Apuleius' famous novel, The Metamorphoses, tells the story of a man who was magically changed into an ass, and who had various (humorous, sad, exciting, disturbing, erotic, horrific) adventures before he regained his human form. As well as being genuinely interesting and great fun to read, The Metamorphoses is of great value for the study of narrative technique, literary style, religious practices, contemporary culture in a Roman province and much more. This book contains selections from the novel and is aimed at students moving on to genuine, unsimplified Latin prose after completing an introductory Latin course. It contains a useful introduction, detailed notes providing a lot of help with grammar, expression and translation, a full vocabulary, and passages of appreciation to make the selections come alive as literature and to enhance students' perception and enjoyment of the stories.

Liebestaumel und Caesaren-Spott Sehnsucht, Verliebtheit, Eifersucht, Hilflosigkeit: Catulls Liebesgedichte spiegeln das gesamte Spektrum menschlicher Gefühle wider. Vor seinen Spottgedichten hingegen mussten sich nicht nur seine Kritiker fürchten, sondern auch untreue Freunde und Geliebte. Selbst Politiker wie Caesar waren vor Catulls anzüglichen Attacken nicht sicher. War es die unverblümte Sprache des Dichters, welche die Überlieferung beinahe abreißen ließ? Noch bis heute spricht Verlegenheit aus vielen Übertragungen. In seiner Neuübersetzung entkleidet Niklas Holzberg den Text von aller falschen Scham und präsentiert frisch und lebendig den unsterblichen Catull

Reading the Way to the Netherworld

Education and the Representations of the Beyond in Later Antiquity. EBook

The volume focuses on the various representations of the Beyond in later Antiquity, a period of intense interaction and competition between various religious traditions and ideals of education. The concepts and images clustering around the Beyond form a crucial focal point for understanding the dynamics of religion and education in later Antiquity. Although Christianity gradually supersedes the pagan traditions, the literary representations of the Beyond derived from classical literature and transmitted through the texts read at school show a remarkable persistence: they influence Christian late antique writers and are still alive in medieval literature of the East and West. A specifically Christian Beyond develops only gradually, and coexists subsequently with pagan ideas, which in turn vary according to the respective literary and philosophical contexts. Thus, the various conceptualisations of the great existential unknown, serves here as a point of reference for mirroring the changes and continuities in Imperial and Late Antique religion, education, and culture, and opening up further perspectives into the Medieval world.

Apollonius of Tyre was one of the most popular stories of the German Middle Ages. In a critical Latin and German parallel edition, this volume presents the previously unedited version of "Apollonius" produced by the early humanist Heinrich Steinhowel, along with information about the transmission and genesis of the text. The research section situates the author and the work in its socio-historical context and goes beyond its literary-historical aspects to focus on cultural and economic interconnections."
