Book Description Cambridge Uniersity Press, Cambridge, 1989. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. First Edition. xiii, 264pp, 16pp of b/w plates, index. EX-LIBRARY copy with library stamp by the lower edge of the title page and on the upper-, lower-, and fore-edges, with bar code, sticker and date label (unstamped) on the verso of the rear flyleaf. The upper page edge also has a cancelled stamp. Papered boards, with traces of reference number sticker by the spine foot, title label at the spine. The ten essays explore the ways in which Hellenism was continuously rediscovered in the later 18th and in the 19th centuries, and the shifting ground which society chose to define for itself as essential of Hellenism. The focus of the chapters is on cultural preoccupations and productions rather than on political movements and theories. The essays: David Constantine, The question of authenticity in some early accounts of Greece; Penelope Wilson, 'High Pindaricks upon stilts': a case study in the 18th-century classical tradition; J Mordaunt Crook, The Arcadian vision: neo-classicism and the Picturesque; Frank M Turner, Why the Greeks and not the Romans in Victorian Britain; Richard Jenkyns, Hellenism in Victorian painting; Peter Tomory, The fortunes of Sappho: 1770-1850; Stephen Prickett, 'Hebrew' versus 'Hellene' as a principle of literary criticism; Bowen, James, Education, ideology and the ruling class: Hellenism and English public schools in the 19th century; Peter Connor, Cast collecting in the 19th century: scholrship, aesthetics, connoisseurship; and Antony Stephens, Socrates or chorus person? The problem of individuality in Nietzsche's Hellenism. Size: 8vo. Ex-Library. Bookseller Inventory # 020920
