The Passions in Roman Thought and Literature

Author(s): Susanna Morton Braund; Christopher Gill

Latin Literature | Ancient History

New essays by an international team of scholars in Latin literature and ancient philosophy explore the understanding of emotions (or "passions") in Roman thought (especially philosophy and rhetorical theory) and literature. Special features include the wide range of Latin authors discussed (including such famous Latin prose and verse writers as Cicero and Virgil), the fresh and searching studies of key literary texts and the accessibility of the book, in clear and nontechnical language, with Greek and Latin translated.
