Review:

"...essays in this volume-such as those on Seneca, Tacitus, Statius, and Roman rhetoric-...open up some valuable perspectives on the Aeneid . Karl Galinsky, Vergilius

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Essays by an international team of scholars in Latin literature and ancient philosophy explore the understanding of emotions (or passions ) in Roman thought and literature. Building on work on Hellenistic theories of emotion and on philosophy as therapy, they look closely at the interface between ancient philosophy (especially Stoic and Epicurean), rhetorical theory, conventional Roman thinking and literary portrayal. There are searching studies of the emotional thought-world of a range of writers including Catullus, Cicero, Virgil, Seneca, Statius, Tacitus and Juvenal. Issues of debate such as the ethical colour of Aeneas s angry killing of Turnus at the end of the Aeneid are placed in a broad and illuminating perspective. Written in clear and non-technical language, with Greek and Latin translated, the volume opens up a fascinating area on the borders of philosophy and literature. Seller Inventory # APC9780521473910
