Pro Marco Caelio is perhaps Cicero's best-loved speech and has long been regarded as one of the best surviving examples of Roman oratory. Speaking in defence of the young aristocrat Marcus Caelius Rufus on charges of political violence, Cicero scores his points with wit but also with searing invective directed at a supporter of the prosecution, Clodia Metelli, whom he represents as seeking vengeance as a lover spurned by his client. This new edition and detailed commentary offers advanced undergraduates and graduate students, as well as scholars, a detailed analysis of Cicero's rhetorical strategies and stylistic refinements and presents a systematic account of the background and significance of the speech, including in-depth explanations of Roman court proceedings.

Juvenal, writing between AD 110 and 130, was one of the greatest satirists of Imperial Rome. His powerful and witty attacks on the vices, abuses, and follies of the big city have been admired and used by many English writers, including Ben Jonson, Dryden, and most notably, Dr Johnson, who described his writing as `a mixture of gaiety and statelines, of pointed sentences and declamatory grandeur'. Juvenal has been seen as a stern moralist and, more recently, as an extravagant wit, and is acclaimed for his vivid description of the scenes which aroused his anger. He coined the famous phrase designating people `eager and anxious for two things; bread and races' (panem et circenses'). Niall Rudd's translation reproduces the original style and metrical effect of Juvenal's hexameters. William Barr's Introduction and Notes provide literary and historical background to the sixteen satires.

English summary: This book uses modern methods of adult education in the field of historical linguistics. It presents a variety of tasks, easy-to-understand exercises and work instructions as well as clear tables and precise descriptions of the development of the Attic language. Step by step the user is introduced deeper into the complicated developments of the Attic language. By applying the structures of language development over and over again the user learns the matter by doing it. The exercises, in which Attics word are deduced from their Indo-European pre-forms, are structured as puzzles that must be solved. The single-step method allows the user to analyze each derivation step exactly as a number always refers to an index of all the Greek sound laws which can be found at the end of the book. In each teaching unit the left page contains the explanations and descriptions of Latin sound laws and the right page offers exercises to train the learning matter. Sound laws, which are explained in other units, are additionally given on the exercise pages. Answers to all the exercises are included in the book. The comprehensive index includes all Greek sound laws and is referred to in every step of a phonological derivation as well as in all the explanations. The index can be used for reference as well. The structure of the book is intentionally identical to the "Latin Historical Phonology Workbook" which is also published in the Reichert Verlag. In this way, not only the parallelism of many developments can be compared with each other at first glance but the user can start working with the book directly without having to deal with any new types of tasks. The book is suitable for use in university courses but can easily be used for self-study as well based on the existing solutions in the book. The language is plain, intelligible and presents complex developments in a simple way so that non-specialists can work with the book. Previous knowledge of Greek is not needed due to the introduction in which the Greek alphabet, the basics of phonology and a theoretical model of language development are presented. German description: Dieses Buch setzt moderne Methoden der Erwachsenenbildung im Bereich der historischen Sprachforschung einzusetzen. Mit einer Vielzahl von Aufgaben, verstandlich gestalteten Ubungen und Arbeitsanweisungen, ubersichtlichen Tabellen und prazisen Beschreibungen bildet der Benutzer die Entwicklung einer der wichtigsten Sprachen der abendlandischen Kultur nach. Schritt fur Schritt wird der Benutzer tiefer in die zum Teil komplizierten Entwicklungen des Attischen eingefuhrt. Durch wiederholtes eigenes Anwenden schleifen sich die Strukturen der Sprachentwicklung quasi spielerisch bei den Benutzern ein. Die Ubungen sind dabei wie Ratsel aufgebaut, die es zu losen gilt. Dabei muss stets die Ableitung eines attischen Wortes vom Urindogermanischen her geleistet werden. Die verwendete Einzelschrittmethode erlaubt es dem Benutzer, jeden Ableitungsschritt genau nachzuvollziehen, da stets eine Nummer auf einen Index aller griechischen Lautgesetze verweist. Die Kapitel bestehen aus einer linken Erklarungsseite, auf der in kurzen Abschnitten der Lehrstoff besprochen wird, und einer rechten Ubungsseite, um die besprochenen phonologischen Prozesse anzuwenden. Lautwandelprozesse, die nicht unmittelbar im Kapitel besprochen werden, sind erganzend auf den Ubungsseiten angegeben. Die Losungen der Ubungen sind ebenfalls im Buch enthalten. Der umfangreiche Index griechischer Lautgesetze kann ebenfalls zum Nachschlagen genutzt werden. Der Aufbau des Buches ist absichtlich vollig identisch mit dem Buch "Arbeitsbuch zu lateinischen historischen Phonologie", das ebenfalls im Reichert Verlag erschienen ist. Auf diese Weise lasst sich nicht nur die Parallelitat vieler Entwicklungen auf den ersten Blick miteinander vergleichen, sondern der Benutzer kann direkt an die Arbeit gehen, ohne sich lang mit neuen Aufgabentypen auseinandersetzen zu mussen. Das Buch eignet sich nicht nur zum Einsatz in Universitatskursen, sondern kann aufgrund der im Buch vorhandenen Losungen problemlos zum Selbststudium genutzt werden. Die Sprache ist klar und verstandlich geschrieben und stellt komplexe Entwicklungen auf einfache Weise dar, damit auch fachfremde Personen mit dem Buch arbeiten konnen. Es werden keine Kenntnisse vorausgesetzt, da zu Beginn ebenfalls das griechische Alphabet, die Grundlagen der Phonologie sowie ein theoretisches Modell der Sprachentwicklung zu finden sind.

