New comparative grammar of Greek and Latin
Sihler, Andrew L
New York : Oxford University Press, 1995
pt. I. Introduction --The Indo-European family of languages 1-11 -- Greek 12-5 -- Latin and the italic languages 16-21 -- The Greek and Latin signaries 22-7 -- Notes on citation and transcription 28-35 -- pt. II. Phonology -- Vowels and diphthongs 36-129 -- Short vowels in initial syllables 36-48 -- Long vowels and vowel + laryngeal 49-56. Diphthongs (initial syllables) 57-64 -- Vowels in medial and final syllables in Latin 65-75 -- Phonetics of long and short vowels 76-8 -- Lengthening and shortening of vowels in Greek 79 -- Syncope in Greek 80 -- Lengthening of vowels in Latin 81 -- Shortening of vowels in Latin 82-5 -- Contraction of vowels in Greek 86-7 -- Contraction of vowels in Latin 88 -- Prothetic vowels in Greek 89-90 -- Vowel assimilation in Greek 91 -- Anaptyxis in Latin 92 -- Syllabic consonants 93-109 -- Vowel gradation -- ablaut 110-29 -- Disyllabic roots 121-3 -- Reduced grades 124 -- Conditions and causes of PIE ablaut 125 -- Lengthened grades 126 -- Distribution of PIE ablaut grades 127-9 -- Consonants 130-241.

Like Carl Darling Buck's once standard Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latin (1933), this book is an explanation of the similarities and differences between Greek and Latin morphology and lexicon through an account of their prehistory. In addition, Andrew Sihler discusses the principal features of Indo-European linguistics. Incorporating the considerable scholarship of the sixty years since Buck's edition appeared, this thoroughly new and up-to-date study fully integrates laryngeals in both the phonology and morphology, and the Indo-European verb system is presented in terms radically unlike Buck's.

The arts of editing medieval Greek and Latin : a casebook
edited by Elisabet Göransson, Gunilla Iversen, Barbara Crostini, Brian M. Jensen, Erika Kihlman, Eva Odelman, and Denis Searby
Toronto, Ontario, Canada : Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies, [2016]
"The Arts of Editing Medieval Greek and Latin: A Casebook is a collection of 18 case studies aimed at giving readers a chance to follow textual scholars as they tackle the kind of editorial challenges not normally discussed in manuals on textual criticism. The authors delve into methodological issues that include producing single-manuscript editions or those involving huge numbers of witnesses, editing different versions of the same author's text or anthologies of different authors, capturing stages of textual genesis, dealing with textual variability, relating text and image, utilizing digital tools, and more. They outline the challenges in the given editorial situation and explain the methodologies adopted in the editing process. The case studies are compared and contrasted in a concluding chapter that offers reflections on the editor's role and strategies. Without being prescriptive in the style of handbooks on textual philology, this book offers specific examples of the use to which the various tools in the editor's toolbag may be put in confronting unique editorial situations."--

Literary history in the Parian Marble
Rotstein, Andrea, author
Washington, DC : Center for Hellenic Studies, Trustees for Harvard University, 2016
The Parian Marble -- Text and translation -- The genre of the Parian Marble -- The Parian Marble as a literary text -- Time in the Parian Marble -- Literary history in the Parian Marble -- Final words

Inscribed some time after 264 BCE, the Parian Marble offers a chronological list of events with an exceptional emphasis on literary matters. 'Literary History in the Parian Marble' explores the literary and historiographical qualities of the inscription, the genre to which it belongs, and the emerging patterns of time. Endorsing the hypothesis that the inscription was originally displayed at a Parian shrine honoring Archilochus, Andrea Rotstein argues that literary history was one of its main concerns. Though it may be conventional in its focus on the chronology of poets, their inventions and victories, the Parian Marble is nonetheless idiosyncratic in the range of authors displayed. By reconstructing the methods by which information might have been obtained, Rotstein contributes to an understanding of the way literary history was practiced within the local communities of ancient Greece, away from the major Hellenistic centers of scholarship. The Parian chronicle has not been the subject of a comprehensive study for almost a century. 'Literary History in the Parian Marble' brings to the English-speaking audience up-to-date information about the inscription, including a revision of Jacoby's Greek text and a complete translation.

