The epic of Juan Latino : dilemmas of race and religion in Renaissance Spain
Wright, Elizabeth R., 1963- author
London : University of Toronto Press, [2016]
Introduction: A lost portrait and a forgotten name -- Part One. From slave to freedman in Granada -- 1. Latin lessons amid the remnants of Al-Andalus -- 2. Civil war, shattered convivencia -- Part Two. The epic of Lepanto -- 3. A black poet and a Habsburg phoenix -- 4. Christians and Muslims on the battle lines -- 5. The costs of modern warfare -- Conclusion: Song of the black swan -- Epilogue: Juan Latino in the Harlem Renaissance.

"In The Epic of Juan Latino, Elizabeth R. Wright tells the story of Renaissance Europe's first black poet and his epic poem on the naval battle of Lepanto, Austrias Carmen (The Song of John of Austria). Piecing together the surviving evidence, Wright traces Latino's life in Granada, Iberia's last Muslim metropolis, from his early clandestine education as a slave in a noble household to his distinguished career as a schoolmaster at the University of Granada. When intensifying racial discrimination and the chaos of the Morisco Revolt threatened Latino's hard-won status, he set out to secure his position by publishing an epic poem in Latin verse, the Austrias Carmen, that would demonstrate his mastery of Europe's international literary language and celebrate his own African heritage. Through Latino's remarkable, hitherto untold story, Wright illuminates the racial and religious tensions of sixteenth-century Spain and the position of black Africans within Spain's nascent empire and within the emerging African diaspora."--

Attic oratory and performance
Serafim, Andreas, author
New York : Routledge, 2017
Introduction -- The Hermeneutic Framework: An Analytical Approach -- Construction and manipulation -- Aeschines and Demosthenes in the Theatre of Justice -- Ethopoiia: an inter-generic portrayal of character -- Hypocrisis! Hypocrisis! Hypocrisis! -- Conclusion.

"This book addresses a relatively neglected area in the study of ancient rhetoric: the performance of the speeches that have come down to us in textual form. Although it has never been doubted that Athenian oratory was performed, only a limited amount of scholarly attention has been devoted to this dimension of the corpus. Scholarly opinion has tended to consider it an impossible task to reconstruct performance through an interpretation of the text or to elaborate on the exact nature of the relationship between oratory and theatre. Attic Oratory and Performance fills this gap by providing an in-depth analysis of the ways Attic orators wrote for and executed performance."--

At twilight they return : a novel in ten tales
Zateli, Zyranna, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, 2016
This multigenerational saga is the story of Christoforos, who first weds Petroula, and then Evtha, followed, after her death, by Persa; of his sexually promiscuous son Hesychios and the many bastard children left on the doorstep following the untimely demise of so many would-be daughters-in-law; and of the sisters, brothers, children, and grandchildren who inhabit a household and a history expanding to near-bursting. Rich in symbolism and magical realism, this complex and wondrous family story unfolds nonsequentially in ten interrelated tales. It is a touchstone of contemporary Greek literature, awarded the Greek State Prize for Best Novel in 1994, and is an essential introduction to this rightfully celebrated author.
