9780198661030: Oxford Companion to Classical Literature

A comprehensive classical dictionary with a literary emphasis. Invaluable aide-m moire for those classical allusions which, with the passing of time, scuttle away to the cobwebby corners of the mind.' The Sunday Telegraph .

About the Author:


M.C. Howatson is Fellow of St. Anne's College, Oxford, and University Lecturer in Classical Languages in the University of Oxford.

From Library Journal:

This opulent companion offers the general reader help of every kind in the understanding of classical literature. More than a handbook of authors and titles, the guide illumines the faded images of mythological and historical figures, as well as providing articles on general topics: e.g., genre, theater, politics, religion, the transmission of texts through the Renaissance, and such intimate mysteries as meter. This extensively redesigned second edition, assuming no prior knowledge of ancient languages, greatly expands upon and brings up to date Paul Harvey's popular original volume, published in 1937. This edition should enjoy its own quinquagenial (or 50th) anniversary.