Studies on the text of Suetonius' 'De Uita Caesarum'
Kaster, Robert A., author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2016
The transmission of Suetonius' Ceasars in the Middle Ages -- Suetoniana.

"Studies on the Text of Suetonius' De uita Caesarum is a companion volume to the critical edition of Suetonius' Lives of the Caesars in the Oxford Classical Texts series, edited by Robert Kaster. It provides detailed insight into the research and textual analysis behind the edition. Part I presents the first comprehensive and accurate account of the medieval manuscript tradition (ninth to thirteenth centuries) on which the Oxford Classical Text is based, and Part II analyses hundreds of passages where a variety of textual problems are encountered, often offering new solutions. Four appendices provide additional support to the arguments of Part I, while a fifth lists all the places (just over 300) where the new text differs from the edition by Maximilian Ihm that has been the standard since 1907."

Practicing Roman declamation : The rhetoric of pedagogy -- A student speaks for social equality in the Roman classroom (Quintilian, Declamationes Minores 260) / Anthony Corbeill -- The hidden teacher : 'Metarhetoric' in Ps.-Quintilian's Major Declamations / Antonio Stramaglia -- II.

Dinter -- III. Perusing Roman declamation : Genre and intertext -- Noverca et mater crudelis : La perversion féminine dans les Grandes Déclamations à travers l'intertextualité / Julien Pingoud et Alessandra Rolle -- La medicina nelle Declamazioni maggiori pseudo-quintilianee / Giovarma Longo -- IV. Contextualizing Roman declamation : Ethics and politics -- Imaginative fiction beyond social and moral norms / Joy Connolly -- Civitas Beluarum: The politics of eating your neighbor : A semiological study of Ps. Quintilian's twelfth Major Declamation / Orazio Cappello -- The stepmother, the foisted poison and the changed will : Some preliminaries for pseudo-Quintilian, Decl. Mai. 2 and pseudo-Libanius, Decl. 49 / Gernot Krapinger -- Omnibus patemus insidiis : elite vulnerability in Major Declamations 11 / Neil W. Bernstein -- Tyrans et tyrannicides dans les Petites déclamations / Pablo Schwartz.

As a genre situated at the crossroad of rhetoric and fiction, declamatio offers the freedom to experiment with new forms of discourse. Placing the literariness of Quintillian's oeuvre into the spotlight, this volume showcases declamation as a realm of genuine literary creation with its own theoretical underpinning, literary technique and generic conventions. It is of interest to students and scholars of rhetoric and Roman Literature.

"The political allegiances of major Roman poets have been notoriously difficult to pin down, in part because they often shift the onus of political interpretation from themselves to their readers. By the same token, it is often difficult to assess their authorial powerplays in the etymologies, puns, anagrams, telestichs, and acronyms that feature prominently in their poetry. It is the premise of this volume that the contexts of composition, performance, and reception play a critical role in constructing poetic voices as either politically favorable or dissenting, and however much the individual scholars in this volume disagree among themselves, their readings try to do justice collectively to poetry's power to shape political realities. The book is aimed not only at scholars of Roman poetry, politics, and philosophy, but also at those working in later literary and political traditions influenced by Rome's greatest poets."--Publisher's description.

Greek fragments in postmodern frames : rewriting tragedy 1970-2005
Ioannidou, Eleftheria, author
Oxford ; Oxford University Press, 2017
Greek Fragments in Postmodern Frames' takes as its subject adaptation of Greek tragedy in the last decades, arguing that rewritings of Greek tragic texts in this period can be used as a tool to uncover a significant dialogue with postmodernism. Despite the large number of staged and written adaptations of Greek tragic texts in recent years, the idea still persists that tragedy is incompatible with postmodernism, with the long-standing debate over the demise of the genre in the modern era undergoing a recent resurgence with the claim that postmodernism precludes tragedy both as an aesthetic form and as a way of perceiving the world. This volume focuses on the adaptation of Greek tragedy between 1970 and 2005 and explores a wide range of adaptations from a variety of different countries: the plays under discussion are characterized by an extended intertextual engagement with their prototype texts - instead of simply adapting the Greek myth, they rewrite the classical text in ways akin to the renegotiation of authorship and textuality proffered by poststructuralist thought.
