TITLES
E
Theocritus (early third century BC) was the inventor of the bucolic genre, also known as pastoral. Like his contemporary Callimachus, Theocritus was a learned poet who followed the aesthetic, developed a generation earlier by Philitas of Cos (LCL 508), of refashioning traditional literary forms in original ways through tightly organized and highly polished work on a small scale (thus the traditional generic title
Idylls
: “little forms”). The present edition of his work, along  with that of his successors Moschus (fl. mid-second century BC) and Bion (fl. around 100 BC), replaces the earlier Loeb Classical Library edition by J. M. Edmonds (1912), using the critical texts of Gow (1952) and Gallavotti (1993) as a base and providing a fresh translation with ample annotation.

Galen of Pergamum (AD 129–?199/216), physician to the court of the emperor Marcus Aurelius, was a philosopher, scientist, and medical historian, who wrote forcefully and prolifically on an astonishing range of subjects and whose impact on later eras rivaled that of Aristotle. Galen synthesized the entirety of Greek medicine as a basis for his own doctrines and practice, which comprehensively embraced theory, practical knowledge, experiment, logic, and a deep understanding of human life and society. In the three classic works in this  volume, Galen covers fundamental aspects of his practice in a lucid and engaging style designed to appeal to a broad audience.

The
Histories
 of Sallust (86–35 BC), while fragmentary, provide invaluable information and insight about a crucial period of history spanning the period from 78 to around 67 BC. For this volume, which completes the Loeb Classical Library edition of Sallust’s works, John T. Ramsey has freshly edited the
Histories
 and the two pseudo- Sallustian
 Letters to Caesar 
, supplying ample annotation.

R
Statius’
Silvae
, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between AD 89 and 96. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct pictorial quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian’s Rome. Statius was raised in the Greek cultural milieu of the Bay of Naples, and his Greek literary education lends a sophisticated veneer to his ornamental  verse. D. R. Shackleton Bailey’s edition of the
Silvae
, which replaced the earlier Loeb Classical Library edition with translation by J. H. Mozley, is now reissued with corrections by Christopher A. Parrott.
