This book argues that feet and phrases, to the extent that they exist at all in Greek lyric verse, tend to be present at the level of parole rather than langue—constituting one of a number of possible ways of articulating some larger rhythmical continuum. These larger rhythmical structures are the minimal independent utterances in lyric discourse.
The topics offered in East and West range throughout the ancient world from the second century bce to late antiquity, from Hellenistic Greece and Republican Rome to Egypt and Arabia, from the Second Sophistic to Roman imperial discourse, from Sulla’s self-presentation in his memoirs to charitable giving among the Manichaeans in Egypt.
Christopher P. Jones offers here the first full-length portrait of Dio in English and, at the same time, a view of life in cities such as Alexandria, Tarsus, and Rhodes in the first centuries of our era.
Images for Classicists shows how text and image taken together complicate and enrich our understanding of ancient culture. Working to dissolve distinctions between text- and artifact-based scholarship, it explores challenges the digital revolution poses to curators and sketches ways that image-based collections may be deployed in the future.
Based on a Harvard Art Museums symposium on the acquisition of Margarete Bieber’s coin collection, Sculpture and Coins addresses the relation between large statuary and miniature art in the private and public domain. Scholars from various disciplines explain the importance of coins for identifying and analyzing Greek and Roman portraiture.
Albert’s Anthology comprises 76 brief and informal reflections on a line or two of Greek or Latin poetry—and a few prose quotations and artistic objects—composed by colleagues and students of Albert Henrichs, who devoted his scholarly career to Greek literature and religion—especially his favorite Greek god, Dionysos.
The papers collected in The Loeb Classical Library and Its Progeny explore the legacy for which James Loeb is best known—the Loeb Classical Library—and the three series it inspired, and take stock of these series in light of more general themes bearing on translations of “classical” texts and their audiences.
The Lives of Latin Texts collects papers presented at a 2018 conference in the Department of the Classics at Harvard University in honor of Richard Tarrant on the occasion of his retirement. The breadth of authors, genres, periods, and topics is testament to Tarrant’s influence on the fields of Latin literary studies and textual criticism.
The second James Loeb Biennial Conference focused on his multifaceted engagement with the material culture of the ancient world as a scholar, connoisseur, collector, and curator. The resulting essays also reflect on Loeb’s contemporary significance, as his collections continue to be curated and studied in today’s rapidly evolving arts environment.
