    • Bibliographic details: Artemis Verlag, Zürich / Stuttgart, 1967. 607p. Original blue cloth with dust wrps. Spine gilt titled. Dust wrps to spine a bit stained and to head spine a bit damaged (repaired with acid free adhesive tape). ?Obviously, this big book is an event: here is Klingner?s mature judgement of Virgil. It is not, however, a work of synthesis, a synoptic view of Virgil?s development and total achievement such as some of Klingner?s earlier articles had seemed to foreshadow. Nor does it deal (save in various details) with the past or present literature of the subject. Rather it presents, as Klingner de... Read more

    • Bibliographic details: De Gruyter, Berlin / New York, 1998. X,309p. Original green gilt titled cloth. Light joint in upper edge back cover. Else fine. 'C. does have useful things to say about the 'Georgics'. His reaction to Thomas's ambivalent view of the 'laudes Italiae' is worth reading, as is his discussion of the 'theodicy' of Book 1. The tendentious omissions however, along with the frequent deletions from the text, weaken his case dramatically, as does the failure to address the poem's greater implications outside of the simplistic dichotomy, optimism or pessimism. In short, scholars will want to consult th... Read more

    • Bibliographic details: University of California Press, Berkeley (...),1982. XIX,207,(16)p. ills.(B&W photographs and reproductions). Original blue cloth with dust wrps. Spine gilt titled. ?In ?contrary Commonwealth? Randolph Starn (?) has written an extraordinarily well conceived, well researched, and well written book. In it he examines the ?Theme of Exile? over a 250 year period from the time of Dante to that of the Habsburg-Valois wars. Although the greater part of his focus is on, and his data from, Tuscany, he generalises legitimately upon Italy as a whole. If this is a fine book, it is a difficult one, for ... Read more
