Petroniovo Satirikon

£14.99

Product description

Petroniovo Satirikon - Pokud se zachovalo v rukopise leidenskem, bernskem a trogirsken, obsahujici z celeho dila zlomky knih xv a xvi a vypravujici prihody enkolpiovy.

Satyricon nebo Satyricon liber (kniha satyrských dobrodružství) je latinské fiktivní dílo, o němž se domnívá, že napsal Gaius Petronius, i když rukopisná tradice identifikuje autora jako Titus Petronius. Satyricon je příklad menippeanské satiry, která se liší od formální satiry Juvenal nebo Horace. Práce obsahuje směs prózy a verše (běžně známý jako prosimetrum); vážné a komické prvky; a erotické a dekadentní pasáže. Stejně jako v Metamorphoses (také nazývaný The Golden Ass) Apuleius, klasičtí učenci často popisují to jako "románský román", aniž by nezbytně znamenali kontinuitu s moderní literární podobou.

Naše kniha je českým překladem z roku 1925. Vynikající stránky, malý okraj a obložení desky + nápis na leták.

Petroniovo Satirikon - If it was preserved in the Leiden, Berne and Trogirsken manuscripts, containing the whole fragments of the xv and xvi books and telling the enkolpi events.

The Satyricon, or Satyricon liber (The Book of Satyrlike Adventures), is a Latin work of fiction believed to have been written by Gaius Petronius, though the manuscript tradition identifies the author as Titus Petronius. The Satyricon is an example of Menippean satire, which is different from the formal verse satire of Juvenal or Horace. The work contains a mixture of prose and verse (commonly known as prosimetrum); serious and comic elements; and erotic and decadent passages. As with the Metamorphoses (also called The Golden Ass) of Apuleius, classical scholars often describe it as a "Roman novel", without necessarily implying continuity with the modern literary form.

Our book is a Czech translation from 1925. Excellent pages, a little edge and board wear + inscription to fly-leaf.
