Product Overview

Yale Classical Studies 23 covers a wide range of subjects from Latin literature and language to textual history and criticism. The articles are arranged chronologically.

E. D. Francis gives a history of the words prae and pro, as adverb, preposition and prefix, to the point at which the productive functions of each form converge. H. D. Jocelyn surveys the distribution and differing uses of quotations from Greek poetry in Cicero's prose writings, and D. F. S. Thomson takes a fresh look at the manuscript tradition of Catullus. The remaining six articles deal with later authors and are divided equally between the poets and the historians. Edmund T. Silk suggests a new reading of the first of Horace's Roman Odes and its relation to the other odes in which Horace addresses the Roman people; C. Campbell demonstrates the internal coherence of a Tibullan elegy which has been criticized for lack of unity; and R. S. Kilpatrick does the same for two Juvenal satires. On the historians, R. M. Ogilvie reviews disputed readings in the OCT of Livy IX in the light of evidence supplied by Packard's Concordance; A. D. Leeman analyses the structure of the prologues to the Annals, Histories and Agricola to cast light on Tacitus' intentions; and D. O. Ross argues that Tacitus' portrait of Germanicus is not the sympathetic one it is generally taken to be.
