Book Short Summary:

Saadi is one of the greatest figures of classical Persian literature. His best-known work of poetry is the ‘Bustan’ (The Orchard), composed entirely in epic metre and consisting of stories illustrating the standard virtues recommended to Muslims, as well as offering reflections on the behaviour of dervishes and their ecstatic practices. Saadi also wrote the ‘Gulistan’, a prose collection featuring stories and personal anecdotes. The text is interspersed with a variety of short poems, containing aphorisms, advice and humorous reflections. Saadi’s works are characterised by their unusual blend of kindness and cynicism, always wishing to avoid the hard dilemma, making him, for many, the most widely admired poet of Persian literature. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting. This volume presents Saadi’s collected works, with related illustrations and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Book Short Summary:

Saint Gregory the Great was Pope from 590 to 604, launching the famous Gregorian Mission, the first recorded large-scale mission from Rome, to convert the pagan Anglo-Saxons of England to Christianity. The epithet “the Great” reflects Gregory’s status as a celebrated writer as well as a ruler. The fourth and final of the traditional Latin Fathers of the Church, Gregory is now regarded as the first exponent of a truly medieval, sacramental spirituality. His Commentary on Job and his handbook for rulers, Pastoral Rule, were extremely popular treatises throughout the middle ages, while the Dialogues feature a compelling life of Saint Benedict and his many miracles. Gregory’s works provided practical wisdom and enlightenment for the people of the Dark Ages. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Gregory the Great’s collected works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1) * Beautifully illustrated with images relating to Gregory’s life and works * Features the major works of Gregory I, in both English translation and the original Latin * Concise introductions to the major texts * Excellent formatting of the texts * Includes rare sermons by Gregory, first time in digital print * Features three bonus biographies, including the Venerable Bede’s account of Gregory’s life — immerse yourself in the Saint’s ancient world * Scholarly ordering of texts into chronological order and literary genres Please visit www.delphiclassics.com to explore our range of Ancient Classics titles or buy the entire series as a Super Set CONTENTS: The Translations Commentary on Job (Translated by J.

Book Short Summary:

The early nineteenth century philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel is an important figure of German idealism, who achieved wide recognition within the continental tradition of philosophy. He has since become increasingly influential in the analytic tradition and his canonical stature within Western philosophy is universally recognised. Hegel’s principal achievement was his development of a distinctive articulation of idealism, in which the dualisms of mind and nature and subject and object are overcome. His philosophy of spirit conceptually integrates psychology, the state, history, art, religion and philosophy.

The earliest of the ten Attic orators, Antiphon of Rhamnus was an important figure in fifth century BC Athenian political and intellectual life. Disliking democracy, he was an ardent oligarch, who helped set up a violent short-lived oligarchy in 411. The restored democracy executed him for treason. Antiphon was a logographer — a professional author of judicial discourse, writing speeches for other people involved in litigation. His surviving speeches reveal a vast knowledge of oratorical studies, a vivid flavour of Athenian court life and gripping details about real life murder cases in the ancient world.

Book Short Summary:

A first century Roman poet of Etruscan origin, Persius wrote polished satires that reveal his interest in Stoicism and a strong criticism for what he considered to be the stylistic abuses of his poetic contemporaries. Like Juvenal who would write half a century later, Persius was the heir to the style of Latin verse satire developed by Lucilius and Horace, which were clearly aimed at a sophisticated and urban audience. He adopts the mask of an angry man, while his sharp criticism of the society in which he lives is combined with flashes of sardonic humor. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Persius’ complete extant works, with illustrations, an informative introduction and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Book Short Summary:

The Roman historian Velleius Paterculus lived during the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, serving as a military tribune and later as a cavalry officer and legatus in Germany and Pannonia. Written in a highly rhetorical style, his ‘Compendium of Roman History’ is a summary of Roman history from the mythical fall of Troy to AD 29. As Paterculus approaches his own times, he becomes much fuller in his treatment of history, especially dealing with the years between the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BC and Augustus in 14. He is generally trustworthy in his statements of individual facts, serving as a courtly annalist and providing a unique window into this important time of Roman history. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Paterculus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
