Aus der Bibliothek von Prof. Wolfgang Haase, langjährigem Herausgeber der ANRW und des International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT) / From the library of Prof. Wolfgang Haase, long-time editor of ANRW and the International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT). - Zustand: Farbabdrücke auf Vorsatz. Minimal beriebener Schutzumschlag. Ansonsten im sehr guten Zustand. / Condition: Color impressions on endpapers. Minimally rubbed dust jacket. Otherwise in very good condition. - Content: The chapters of this book were conceived as lectures and delivered as the Sather Lectures at Berkeley in the spring quarter of 1982. I have revised all six for publication, I, V, and VI extensively, and added notes and appendixes; I have not, however, attempted to change their original character, and something of the lecturer’s tone and manner no doubt remains. It was impressed upon me by the then Chairman of the Classics Department, John Dillon, when I received the invitation to give these lectures, and again later, and somewhat more firmly, by his successor, Charles Murgia, that they should be intelligible to a literate general audience. Taking their advice to heart, I provided translations of the passages of Greek and Latin I quoted and confined scholarly argument to the notes and appendixes. The translations are my own, although in a very few places I have borrowed a word or phrase from another translator. For the most part I have chosen to present my own opinions without dissecting or criticizing the opinions of others—on the shield of Aeneas, for instance, or on the final scene of the poem. I have, however, occasionally criticized recent commentators for their neglect of Hellenistic poetry, since those using a commentary will naturally assume that it contains what is necessary for an understanding and appreciation of the text. From this prejudice against Hellenistic poetry Virgil’s earlier commentators and readers were happily free; for them (as for Virgil) there was no discontinuity in Greek poetry, for them Callimachus was a poet comparable with Pindar. Thus Milton, The Reason of Church Government-. "Or if occasion shall lead to imitate those magnifick Odes and Hymns wherein Pindarus and Callimachus are in most things worthy." It will be objected, I suppose, that I have turned Virgil into a Hellenistic poet while disregarding other aspects of his poetry. Any new or strong emphasis almost inevitably involves some distortion. But Virgil was a Hellenistic poet, a poet educated and writing in that tradition. Of course he was widely read in earlier Greek poetry; so too were the Hellenistic poets. Of course the main reference of the Aeneid is to Homer, but Virgil imitates Homer (whatever the deeper resonance of his own poetry) as a Hellenistic poet would, as Apollonius did. Virgil may be described as a New Poet of the second generation, with a literary technique, and hence a literary sensibility, formed by a close and unremitting study of the Hellenistic poets and their Roman descendants, the New Poets of the first generation. When I recall Berkeley and my pleasing anxious existence there as Sather Professor I am conscious of a sense of gratitude to more people than I can possibly thank for their abundant hospitality. I am particularly grateful to Anthony Bulloch, Charles Murgia, Thomas Ro-senmeyer, and Danuta Shanzer, and to my Sather assistant Stephen White. I owe a debt of gratitude also to two of my colleagues at Harvard, David Mitten and Emily Vermeule, and to Henry Rosovsky, then Dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences; to my former colleague Richard Thomas; to Lorna Holmes, Lenore Savage, Ann Hawthorne, and Norbert Lain; and to Doris Kretschmer and Mary Lamprech of the University of California Press. My chief and abiding debt is recorded more prominently elsewhere. ISBN 9780520057913 Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 455 Original hardcover with dust jacket.
