Lucian: A Selection (Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics)

Be the first to review this product

Lucian 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-known 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.
