Product description

1991, 1st Edition paperback of 316 pages with parallel text in the original Attic Greek and an English translation alongside; bibliography, commentaries, etc. and an index; in Very Good overall Condition. Around in the 2nd century AD, Lucian was a versatile writer of great scope of subject, and deserves to be placed side by side with Herodotus and Aristophanes. He is classical in all but date, and was one of the masters of Attic Greek prose.

MacLeod's translations of clarity bring out Lucian's wit, eloquence, and sense comedy, and offer an entertaining and thought-provoking read. The aim of this selection has been to produce a representative coverage of Lucian's works illustrating his satire, humour, literary artistry and variety, and to include a few works not easily available in English editions. The Greek texts and translations are : The Dream, The Judging of the Goddesses, The Assembly of the Gods, The Fisherman, Menippus or consulting the Oracle in Hades, On the Death of Peregrinus, On Sacrifices: a Diatribe; Zeuxis or Antiochus, How to Write History.Aris & Phillips Ltd., Warminster, England, 1991. Paperback.

BOOK CONDITION : VG overall : slight arc to book; minor shelfwear along edges of covers; very minor rubbing; covers otherwise in excellent condition; minor thumbing to front face, with other faces white; owner's name to top of first leaf; inside pages near original white with preserved tones, and in excellent condition except for minor general curving mentioned above; binding strong and quite tight like new.
