Lucian's Dialogues prepared for schools

Postby jeidsath » Sat Jun 28, 2014 2:22 am

I am having trouble finding copies of W.H.D. Rouse's notes to this:

http://books.google.com/books/about/Lucian_s_Dialogues_prepared_for_schools.html?id=uJxLAAAAMAAJ

Does anyone know of a copy? I know that it's in many libraries, but I can't find it on the used market. EDIT: I am looking for the notes (vol. 2), not the dialogues themselves.

There's quite a good short anthology of Lucian's works, pitched at school-level students, by Keith Sidwell in the Bristol Classical Press (1986). There's extensive translation help as well as some brief notes.

He's an excellent author for intermediate students, in my opinion - he writes in nice clear Attic, and the dialogues and stories are often very funny (not to mention highly informative as regards the various philosophical traditions).

Thank you for the suggestion. I am very interested in Rouse's notes in particular, as they are in Greek.
