Book Description Duckworth & Co / Classical Press of Wales, London, 1998. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Contributors: Elaine Fantham, Don Fowler, Reinhold F. Glei, Gunther Gottlieb, Philip Hardie, Stephen Harrison, Egil Kraggerud, Eckard Lefevre, Alexander G. McKay, Llewelyn Morgan, Anton Powell, Hans-Peter Stahl, Richard F. Thomas, David West. Dust jacket complete. Brown cloth with bright gilt titling on spine. Previous owner's name on ffep. xxxiii, 324 pages clean and tight. The Aeneid may be considered a test case for diverging modern methods of criticism. Does the epic stand for the subordination of the individual in a hierarchically structured state, or is there below the imperial surface a cross-current of wider human appeal? Does the poet skilfully channel his readers' sympathies in directions helpful to the political authorities of his time, or did he devise human messages which are all-embracing and non-partisan? Is it misguided even to seek to discover intentions of the poet in his work? The contributors to this volume were chosen both for their scholarship and as representing diverse critical methods. Each has selected a passage of the Aeneid to demonstrate his or her general approach. The examination of political references is to the fore. And each contributor uses their chosen passage to address the question of the Aeneid's message. Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 126452
