Product Description

A stunning revelation of the breadth of Greek and Latin literature in one glorious volume, from an admired young classicist.Covers the full range of literary genres, from epic poetry to natural history and from satire to travel writing.A captivating mixture of the familiar and the esoteric.MARKET: Mary Beard; Tom Holland.Daisy Dunn read Classics at Oxford, before winning a scholarship to the Courtauld and completing a doctorate in Classics and History of Art at University College London. She writes and reviews for many publications, including the Daily Telegraph, Evening Standard and Standpoint, and is editor of Argo, a Greek culture magazine.

She is the author of Catullus' Bedspread and an accompanying volume of the poems in translation, The Poems of Catullus.A rigorously and imaginatively researched anthology of classical literature, bringing together one hundred stories from the rich diversity of the literary canon of ancient Greece and Rome. Striking a balance between the 'classic classic' (such as Dryden's translation of the Aeneid) and the less familiar or expected, Of Gods and Men ranges from the epic poetry of Homer to the histories of Arrian and Diodorus Siculus and the sprawling Theogony of Hesiod; from the tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides to the biographies of Suetonius and Plutarch and the pen portraits of Theophrastus; and from the comedies of Plautus to the fictions of Petronius and Apuleius. Of Gods and Men is embellished by translations from writers as diverse as Queen Elizabeth I (Boethius), Percy Bysshe Shelley (Plato), Walter Pater (Apuleius's Golden Ass), Lawrence of Arabia (Homer's Odyssey), Louis MacNeice (Aeschylus's Agamemnon) and Ted Hughes (Ovid's Pygmalion), as well as a number of accomplished translations by Daisy Dunn herself.A rigorously and imaginatively researched anthology of classical literature, bringing together one hundred stories from the rich diversity of the literary canon of ancient Greece and Rome.Daisy Dunn read Classics at Oxford, before winning a scholarship to the Courtauld and completing a doctorate in Classics and History of Art at University College London.