Latin Erotic Elegy

This indispensable volume provides a complete course on Latin erotic elegy, allowing students to trace a coherent narrative of the genre's rise and fall, and to understand its relationship to the changes that marked the collapse of the Roman republic, and the founding of the empire. The book begins with a detailed and wide-ranging introduction, looking at major figures, the evolution of the form, and the Roman context, with particular focus on the changing relations between the sexes. The texts that follow range from the earliest manifestations of erotic elegy, in Catullus, through Tibullus, Sulpicia (Rome's only female elegist), Propertius and Ovid. An accessible commentary explores the historical background, issues of language and style, and the relation of each piece to its author's larger body of work. The volume closes with an anthology of critical essays representative of the main trends in scholarship; these both illuminate the genre's most salient features and help the student understand its modern reception.

Cicero s De Provinciis Consularibus Oratio

Perhaps no other single Roman speech exemplifies the connection between oratory, politics and imperialism better than Cicero's De Provinciis Consularibus, pronounced to the senate in 56 BC. Cicero puts his talents at the service of the powerful "triumviri" (Caesar, Crassus and Pompey), whose aims he advances by appealing to the senators' imperialistic and chauvinistic ideology. This oration, then, yields precious insights into several areas of late republican life: international relations between Rome and the provinces (Gaul, Macedonia and Judaea); the senators' view on governors, publicani (tax-farmers) and foreigners; the dirty mechanics of high politics in the 50s, driven by lust for domination and money; and Cicero's own role in that political choreography. This speech also exemplifies the exceptional range of Cicero's oratory: the invective against Piso and Gabinius calls for biting irony, the praise of Caesar displays high rhetoric, the rejection of other senators' recommendations is a tour de force of logical and sophisticated argument, and Cicero's justification for his own conduct is embedded in the self-fashioning narrative which is typical of his post reditum speeches. This new commentary includes an updated introduction, which provides the readers with a historical, rhetorical and stylistic background to appreciate the complexities of Cicero's oration, as well as indexes and maps.

For nearly sixty years, Wheelock's Latin has remained the opitmus liber of beginning Latin textbooks. When Professor Frederic M. Wheelock's Latin first appeared in 1956, the reviews extolled its thoroughness, organization, and conciseness; one reviewer predicted that the book "might well become the standard text" for introducing students to elementary Latin. Now, nearly six decades later, that prediction has certainly proved accurate. This new edition of Wheelock's Latin has all of the features, many of them improved and expanded, that have made it the bestselling single-volume beginning Latin textbook: 40 chapters with grammatical explanations and readings drawn from the works of Rome's major prose and verse writers; Self-tutorial exercises, each with an answer key, for independent study; An extensive English–Latin/Latin–English vocabulary section; A rich selection of original Latin readings—unlike other Latin textbooks, which contain primarily made-up texts; Etymological aids, maps, and dozens of images illustrating aspects of the classical culture and mythology presented in the chapter readings. Also included are expanded notes on the literary passages, comments on vocabulary, and translation tips; new comprehension and discussion questions; and new authentic classical Latin readings, including Roman graffiti, in every chapter.

Roman Political Thought

Roman Political Thought is the first comprehensive treatment of the political thought of the Romans. Dean Hammer argues that the Romans were engaged in a wide-ranging and penetrating reflection on politics. The Romans did not create utopias. Instead, their thinking was relentlessly shaped by their own experiences of violence, the enormity and frailty of power, and an overwhelming sense of loss of the traditions that oriented them to their responsibilities as social, political, and moral beings. However much the Romans are known for their often complex legal and institutional arrangements, the power of their political thought lies in their exploration of the extra-institutional, affective foundations of political life. The book includes chapters on Cicero, Lucretius, Sallust, Virgil, Livy, Seneca, Tacitus, Marcus Aurelius, and Augustine and discussions of Polybius, the Stoics, Epicurus, and Epictetus.
