♥ Book Title : History of Greek Culture
☯ Full Synopsis : "This monumental work by a distinguished European scholar presents a scrupulously realistic approach to ancient Greek civilization. Professor Burckhardt dispenses with superficial and sentimental views of ancient Greece to embrace a more sophisticated and accurate vision of a complex culture that practiced both the best and worst elements of the social contract. A penetrating thinker with a genius for concrete illustration, Burckhardt begins with a thorough account of the development of the polis, or city-state, exploring its regional variations and offering a balanced appraisal of its virtues and faults. In the second part, he discusses fine arts and their expression, with particular focus on sculpture, painting, and architecture. Part Three examines poesy and music, with an in-depth account of Homeric traditions and their role in maintaining the form and order of Greek beliefs and myths, as well as a consideration of other poetic forms, including the classical theater. The final part comprises perceptive accounts of numerous and enduring Greek achievements in philosophy, science, and oratory. In addition to an excellent glossary, the work is profusely illustrated with 80 photographs and many fine drawings."Article| Jacob Burckhardt| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Literature and the Visual Arts in Ancient Greece and Rome
☯ Full Synopsis : "Does art merely imitate reality, or does it also create reality? Where does imagination come into the creative process? How do the arts portray movement through time and space? In Literature and the Visual Arts in Ancient Greece and Rome, D. Thomas Benediktson looks to the ancient Greek and Roman worlds to see how these and other questions were formulated and answered. As scholars have sought a unified doctrine for comparing written and visual arts, they have given the mimetic doctrines of Plato and Aristotle the most attention. By tracing ancient comparisons between the two art forms, Benediktson shows that there was no dominant theory of ut pictura poesis, or "as painting, poetry". Rather, as the ancient Mediterranean world moved from an oral to a written culture, literature became increasingly distinct from the visual arts, compelling the ancients to grapple with a variety of theoretical issues."Article| D. Thomas Benediktson| Statement ..."
