Virgil's Aeneid. Semantic Relations and Proper Names.
Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1997. XVII,438p. Original black gilt titled cloth with dust wrps. Head spine a little bit bumped. Dust wrps slightly wrinkled at upper part. Else fine. ‘This extraordinarily stimulating book is the first detailed study of the ‘Eaneid’ based on close examination of its essential semantic clusters. Proper names and their meanings, as the book’s subtitle makes clear, are Professor Paschalis’ primary focus and etymology is his fundamental critical tool, but he is also fully attentive to the crucial role in Virgil’s poetry of the repetition of key words and phrases in order to play different contexts off against each other and thereby expand their significance. (...) This is a seminal, innovative work and will be as influential for the study of Virgil's semantics as the theoretical work of Conte is for his generic originality.' (MICHAEL C.J. PUTNAM in The Classical Journal, 1998/99), p.203). From the library of Prof. Carl Deroux.
