About this product
- DescriptionLucian of Samosata is one of the most brilliant and wide-ranging writers from antiquity, and yet few commentaries are available for those who wish to read Lucian in Greek. This edition presents a selection of rhetorical and satirical works in the original Greek illustrating his range, wit and literary sophistication. Texts include both more and less well-kwn texts such as The Dream, The Fly, Timon, A Literary Prometheus, Sigma versus Tau and Dialogues of the Sea-Gods. The Introduction discusses his place in the Second Sophistic and his relationship to Cynic philosophy, and each section of commentary is preceded by a literary appraisal. The commentary is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduates and graduate students.
- Author BiographyNeil Hopkinson is Director of Studies and College Lecturer in Classics at Trinity College, Cambridge. He is the author of three previous commentaries in the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics series, including A Hellenistic Anthology (1988) and Ovid: Metamorphoses Book XIII (2000).
