Between 1839 and 1851 Ernest Ludwig von Leutsch (1808-1887) and Friedrich Wilhelm Schneidewin (1810-1856), classics professors at the University of Göttingen, published this collection of ancient paroimia or proverbs written or collected by ancient Greek authors. Volume 1 contains writings by Zenobius, Diogenianus, Plutarchus, and Gregorius Cyprius. A critical apparatus for each text cites variant readings between manuscripts; a running Latin commentary is given below the critical apparatus; and a Latin preface, written by Schneidewin, introduces the volume and explains the editorial methods underlying the work. The Corpus has long been considered the definitive collection of Greek paroemiography and is still used as a model of textual editing by researchers today. Unsurpassed in its breath and scope, it remains an indispensable tool for students and scholars of the Greek proverbial tradition. It ranks as one of the outstanding achievements of nineteenth-century scholarship.

Literary satire assumes three main forms: monologue, parody, and narrative (some fictional, some dramatic). This book by Gilbert Highet is a study of these forms, their meaning, their variation, their powers. Its scope is the range of satirical literature—from ancient Greece to modern America, from Aristophanes to Ionesco, from the parodists of Homer to the parodists of Eisenhower. It shows how satire originated in Greece and Rome, what its initial purposes and methods were, and how it revived in the Renaissance, to continue into our own era. Contents: Preface. I. Introduction. II. Diatribe. III. Parody. IV. The Distorting Mirror. V. Conclusion. Notes. Brief Bibliography. Index. Originally published in 1962. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
