Papers of the Liverpool Latin Seminar 5, 1985
Edited by Francis Cairns
ISBN 978-0-905205-28-1. ARCA 19. Cloth, viii+502. 1986.
Volume 5 of PLLS was the last of the Liverpool series of seminar volumes. Between 1975 and 1985 the Liverpool Latin Seminar held fifty-two ordinary meetings and four colloquia, involving altogether 156 papers and participants from all over the world. Although many diverse approaches were represented in the Seminar, it was underpinned by two underlying convictions: first, that ancient literature functions at the highest intellectual level and deserves to be studied at that level; and second, that the ancient literatures can only be understood properly against the background of the societies in which they originated.

List of Meetings of the Liverpool Latin Seminar, 1975-1985
Reviewed in Greece and Rome (1987) 221 (D.P. Fowler): "There is an excellent set of indices to all five volumes, by Neil Adkin, and this allows us to see not only the breadth of coverage of the papers they contain but also the variety of approaches represented: Francis Cairns deserves more credit than he is sometimes given for the ideological openness the seminar has always displayed. The present volume contains 22 papers on subjects from Homer to Claudian … and it is as indispensable as ever for serious classical scholars."
Classical Review 38 (1988) 270-74 (Nicholas Horsfall): "A good book, this, and a melancholy task to review it: pp.491-2 contain a terse and dignified obituary of the Liverpool Latin Seminar. The reviewer enjoyed but once the unmistakable warmth and excitement of a meeting and the Cairns' exuberant hospitality and unforgettable black pudding. Over ten years, these 57 meetings (if I have my sums roughly right) were a powerful force for social and intellectual bonding within the profession, and the University of Liverpool, before turning carnufex, helped some forty overseas visitors participate in the proceedings. This last volume contains contributions from Holland, Greece, Germany, Switzerland, the UK, and USA, Italy and Canada, and from at least eight scholars not teaching in the country in which they were - largely - educated. A volume, that is, more truly representative of the international character of Greek and Latin studies than most congresses and than all journals currently appearing. All contributions are in English and a clearly unusual and most laudable effort has gone into raising style and language to a high uniform standard. Though there are markedly 'generic' passages, the independence and varied outlook of the contributors does the editor much credit and there is no trace of the sectarian zeal which seemed to fire some of the participants in the Seminar's earlier years. The five volumes of PLLS apparently contain some papers never delivered and the list of papers delivered contains items both printed elsewhere and others apparently never printed. The means to resolve these bibliographical frustrations are unfortunately not provided, and of the indices, that of 'modern scholars', after study of the limitations expressed on 436, proves of limited value. But it should be said openly and with due emphasis that Cairns over an unprecedentedly hostile decade toiled valiantly to foster contact, collaboration and consolation. Of the twenty-two pieces in this volume, a third are on Virgil, and the rest range from Homer to Claudian. Inevitably, quality and interest are not maintained quite consistently, but the reviewer has derived a great deal of pleasure and instruction from the volume as a whole."

Reviewed in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 7.2 (1996) 95-98 (Sander Goldberg): "Taken as a group, two features of these essays stand out. First is their pronounced conservatism of conception and method. This is most readily apparent on the literary side, where text-based explication remains untouched by the theoretical and "new" historical trends now seizing the attention of Latinists world-wide. The second half of the collection is at heart equally unassuming. … The second noteworthy feature is the overall success of this conservatism."
