Nicholas Elizabeth Amber 2007-08 The Lords of Satyr have a unique birthright. To say that Lord Nicholas Satyr, one of three brothers and heir to a stunning Tuscan vineyard, is a gentleman unlike any other would be a gross understatement. Half-human, half-satyr, he is an aristocrat of passionate excess, especially on a Calling night, and revels in the debauched pleasures of his otherworldly legacy, where nothing is forbidden. His talents and tastes are varied, in fact, but Nicholas has agreed to seek out and marry a FaerieBlend female, one unaware of her otherworldly birthright, to honor the king of ElseWorld's dying request--who, it has been revealed, fathered three half-faerie daughters. Nicholas's search takes him to Rome, then to a city just outside of it, where pretty Jane Cova, guised as a fortune-telling gypsy, captures his interest and his desire. Although he doesn't expect his marriage to Signorina Cova to be about passion, Nicholas is strangely struck by her innocence and unconscious beauty. To his surprise, he would like to teach Jane how to give and receive pleasure--when he had thought he would simply want a proper wife--but Jane is determined to keep her secrets safe and her desires in check.
Dionysos in Classical Athens Cornelia Isler-Kerényi 2014-11-14 Dionysos, with his following of satyrs and women, was a major theme in a big part of the figure painted pottery in 500-300 B.C. Athens. As an original testimonial of their time, the imagery on these vases convey what this god meant to his worshippers. It becomes clear that - contrary to what is usually assumed - he was not only appropriate for wine, wine indulgence, ecstasy and theatre. Rather, he was present in both the public and private sphere on many, both happy and sad, occasions. In addition, the vase painters have emphasized different aspects of Dionysos for their customers inside and outside of Athens, depending on the political and cultural situation.

An Impractical Guide to Satyr Charming Cynthia Diamond 2021-05-09 With her magic stolen, Ivy Bennett is a witch doomed to die. But she isn't giving up without a fight. One ritual could restore her power, all she needs is a little elbow grease and an abandoned house in the woods. Unfortunately, the home's current resident -an arrogant satyr named Finn- will not tolerate a witch in his territory. Ivy will be damned if the goat-legged jerk gets in her way. If only he wasn't as sexy as he is infuriating. Charming a satyr isn't at the top of Ivy's do-to-list, but it's either come to a truce with the insufferable male or knock on death's door. After witnessing the slaughter of his herd, Finn's sole purpose is to protect his brother and his lands from deadly witches. But when one moves in, his fury rises. While the need to drive the witch away is strong, his desire for her is stronger. Soon he finds himself wanting the lovely, stubborn female more than hating her. But keeping Ivy as his own would forfeit everything he's held sacred. And now her presence has attracted something in the forest... Something that may destroy them all.

Euripides: Cyclops Carl A. Shaw 2018-02-08 With its ribald chorus of ithyphallic, half-man / half-horse creatures, satyr drama was a peculiar part of the Athenian theatrical experience. Performed three times each year after a trilogy of tragedies, it was an integral part of the 5th- and 4th-century City Dionysia, a large festival in honour of the god Dionysus. Euripides: Cyclops is the first book-length study of this fascinating genre's only complete, extant play, a theatrical version of Odysseus' encounter with the monster Polyphemus. Shaw begins with a look at the history of the genre, following its development from early 6th-century religious processions up to the Hellenistic era. He then offers a comprehensive analysis of the Cyclops' plot and performance, using the text (alongside ancient literary fragments and visual evidence) to determine the original viewing experience: the stage, masks, costumes, actions and emotions. A detailed examination of the text reveals that Euripides associates and distinguishes his version of the story from previous iterations of the myth, especially book nine of Homer's Odyssey. Euripides handles many of the same themes as his predecessors, but he updates the Cyclops for the Athenian stage, adapting his work to reflect and comment upon contemporary religious, philosophical and literary-musical trends.
Luxus Kenneth Lapatin 2015-07-01 In contrast to other histories of ancient art that typically privilege well-preserved works of ceramics or stone, Luxus offers an integrated contextual analysis of artifacts fashioned from a wide variety of luxury materials, which survive in far greater number than is typically supposed. These include gold and silver, semiprecious hard stones, and organic materials, such as ivory, fine woods, amber, pearl, coral, and textiles. Examining some of the finest surviving examples of ancient craftsmanship, renowned expert Kenneth Lapatin approaches objects in these diverse media from a variety of viewpoints, providing a valuable model for a more pluralistic approach to visual culture with the greater goal of reinvigorating the study of ancient art and society. As its title implies, Luxus is richly illustrated, containing over 200 images of superb works located in collections throughout the world. Each plate is accompanied by extensive documentation and discursive commentary. An introductory chapter explores the ideologies and uses of the luxury arts in ancient Greece and Rome, considers ancient debates about their value, and traces their decline in modern historiography. The book then goes on to address a broad range of luxury goods, such as intaglios, cameos, vessels, and statuettes, providing a full and multifaceted account of luxury in the ancient world.
