Take a trip into the myths and battles of the Trojan War. Dress in drag or pretend madness to avoid the fight; join the aristeia of Diomedes; follow Odysseus as he steals the Palladium; and more. This book offers students the opportunity to enjoy not only the story of the Iliad but the myths before and after in the Trojan Cycle— all in Latin epic style. Latina Mythica II: Troia Capta has twenty chapters. The first two chapters cover mythical material that occurs well before the action of the Iliad. Then, after including much of the action of the Iliad itself, the book concludes with two chapters telling the stories beyond the epic to give a more complete sense of the myth of Troy. It is designed for students who have completed the study of Latin grammar, usually one year of college or two to three years of high school. Facing-page grammatical/vocabulary notes boost reading speed and reader confidence. An introduction in English and citation for the ancient sources of the myths accompany each story. All stories are patterned after ancient authors, making this reader a perfect way to review and reinforce grammar and basic vocabulary, explore classical mythology, and ease into advanced author reading. Special Features • Grammar and comprehension questions • Discussion questions • Cultural influences of the myth in art, music, ballet, and literature • 28 black and white illustrations • An English epilogue • End vocabulary

As a sustained analysis of the connections between narrative structure and meaning in the History of the Peloponnesian War, Carolyn Dewald's study revolves around a curious aspect of Thucydides' work: the first ten years of the war's history are formed on principles quite different from those shaping the years that follow. Although aspects of this change in style have been recognized in previous scholarship, Dewald has rigorously analyzed how its various elements are structured, used, and related to each other. Her study argues that these changes in style and organization reflect how Thucydides' own understanding of the war changed over time. Throughout, however, the History's narrative structure bears witness to Thucydides' dialogic efforts to depict the complexities of rational choice and behavior on the part of the war's combatants, as well as his own authorial interest in accuracy of representation. In her introduction and conclusion, Dewald explores some ways in which details of style and narrative structure are central to the larger theoretical issue of history's ability to meaningfully represent the past. She also surveys changes in historiography in the past quarter-century and considers how Thucydidean scholarship has reflected and responded to larger cultural trends.
