Pandora is quite an inquisitive Goddess Girl—but she could stand to be more cautious. Pandora is one of the few mortals at Mount Olympus Academy—and probably the most curious of all the students in school. Her quizzical nature is famous—not that she thinks there is anything wrong with being curious, of course! When a godboy named Epimetheus brings a mysterious and fantastical box to school, Pandora’s curiosity is piqued. And when it unexpectedly lands in her lap—literally—she can’t help but take a look at what’s inside. What could be the harm in that? But little does she know that opening the box will open up more trouble than she thought….

The frequent comments about gossip in the Pastoral Epistles are noteworthy, and it often has gender implications. Insights from the growing field of gossip studies from multiple disciplines help to interpret what role gossip plays, especially in relation to how power and authority are distributed and promoted. A presentation of various texts from antiquity shows that the relation between gossip and gender is multiple and complex: to gossip was typical for all women and risky for elite men who constantly had to defend their masculinity. The ancient gossip discourse helps to understand more of the social dynamics of early Christianity, to fill in the imaginative picture and generate ideas to how Christian identity and theology were constructed.

As part of the architectural support for Lady Fame's palace in Chaucer's Hous of Fame various auctors stand like telamons upon pillars in the great hall and bear upon their shoulders the weighty fame of their subject matter. Critics have disputed the import of the auctors' presence on those pillars within Fame's palace: are they there only to support the fame of others or are they there also because they themselves are famous? Or, to paraphrase C.S. Lewis, in the last resort what matters more--the fame a poet has given or the fame a poet has won? Ultimately this dispute offers yet another version of the medieval or renaissance question: does Chaucer remain loyal to the medieval conception of the poet, that often anonymous writer whose prime concern is the renown of his subject matter and his obligation to hand on this matter in a worthy manner; or does Chaucer stray to the renaissance conception that glories more in the poet's individual achievement and the personal renown a poet can attain? To settle this dispute one must determine Chaucer's attitude towards fame and poetry, both in respect to the fame a poet gives to his subject matter and the fame a poet earns for himself. For background I present some of the philosophic views of fame, chronicle personifications of fame, and survey the literary tradition linking fame and poetry in classical literature and in the fourteenth-century Italian revival of this tradition. I then analyze Chaucer's poetry for his response to the tradition in those contexts where one might customarily expect a poet to mention fame. Finally I return to the Hous of Fame itself and reconsider the import of the auctors upon their pillars before looking at Chaucer's historical fame. A lengthy consideration of fame seems naturally to lead ultimately to a consideration of values; for the study of Chaucer and fame one key question that evolves is What matters more to Chaucer--his becoming famous or his achieving artistically in the manner that he desires? It is a question of priorities relevant to Chaucer's attitudes toward his poetry and art.

Friedrich Solmsen provides a new approach to Hesiod's personality in this book by distinguishing Hesiod's own contributions to Greek mythology and theology from the traditional aspects of his poetry. Hesiod's vision of a better world, expressed in religious language and imagery, pictures the savagery and brutality of the earlier days of Greece giving way to an order of justice. In this new order, however, the good aspects of the past would be preserved, giving an inner continuity and strength to the changing world. Solmsen traces the influence of Hesiod’s ideas on other Athenian poets, Aeschylus in particular. From personal political experience Aeschylus could give a deeper meaning to Hesiod's dream of an organic historical evolution and of a synthesis of old and new powers. For Aeschylus, justice became the crucial problem of the political community as well as of the divine order. Through close readings of Hesiod's Theogony and Works and Days and of Aeschylus' Prometheia and Eumenides, Solmsen reinterprets the political ideas of the Greek city state and the relation between divine and human justice as seen by early Greek poets. First published in 1949, this book has long been recognized as the standard work on Hesiod's influence. For the 1995 paperback edition, G. M. Kirkwood has written a new foreword that addresses the book's reception and discusses more recent scholarship on the works Solmsen examines, including the disputed authorship of Prometheia.

Rumors have always left an enigmatic trace through history. In an illustrated, accessible and novel discussion beginning in Greek antiquity and culminating in an examination of the rumor in the technological age, Hans-Joachim Neubauer takes the reader on a tour of its historical and cultural manifestations. Seeking out choice examples from such diverse areas as the French Revolution, the poetry of Chaucer, the American Civil War, through to the internet, Monica Lewinsky and urban myths, the author examines the conditions that breed rumors and explores the way they have been represented in art and literature.
