A key figure in the development of Western literature, the Greek poet Theocritus of Syracuse, was the inventor of "bucolic" or pastoral poetry in the first half of the third century BC. These vignettes of country life, which center on competitions of song and love are the foundational poems of the western pastoral tradition. They were the principal model for Virgil in the Eclogues and their influence can be seen in the work of Petrarch and Milton. Although it is the pastoral poems for which he is chiefly famous, Theocritus also wrote hymns to the gods, brilliant mime depictions of everyday life, short narrative epics, epigrams, and encomia of the powerful. The great variety of his poems illustrates the rich and flourishing poetic culture of what was a golden age of Greek poetry. Based on the original Greek text, this accurate and fluent translation is the only edition of the complete Idylls currently in print.
It includes an accessible introduction by Richard Hunter that describes what is known of Theocritus, the poetic tradition and Theocritus' innovations and what exactly is meant by "bucolic" poetry.
To Live in the World as Ourselves: Self-Discovery and Better Relationships through Jung’s Typology is a guide to one of the pillars of Jungian psychology. Going far beyond merely an exercise in categorizing and affixing ourselves and others with a personality “type,” the author offers simple but fundamental aspects of psychology that are easily observable in everyone. The book shows readers how to discover the essentials of their true nature, and offers techniques to live more authentically and with stress, and to relate to others with more ease, understanding and mutual support. Through real-life examples and avatars of typology from popular culture, the author describes extroversion and introversion, thinking, feeling, intuition and sensation, universal psychological abilities to perceive and process life experience that cover all aspects of a fully human life. She shows how an innate hierarchy of these psychological abilities shapes our personal priorities, interests, special talents, ways of working and relating, even how we fall in love. Throughout the book are tips on relating best to people of various typologies, so as to avoid misunderstandings and even heal long-standing conflicts. Readers find out where they are likely to feel vulnerable, and ways to work best with and around fears and self-doubts, leading to self-awareness, self-enhancement and deeply rewarding relationships.
