of queer Shakespeare studies. Taken together, these essays explore embodiment, desire, sexuality and gender as key objects of analyses, producing concepts and ideas that draw critical energy from focused studies of time, language and nature. The Afterword extends these inquiries by linking the Anthropocene and queer ecology with Shakespeare criticism. Works from Shakespeare's entire canon feature in essays which explore topics like glass, love, antitheatrical homophobia, size, narrative, sound, female same-sex desire and Petrarchism, weather, usury and sodomy, male femininity and male-to-female crossdressing, contagion, and antisocial procreation.

Über die Dichtkunst

Author: Aristoteles

Publisher: e-artnow

ISBN: 8026870514

Category: Philosophy

Page: 127

View: 529

Dieses eBook: "Über die Dichtkunst" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Die Poetik als Vorlesungsgrundlage verfasstes Buch des Aristoteles, das sich mit der Dichtkunst und deren Gattungen beschäftigt. Aristoteles gliedert die Wissenschaften in drei große Gruppen; die Poetik behandelt einen Teil des poietischen, d.h. ‚hervorbringenden‘ menschlichen Wissens in deskriptiver und präskriptiver Weise. In den Bereich der aristotelischen Poetik fallen zunächst all diejenigen Künste, die mimetischen, d. h. nachahmenden bzw. darstellenden Charakter besitzen: Epik, Tragödie, Komödie, Dithyrambendichtung, aber auch Tanz und Musik. Im Verlauf des Werkes zeigt sich aber, dass Aristoteles fast ausschließlich Dichtung im engeren Sinne behandelt, also nachahmende Kunstformen, die sich des Mediums der Sprache bedienen. Aristoteles’ Poetik steht im Zusammenhang mit seiner Rhetorik, insofern beide Schriften Sprache und Kommunikation thematisieren, sowie mit seiner Politik, insofern Dichtkunst wie Redekunst zentrale gesellschaftliche Funktionen in der griechischen Polis hatten.

Leisured Resistance

Villas, Literature and Politics in the Roman World

Author: Michael Dewar

Publisher: A&C Black

ISBN: 1472504127

Category: History

Page: 144

View: 512

Leisured Resistance examines the varied ways in which cultured Roman aristocrats, of very different periods, used their country estates as a political and literary tool. While for some the villas were retreats in which to compose literature and to escape from politics, others adapted this same tradition of cultured otium (or deliberate retirement from everyday politics) to present radical and competing visions of society and literature alike. Examining in-depth sources from both prose and verse from the time of Cicero to the last centuries of the Roman Empire in the west, the title demonstrates how the traditional image of the Roman aristocrat on his country estate was politically and socially very flexible: allowing authors, as times and circumstances changed, to present themselves or their patrons and friends as being in retreat from politics, or alternatively, as providing a focus for political opposition through the deliberate embracing of cultural values and schools of philosophy that offered resistance to prevailing political orthodoxy. The title ends by exploring how this tradition was adapted in the greatly changed world of the barbarian-ruled kingdoms that replaced direct Roman rule in Gaul in the fifth and sixth centuries.

Zum neunten und längsten Buch von Lukans Bürgerkriegsgedicht fehlte bislang ein durchgehender, modernen Ansprüchen genügender Kommentar. Diese Lücke wird nun geschlossen. Der lateinische Text wird von einer neuen deutschen Übersetzung begleitet, in welche alle Erkenntnisse eingeflossen sind, die sich aus dem detaillierten Kommentar ergeben. Einleitend werden Themen wie etwa Lukans Umgang mit den historischen Quellen und verschiedenen literarischen Vorlagen diskutiert. Abgeschlossen wird die Arbeit durch umfangreiche Indices. Neben der Sprach- und Stiluntersuchung stehen durchgehend auch Fragen nach Lukans epischer Technik sowie nach typischen Motiven im Zentrum.

Although deconstruction has become a popular catchword, as an intellectual movement it has never entirely caught on within the university. For some in the academy, deconstruction, and Jacques Derrida in particular, are responsible for the demise of accountability in the study of literature. Countering these facile dismissals of Derrida and deconstruction, Herman Rapaport explores the incoherence that has plagued critical theory since the 1960s and the resulting legitimacy crisis in the humanities. Against the backdrop of a rich, informed discussion of Derrida's writings -- and how they have been misconstrued by critics and admirers alike -- The Theory Mess investigates the vicissitudes of Anglo-American criticism over the past thirty years and proposes some possibilities for reform.

Aphrodite

Herrin des Krieges, Göttin der Liebe

Author: Martina Seifert

Category: History

English summary: Aphrodite is counted among the most well-known and most interesting mythological women of Antiquity. As Goddess of Love and Beauty, she played a crucial role in the Trojan War; as a Goddess in arms, though, she herself displayed martial characteristics. This volume will answer the question of how the cult of Aphrodite was formed and spread. Here, the authors discover, e.g., influences from female deities of the Ancient Near East. In the island of Cyprus, the worshipping of Aphrodite can be traced up until Roman times. Thus, this goddess is not only an ever- popular mythological figure, but at the same time, an example of cultural exchange between East and West. German text. German description: Aphrodite zählt zu den bekanntesten und interessantesten mythischen Frauengestalten der Antike. Als Göttin der Liebe und der Schönheit nahm sie eine Schluesselrolle im Trojanischen Krieg ein; als Göttin in Waffen besaá sie aber auch selbst kriegerische Charakterzuege.Das Buch geht der Frage nach, wie der Aphrodite-Kult entstand und sich verbreitete. Dabei entdecken die Autoren z. B. Einfluesse von weiblichen Kriegsgottheiten aus dem alten Orient. Auf der Insel Zypern lässt sich die Verehrung der Aphrodite bis in römische Zeit nachvollziehen. Und so ist diese Göttin nicht nur eine immer noch populäre Gestalt der Mythologie, sondern zugleich ein Beispiel fuer den kulturellen Austausch zwischen Ost und West.
