9780192892942: Ancient Greek Literature

This historical survey covers the period from 700 BC to AD 550, tracing the development of Greek literature by concentrating on the works of the principal authors of each period--including Homer, Plato, Aristophanes, and Euripides--and illustrating general points with passages from their work in translation. It pays attention to unfamiliar components of Greek life and literature and also considers those elements that have appealed most powerfully to succeeding generations. Although it recognizes that this appeal lies above all in the most creative and inventive period (700-300 BC), the book also gives an account of the following eight hundred years, which saw the impact of earlier inspirations. Poetry, tragedy, comedy, history, science, philosophy, and oratory are all examined through the available literature. The second edition has been revised to take account of recent scholarship, such as the influence of oriental traditions of Greek literature, and includes several new translations and a thoroughly updated bibliography.

Buchbeschreibung OXFORD UNIV PR Dez 1997, 1997. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. Neuware - This historical survey of Greek literature from 700 BC to 550 AD concentrates on the principal authors and quotes many passages from their work in translation, to allow the reader to form his own impression of its quality, including Homer, Plato, Aristophanes, and Euripides. Attention is drawn both to the elements in Greek literature and attitudes to life which are unfamiliar to us, and to the elements which appeal most powerfully to succeeding generations. Although it is recognized that this appeal lies above all in the most creative and inventive period (700-300 BC), an account is given of the eight hundred years which followed, which saw the impact of earlier inspirations. Poetry, tragedy, comedy, history, science, philosophy, and oratory are all examined through the available literature. This new edition has been revised to take account of recent scholarship, such as the influence of oriental traditions of Greek literature, and includes several new translations and a thoroughly updated bibliography. 208 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780192892942
