The Complete Poems of Sappho - Willis Barnstone Preview:

Sappho’s thrilling lyric verse has been unremittingly popular for more than 2,600 years—certainly a record for poetry of any kind—and love for her art only increases as time goes on. Though her extant work consists only of a collection of fragments and a handful of complete poems, her mystique endures to be discovered anew by each generation, and to inspire new efforts at bringing the spirit of her Greek words faithfully into English. In the past, translators have taken two basic approaches to Sappho: either very literally translating only the words in the fragments, or taking the liberty of reconstructing the missing parts. Willis Barnstone has taken a middle course, in which he remains faithful to the words of the fragments, only very judiciously filling in a word or phrase in cases where the meaning is obvious. This edition includes extensive notes and a special section of "Testimonia": appreciations of Sappho in the words of ancient writers from Plato to Plutarch. Also included are a glossary of all the figures mentioned in the poems, and suggestions for further reading..

Studies in Sappho and Alcaeus - Kyriakos Tsantsanoglou Preview:

The poetry of the archaic poets of Lesbos, Sappho and Alcaeus, has been imperfectly and poorly transmitted either in book fragments or in later ragged papyri, so that new attempts of interpretation will always be required, especially when new research tools and methods have appeared in classical scholarship.The book consists of 14 articles by the author, which present and deal with diverse problems of the two poets of Lesbos. Various questions on already transmitted poems, different readings, reconstructions, and interpretations of the new finds are proposed, but, most importantly, new approaches in general topics, such as the division of Sappho’s work in Books, the logic leading to this division, the order of these Books, the contents of each of them, the interpretation of the surviving fragments, often quite different than before. A feature that characterizes the old-age poetry of Sappho is her anxiety about the posthumous fate of her poetry and her hope that Kleïs, her only daughter, will ensure its dissemination. Finally, the author investigates the communal festival of Hera in Lesbos, a festival performed in common with Zeus and Dionysus, the so-called “Lesbian Triad”. The festival is specified as a welcome to the season of spring at the time of the vernal equinox. Also, the location of the temenos of Hera is investigated, close to Pyrrha of Lesbos, which was the site of Alcaeus’ second exile..

Les Thesmophories - Aristophane Preview:

"Les Thesmophories" est une satire d’Euripide, la deuxième d’Aristophane avec "Les Grenouilles". Dans cette pièce, les Athéniennes en ont assez des chicaneries et des critiques d’Euripide, et décident de se venger à l’occasion des fêtes annuelles consacrées aux déesses thesmophores. Euripide, couard mais malin, envoie un parent benêt aux nouvelles, lequel se fait prendre, puis délivrer. La pièce est l’occasion d’une litanie de moqueries à l’encontre de l’œuvre d’Euripide..

Propos sur l'intraduisible - Olga Artyushkina Preview:

Alors que l’activité de traduction est universelle, se pose la question de la part du traduisible et de l’intraduisible et, surtout, celle de la nature de ce dernier. La traductologie (Jakobson, Mounin, Meschonnic, Berman) a théorisé de diverses manières la traduction, ses processus et ses acteurs, de l’auteur en langue source jusqu’au lecteur en langue d’accueil, le possible, le nécessaire et l’impossible à traduire. Dans la pratique, tout traducteur littéraire est confronté à des éléments qu’il juge « intraduisibles », mais les textes traduits proposés à la lecture se présentent implicitement comme les équivalents exacts des originaux et comportent rarement la trace des hésitations et interrogations des traducteurs, le plus souvent sous la forme de notes explicatives en bas de page. L’intraduisible peut être d’ordre référentiel : l’inexistence dans la langue d’une culture donnée d’une entité quelconque, matérielle ou notionnelle, peut aller de pair avec une existence de moyen lexical. Ce fait a été décrit à propos des traductions de la Bible, dans la confrontation du vocabulaire liée à la neige chez les Inuits, etc. L’intraduisible est ici tout relatif et relève encore du domaine de l’explicable. L’intraduisible peut être plus proprement linguistique : les jeux de mots, mais aussi certains traits grammaticaux, faits de morphologie ou tournures syntaxiques peuvent gêner, voire empêcher la traduction, ou au contraire, contraindre le traducteur à prendre des décisions que l’auteur n’a pas eu à prendre. Est-il possible et nécessaire d’expliquer une assonance, l’emploi d’une structure syntaxique ? Il s’agit d’étudier l’intraduisible dans la pratique du traducteur, la nature de l’intraduisible, les « techniques » d’évitement ou d’affrontement mises en œuvre pour produire un texte cohérent et lisible. Les langues mises en présence seront le français, l’allemand et les langues slaves..

Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus - Madeleine Scudéry (de),Georges Scudéry (de) Preview:

Artamène ou le Grand Cyrus est le roman le plus long de la littérature française, et sans doute l’un des plus ambitieux : l’édition originale, parue entre 1649 et 1653, compte treize mille pages et met en scène plus de quatre cents personnages au sein d’une trentaine d’histoires distinctes. Récit « à tiroirs » et « à clés », il connut à l’époque un succès immense ; sa démesure et ses invraisemblances, cependant, lui valurent bientôt une réputation d’illisibilité, et il sombra dans l’oubli. Le présent volume invite à redécouvrir, par extraits, cette somme romanesque : l’intrigue principale, tout à la fois héroïque et galante, qui relate les aventures du conquérant perse Cyrus à la recherche de sa bien-aimée Mandane, mais aussi deux histoires secondaires. Dans l’ « Histoire des amants infortunés », les protagonistes se disputent le titre d’amant le plus malheureux sur le modèle des « cours d’amour » de l’Astrée ou des « questions d’amour » médiévales ; quant à l’ « Histoire de Sapho », version revue et corrigée de la vie de la poétesse grecque, elle témoigne de l’acuité de la réflexion menée par Mlle de Scudéry sur la condition de la femme écrivain. Cette édition est coordonnée avec le site Internet « Artamène » (http://www.artamene.org), qui offre l’intégralité du texte du roman..

Les Métamorphoses d'Éros - Jacques Mazel Preview:

Placé sous l'invocation d'Éros, le livre de Jacques Mazel nous initie, à travers une galerie de personnages empruntés à l'Histoire et à la mythologie (Aspasie, Socrate, Épicure, Aphrodite...), à toutes les formes de l'amour pratiquées dans la Grèce antique. Il en dévoile les rites et les secrets, depuis la couche conjugale, dominée par l'épouse - avant tout mère des enfants et gardienne du foyer - jusqu'au monde de la prostitution, du lupanar sordide, au luxe effréné des grandes courtisanes. Mais c'est sur la palestre, ou au cours du banquet, haut lieu de la convivialité chez les Grecs, que l'homme atteint peut-être l'absolu de la volupté. Pleinement et librement vécu, l'amour pédérastique suscite cet échange d'un genre unique entre l'homme mûr et le jeune garçon, où s'exprime l'essence d'une civilisation. Toujours attentif à l'exactitude archéologique, et cela dans les moindres détails, l'auteur ne sacrifie pas pour autant l'art du récit. Cette fresque de l'amour en Grèce nous est restituée à travers une écriture élégante et sensible..

Formes brèves - Collectif Preview:

Les formes brèves sont aujourd'hui un mode de communication et d'expression artistique incontournable, omniprésent dans notre culture mais en même temps méconnu. Mouvant et polymorphe, ce format relève aussi bien de l'art que de la littérature, des sciences de la communication, du cinéma, de l'audiovisuel et de nombreux autres domaines. Il n'a pas pour autant fait l'objet que d'un petit nombre de publications interdisciplinaires. Les textes rassemblés ici selon une perspective interdisciplinaire et internationale envisagent donc les formes brèves dans leur diversité, d'un point de vue diachronique tout autant que synchronique. Ils permettent de nourrir non seulement des analyses ciblées sur ces différents types de formes brèves (au cinéma, en littérature, dans l'art, dans la communication, etc.), mais aussi une réflexion théorique sur les questions de définitions, les enjeux, la modernité, ou encore sur la transgénéricité et la transmédialité qui caractérisent souvent ces formes brèves..

God's Library - Brent Nongbri Preview:

A provocative book from a highly original scholar, challenging much of what we know about early Christian manuscripts In this bold and groundbreaking book, Brent Nongbri provides an up-to-date introduction to the major collections of early Christian manuscripts and demonstrates that much of what we thought we knew about these books and fragments is mistaken. While biblical scholars have expended much effort in their study of the texts contained within our earliest Christian manuscripts, there has been a surprising lack of interest in thinking about these books as material objects with individual, unique histories. We have too often ignored the ways that the antiquities market obscures our knowledge of the origins of these manuscripts. Through painstaking archival research and detailed studies of our most important collections of early Christian manuscripts, Nongbri vividly shows how the earliest Christian books are more than just carriers of texts or samples of handwriting. They are three-dimensional archaeological artifacts with fascinating stories to tell, if we’re willing to listen..

Everytime a Knot is Undone, a God is Released - Barbara Chase-Riboud Preview:

The long breath of Barbara Chase-Riboud's poems recalls poets of the antique world we know only from fragments, like Sappho. And yet here is a disquieting and sumptuous contemporary voice that seems to gather up antiquity and modernity with equal fervor and scorn. These poems are sexually charged, possessed of a courtly disdain and a strange nobility that seems to well up from below to be self-creating and unlike the verse of any other poet writing today. Certainly one secret to this work is that Chase-Riboud's poems are informed by her epic, polished bronze sculptures, as her sculptures are informed by her narrative fiction, and her fiction by her poems. The idea of the Renaissance Man is almost a cliché, but how often do we get to see what it means for an artist to be a Renaissance Woman? Chase-Riboud has been a major in sculpture, fiction, and poetry for close to half a century: selling over a million copies of her path-breaking novel Sally Hemings in the late '70s, winning the Carl Sandburg Award for her second collection of poems in the late '80s, and now, nearly thirty years later, on the heels of a major retrospective of her sculpture at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Berkeley Art Museum, here is Everytime a Knot is Undone, a God is Released, her first new and collected volume of verse..

The lenses he provides are as clear as our language is capable of making them."—Moses Hadas, N.Y. Herald Tribune.

All the extant fragments of Herakleitos and a collection of Diogenes' words from various sources. Herakleitos' words, 2500 years old, usually appear in English translated by philosophers as makeshift clusters of nouns and verbs which can then be inspected at length. Here they are translated into plain English and allowed to stand naked and unchaperoned in their native archaic Mediterranean light. The practical words of the Athenian street philosopher Diogenes have never before been extracted from the apocryphal anecdotes in which they have come down to us. They are addressed to humanity at large, and are as sharp and pertinent today as when they were admired by Alexander the Great and Saint Paul..

Long a master of the crafts of Homeric translation and of rhapsodic performance, Stanley Lombardo now turns to the quintessential epic of Roman antiquity, a work with deep roots in the Homeric tradition. With characteristic virtuosity, he delivers a rendering of the Aeneid as compelling as his groundbreaking translations of the Iliad and the Odyssey, yet one that—like the Aeneid itself—conveys a unique epic sensibility and a haunting artistry all its own. W. R. Johnson's Introduction makes an ideal companion to the translation, offering brilliant insight into the legend of Aeneas; the contrasting roles of the gods, fate, and fortune in Homeric versus Virgilian epic; the character of Aeneas as both wanderer and warrior; Aeneas' relationship to both his enemy Turnus and his lover Dido; the theme of doomed youths in the epic; and Virgil's relationship to the brutal history of Rome that he memorializes in his poem.

Aphrodite and Eros - Barbara Breitenberger Preview:

This book offers a groundbreaking revision of the popular image of Aphrodite and Eros that lives on in Roman poetry (Venus and Cupid) and has inspired artists for centuries. An interdisciplinary analysis of the Archaic period - using literary, iconographical, and cultic evidence - shows the distinct concept behind the two deities of love. Aphrodite's character, sphere of influence, and function feature in her traditional myths and are well reflected in cult. Eros, however, was not yet a similarly personified mythical figure at that stage, nor did he have an individual cult. Breitenberger follows the different stages of the development of Eros's personality. Originally a cosmic entity and an unpersonified aspect of Aphrodite, he was given his mythical identity by successive archaic lyric poets who were particularly keen to mythologize a male counterpart to the established love-goddess Aphrodite. This male love-god turns out to be the divinized homoerotic ideal of the male aristocracy 'worshipped' at their symposia. The development of the male love-god is taken as an example to demonstrate that poets' artistic innovation as well as their social and historical background played an important role in creating Greek mythology..
