About this Item: Condition: Antiquarian. Brill, Leiden, 1980. 209p. Sewn. Series: Textus Minores, Vol.LIV. ?Justus Lipsius? ?Somnium? (1581) and Petrus Cunaeus? ?Sardi Venales? (1612), have not been edited since Georg Christoph Winter?s 1720 edition (?). This modern edition is therefore especially welcome. Its informative introduction, summarising the works and setting them in historical context, and the editors? copious citations of the classical authors quotes should help readers unfamiliar with these later imitations of Seneca. Both Lipsius and his imitator, Cunaeus, employ the dream convention to frame their attacks on contemporary philologians (and, in the ?Sardi venues?, theologians). Lipsius attends a meeting of the Roman Senate presided over by Cicero who, with Sallust and Ovid, conducts the prosecution. Lipsius skilfully adapts large portions of Cicero?s and Sallust?s writing to his satiric purpose but, since he can hardly use Ovid so directly, he instead evokes his style and emotion. Lipsius? range of quotation, in fact, is truly astonishing; he cites or paraphrases from every major classical author and several lesser known critics such as Festus and Nonius. Cunaeus also quotes widely from classical sources but he does not attempt to reproduce any author?s style. His spokesmen against the new philologians are the older generation of Politician, Hermolaus Barbarus, and Rudolphus Agricola. Their viewpoint is decidedly more elitist; they imply that the vanity and stupidity of younger philologians stems from their inferior social status. Cunaeus also satirises theologians, but his complaints, while undoubtedly controversial at the time, seem tame today. Nevertheless, in a time of declining interest in classical philology it is comforting to realise that men like Cunaeus and Lipsius cared deeply enough about the classics to vent their feelings in satire. Two sets of indices nominum et locorum and a brief bibliography for each work are included in this edition.? (CYNTHIA DESSEN in Renaissance Quarterly, 1981, pp.394-395). Antiquarian.
