Athenaeus (AD ca. 170–ca. 230), a Greek of Naucratis in Egypt, lived in Rome and wrote a historical work now lost. Of the fifteen books of his surviving Deipnosophists ('Sophists at Dinner'), the first two and parts of the third, eleventh, and fifteenth exist only in summary, the rest apparently complete. In it he pretends to tell a friend about a banquet at a scholar's house whither the learned guests brought extracts from poetry for recitation and discussion. Much of the matter however concerns the food provided and accessories. One learns about cooks, strange dishes, wines, menu cards, and countless other matters. Athenaeus was an antiquarian. The whole work, which mentions nearly eight hundred writers and two thousand five hundred writings, is a large treasury of information not only about table matters but also music, dances, games, and all sorts of literary subjects. And it abounds in quotations, mostly made direct by Athenaeus himself, from authors whose writings have not survived. The Loeb Classical Library edition of The Deipnosophists is in seven volumes. There is a comprehensive index in the final volume.

Euripides (c. 485 406 BCE) has been prized in every age for his emotional and intellectual drama. Eighteen of his ninety or so plays survive complete, including "Medea," "Hippolytus," and "Bacchae," one of the great masterpieces of the tragic genre. Fragments of his lost plays also survive.
Sophocles (497/6 406 BCE), considered one of the world s greatest poets, forged tragedy from the heroic excess of myth and legend. Seven complete plays are extant, including "Oedipus Tyrannus," "Ajax," "Antigone," and Philoctetes. Among many fragments that also survive is a substantial portion of the satyr drama "The Searchers."
What were Shakespeare's last thoughts on history, tragedy and comedy? This book focuses attention on Shakespeare's Late Romances. The work - a collection of commissioned essays by scholars of classical political philosophy and literature - offers textual analysis of Pericles, Prince of Tyre, Cymbeline, The Winter's Tale, The Tempest, All is True and The Two Noble Kinsmen. The essays reveal how Shakespeare's thought in these final works compliments, challenges, fulfils or transforms previously held conceptions of the playwright and his political-philosophical views.
