This volume provides the first comprehensive overview of the extant Greek and Latin letter collections of late antiquity (ca. 300-600 C.E.). Bringing together an international team of historians, classicists, and scholars of religion, it illustrates how letter collections advertised an image of the letter writer and introduces the social and textual histories of each collection. Each chapter addresses a major collection of Greek or Latin literary letters, examining their assembly, publication, and transmission. In addition, contributions reveals how late antique letter collections operated as a discrete literary genre with its own conventions, transmission processes, and self-presentational agendas. This book will fundamentally change how people both read these texts and use letters to reconstruct the social history of the fourth, fifth, and sixth centuries.
Brandy Borne's eccentric mother, Vivian, has been invited to perform her one-woman show of Macbeth at the hamlet of Old York's Brit-flavored annual fete. Brandy, sensing a dramatic disaster, and savvy shih tzu Sushi, sensing doggy treats, tag along. Before the curtain goes up, an unscripted death occurs onstage. When a second victim makes a too-hasty exit from the mortal coil, Brandy and Vivian must step into the spotlight. But a calculating killer seems to be well-rehearsed for the Borne girls . . .
