Podrobný popis:

Publikace: SELECTED DIALOGUES (Oxford World´s Classics New Edition) - LUCIAN (Translation by COSTA, C. D. N.). The Greek satirist Lucian is a key figure in later Greek

literature, and was immensely influential on later European

literature (Shakespeare used him as a source for Timon of Athens);

he invented comic dialogue as a satiric tool. This new translation

is both accurate and idiomatic, and as entertaining as the

original. The introduction stresses Lucian's importance in his own

and later times, making his writing of interest to students across

a wide range of disciplines, not to mention TV sit-com

scriptwriters. The range of characters in Lucian's satires, from

philosophers to courtesans, make them especially accessible to

non-specialists. Includes Lucian's most famous piece, A True

History, a parody of popular travellers' tales that includes a trip

to the moon, an interstellar war, and a whale so big that it

contains populated land inside it. 'you'll find another man to

harvest, Glycerion: let this one go' The Greek satirist Lucian was

a brilliantly entertaining writer who invented the comic dialogue

as a vehicle for satiric comment. His influence was immense, not

only in the Greek world, but on later European writers such as

Rabelais and Swift. His dialogues puncture the pretensions of

pompous philosophers and describe the daily lives of Greek

courtesans; they are peopled by politicians, historians and

ordinary citizens, as well as by gods and mythic figures. This

selection provides a cross-section of Lucian's styles and satirical

targets, from serious polemic to lighter squibs and character

portrayals. It includes How to Write History and his most famous

piece, A True History, a fabulous tale of space travel and a

monstrous whale which prefigures the fantasies of Jules Verne. This

lively new translation is both accurate and idiomatic, and the

introduction highlights Lucian's importance in his own and later

times. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics
