An Anthology of British Neo-Latin Literature319Skickas inom 5-8 vardagar.
Fri frakt inom Sverige för privatpersoner.This volume offers a wide range of sample passages from literature written in Latin in the British Isles during the period from about 1500 to 1800. It includes a general introduction to and bibliography to the Latin literature of these centuries, as well as Latin texts with English translations, introductions and notes. These texts present a rich panorama of the different literary genres, styles and themes flourishing at the time, illustrating the role of Latin texts in the development of literary genres, the diversity of authors writing in Latin in early modern Britain, and the importance of Latin in contemporary political, religious and scientific debates. The collection, which includes both texts by well-known authors (such as John Milton, Thomas More and George Buchanan) and previously unpublished items, can be used as a point of entry for students at school and university level, but will also be of interest to specialists in a number of academic disciplines.

Comprehensive in its range, informative and perceptive in its presentation of the single texts, this book is a model of its kind. -- Martin Korenjak, Professor of Classics, University of Innsbruck (and Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies), Austria
