Alice falls through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar creatures. The Classics-In-Cursive series publishes classic novels and story books in a cursive font. Why?

This is where the Classics-In-Cursive series comes in. It fills the large void by providing stories to read in cursive.

Writing down the epic tales of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus in texts that became the Iliad and the Odyssey was a defining moment in the intellectual history of the West, a moment from which many current conventions and attitudes toward books can be traced. But how did texts originally written on papyrus in perhaps the eighth century BC survive across nearly three millennia, so that today people can read them electronically on a smartphone? Classics from Papyrus to the Internet provides a fresh, authoritative overview of the transmission and reception of classical texts from antiquity to the present. The authors begin with a discussion of ancient literacy, book production, papyrology, epigraphy, and scholarship, and then examine how classical texts were transmitted from the medieval period through the Renaissance and the Enlightenment to the modern era. They also address the question of reception, looking at how succeeding generations responded to classical texts, preserving some but not others. This sheds light on the origins of numerous scholarly disciplines that continue to shape our understanding of the past, as well as the determined effort required to keep the literary tradition alive. As a resource for students and scholars in fields such as classics, medieval studies, comparative literature, paleography, papyrology, and Egyptology, Classics from Papyrus to the Internet presents and discusses the major reference works and online professional tools for studying literary transmission.

Who first thought of atoms? How much can you learn about archaeology from an oil lamp? Who came up with the theory of the ‘wandering womb’? Oxford Classicist Jane Hood delves into the history, culture, literature, mythology and philosophy of ancient Greece, Rome and Egypt, using her expert eye to unearth unexpected gems, glittering fragments and quotable nuggets from a lost world. From ancient cosmetics to the earliest known computer, from the deciphering of ancient languages to the amazing things the Romans did with concrete, this is the essential miscellany for all curious minds, whether you learned the Classics at school or not.

Der M�nchskalligraph Huai-su (ca. 725-ca. 782) gilt als einer der Begruender der "Wilden Konzeptschrift" (k'uang-ts'ao), die den exzentrischen Stil innerhalb der chinesischen Kalligraphiegeschichte pr�gte und zur Herausbildung einer vom klassischen Ideal der Wang-Schule abweichenden Traditionslinie fuehrte. Die vorliegende Studie gibt erstmals Einblick in die Prim�rquellen: neben Briefen und anderen Zeugnissen des Huai-su zahlreiche Lobgedichte von Beamten und Gelehrten. Alles deutet darauf hin, da� es sich bei seinem Hauptwerk, der sog. Autobiographie, um ein Empfehlungsschreiben in eigener Sache handelt. Neben einer annotierten �bersetzung der Autobiographie und s�mtlicher Kollophone, die einen �berblick ueber das Schicksal der Querrolle im Laufe der Jahrhunderte vermitteln, bietet die Studie eine Untersuchung der �sthetischen Kriterien, welche die chinesische Kunsttheorie zur Beurteilung der "wilden Konzeptschrift" entwickelte, und stellt neue Methoden der formalen Analyse vor. Die Frage der Authentizit�t der im Palastmuseum Taipei befindlichen Querrolle wird eingehend geprueft; der Beweis, da� es sich nicht um ein Original aus der Hand des Huai-su, sondern um eine dem Original sehr nahe gepauste Kopie des 12.-13. Jhs. handelt, wird erbracht. Auch die uebrigen, seinem Oeuvre zugerechneten Werke werden vorgestellt und einer kritischen Analyse unterzogen.

An Anchor Books Original Seventy-four distinguished writers tell personal tales of books loved and lost–great books overlooked, under-read, out of print, stolen, scorned, extinct, or otherwise out of commission. Compiled by the editors of Brick: A Literary Magazine, Lost Classics is a reader’s delight: an intriguing and entertaining collection of eulogies for lost books. As the editors have written in a joint introduction to the book, “being lovers of books, we’ve pulled a scent of these absences behind us our whole reading lives, telling people about books that exist only on our own shelves, or even just in our own memory.” Anyone who has ever been changed by a book will find kindred spirits in the pages of Lost Classics. Each of the editors has contributed a lost book essay to this collection, including Michael Ondaatje on Sri Lankan filmmaker Tissa Abeysekara’s Bringing Tony Home, a novella about a mutual era of childhood. Also included are Margaret Atwood on sex and death in the scandalous Doctor Glas, first published in Sweden in 1905; Russell Banks on the off-beat travelogue Too Late to Turn Back by Barbara Greene–the “slightly ditzy” cousin of Graham; Bill Richardson on a children’s book for adults by Russell Hoban; Ronald Wright on William Golding’s Pincher Martin; Caryl Phillips on Michael Mac Liammoir’s account of his experiences on the set of Orson Welles’s Othello, and much, much more. From the Trade Paperback edition.
