Dealer: ZVAB, Scrinium Classical Antiquity
Description: ISBN10: 0520207157, ISBN13: 9780520207158, [publisher: University of California Press] Hardcover University of California Press, Berkeley (.), 1996. X,226p. Half cloth with dust wrps. Dust wrps inside creased. Nice copy. 'The six chapters of this elegant volume, finely translated by Elaine Fantham, form a revised version of the distinguished Sather Classical Lectures which C. delivered at the University of California in 1995, and deal with the narrative technique of Petronius' controversial novel and its intended effect on the reader. This is the third book on the 'Satyrica' to appear in the 1990s, and like one of its predecessors, Niall Slater's ground-breaking 'Reading Petronius' (Baltimore, 1990), it follows the thread of the Petronian narrative with the help of an original theoretical model, and combines tradition scholarship (.) with a thorough knowledge of modern critical approaches to an ancient text. The result is a highly rewarding, though not always easy to read, assessment of the novel as a whole.' (COSTAS PANAYOTAKIS in The Classical Review (New Series), 1998, p.56).

9. THE HIDDEN AUTHOR An Interpretation of Petronius's Satyricon
by Conte Gian Biagio 
Price: USD 50.96
Dealer: Biblio, Ancient World Books
Description: University of California Press. Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. Date: 1997. Hardcover. 0520207157 . Paperclip indent to first 2 pages. Else book is fine. DJ has very minor shelfwear. ; The Satyricon of Petronius, a comic novel written in the first century A. D. , is famous today primarily for its amazing banquet tale, "Trimalchio's Feast." But this episode is only one part of the larger picture of life during Nero's rule presented in the work. In this accessible discussion of Petronius's masterful use of parody, Gian Biagio Conte offers an interpretation of the Satyricon as a whole. He combines the scholarly precision of close reading with a significant, original theoretical model. At the heart of his interpretation, Conte reveals the technique of the "hidden author" that Petronius employs at the expense of his characters, in particular the teller of the story, Enclopius. By remaining hidden outside the narrative, Petronius invites the reader to smile at the folies de grandeur that occur in a culture of scholars and declaimers. Yet as Conte shows, behind the parody and inexhaustible humor of the Satyricon lies an unexpectedly serious lament. For those familiar with the Satyricon, as well as for new readers, Conte's book will be a reliable, enjoyable guide to the wonders the Satyricon contains. ; Sather Classical Lectures 60; 224 pages . 1997.
