3. Life and literature in the Roman Republic.
by Frank, Tenney: 
Price: USD 10.00
Dealer: ZVAB, Fundus-Online GbR Borkert Schwarz Zerfaß
Description: [publisher: Berkely: University of California Press] Softcover 250 p. From the library of Prof. Wolfgang Haase, long-time editor of ANRW and the International Journal of the Classical Tradition (IJCT). - Rubbed as well as scuffed binding, otherwise in very good condition due to age. - Content: Although the innate endowment of a writer is the first factor in creative expression, we must understand something of the milieu in which he lived. The customs, traditions, needs, and conventions which evoke a particular expression from any writer must be known if we are to gain a full appreciation of his work. And, indeed, this is true for the great men who evolved the distinctive Latin forms that were destined to exercise profound influences on Western culture. Roman literature of the republic was experimental and reveals diverse tendencies, but it always reflects some phase of Roman life. A distinguished classical scholar, Tenney Frank, here shows us Plautus and Terence the dramatists, Cato and Cicero the statesmen-orators, Livy the historian, Lucretius the poet, and others, living and writing in Rome. These men, from different strata of society, from different localities, set down their individual tesponses to their own distinctive experiences of life in the republic. Their writings have come down to us never conformist nor monotonous, neither Greek nor classical in spirit. Their work came out of a society and out of a way of life in a young world. The late Tenney Frank, editor of An Economic History of Ancient Rome, author of Roman Imperialism, A History of Rome, and many other books, was Professor of Latin at Johns Hopkins University. The present volume comprises the seventh Sather Classical Lecture delivered at the University of California. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 550 [Berlin, Germany] [Publication Year: 1930]
