Paideia at Play: Learning and Wit in Apuleius

Paideia at Play: Learning and Wit in Apuleius

Book

Author: Werner Riess (ed.)

ISBN-13: 9789077922415

Publication year: 2008

The idea of education and learning (paideia) was central to ancient Greek thought.  The Latin orator and author Apuleius of Madauros adapted the Greek concept of paideia and conveyed it to a Latin audience in his main works, the only extant Latin court speech of the Roman Empire (the Apology) and the only Latin novel that is completely preserved, the Metamorphoses. The contributors to this volume have undertaken the task of discerning the specific forms of paideia and its varying functions in both works.

There have been many studies of the uses which the ancient Greek and Roman novelists made of earlier literature, particularly epic, theatre and history. However, the relation of the novels to ancient philosophy remains under-studied. This volume is intended to open up some of the issues involved.

Splendide Mendax

Splendide Mendax

Book

Author: Edmund P. Cueva and Javier Martínez (Eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789491431982

Publication year: 2016

Many new and fruitful avenues of investigation open up when scholars consider forgery as a creative act rather than a crime. We invited authors to contribute work without imposing any restrictions beyond a willingness to consider new approaches to the subject of ancient fakes and forgeries. The result is this volume, in which our aim is to display some of the many possibilities available to scholarship when the forger is regarded as "splendide mendax" - splendidly untruthful.

The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

The Alexander Romance in Persia and the East

Book

Author: Richard Stoneman, Kyle Erickson and Ian Netton (eds.)

ISBN-13: 9789491431043

Publication year: 2012

The story of Alexander became the subject of legend in the medieval west, but was perhaps even more pervasive in the east. The Alexander Romance was translated into Syriac in the sixth century and may have become current in Persia as early as the third century AD. From these beginnings it reached into the Persian national epic, the Shahnameh, into Jewish traditions, and into the Qur’an and subsequent Arab romance. The papers in this volume all have the aim of deepening our understanding of this complex development.

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

The Ancient Novel and the Frontiers of Genre

Book

Author: Marília P. Futre Pinheiro, Gareth Schmeling, Edmund P. Cueva

ISBN-13: 9789491431661

Despite the fact that postmodern aesthetics deny the existence or validity of genres, the tendency nowadays is to assume that there was in Antiquity a homogeneous group of works of narrative prose fiction that, despite their differences, displayed a series of recurrent, iterative, thematic, and formal characteristics, which allows us to label them novels. The papers assembled in this volume include extended prose narratives of all kind and thereby widen and enrich the scope of the canon.
