In this Festschrift colleagues and former students of James M. May, Professor of Classics at Saint Olaf College, join forces to honor him on the occasion of his retirement. The book’s Latin title, Ab omni parte beatus, “blessed from every perspective” (a recast of Horace, Odes 2.16.27–28), suggests the wide sweep of Jim May's accomplishments and the far-flung success he has enjoyed in his forty-year career as teacher, scholar, and administrator; it also alludes to the excellence he displays in every aspect of his life.

By author: Jo-Ann Shelton
Product Code: 8407
ISBN: 978-0-86516-840-4
Product Format: Paperback / softback
Price:  $29.00

The letters of Pliny the Younger contained in this volume provide intermediate and advanced Latin students insight into the political and social life of the early imperial period of Rome. Pliny portrays himself as a generous benefactor to his hometown, a supporter of education, and a patron who promotes the political and literary careers of younger men. His correspondence with Trajan, including the emperor’s responses, documents Pliny’s governorship of the province of Bithynia-Pontus. The letters also reveal more personal aspects of his life, including his relationship with his wife, his views on slavery, and his experiences during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius that killed his uncle, Pliny the Elder.

Plotinus on Beauty and Reality makes accessible to intermediate Greek students two treatises that describe the Neoplatonic cosmos of Plotinus. Enneads I.6 and V.1 treat the creation of the universe, the structure of the levels of reality, the place of the human soul in the universe, and how the soul can return to the One, its creator. The thorough introduction serves as a guide to Plotinus’s metaphysics and his reception.
