Loeb Classical Library

The Loeb Classical Library is a series of books published by Heinemann in London, today by Harvard University Press, which presents important works of ancient Greek and Latin literature in a way designed to make the text accessible to the broadest possible audience, by presenting the original Greek or Latin text on each left-hand page, a literal translation on the facing page. The General Editor is Jeffrey Henderson, holder of the William Goodwin Aurelio Professorship of Greek Language and Literature at Boston University; the Loeb Classical Library was conceived and funded by the Jewish-German-American banker and philanthropist James Loeb. The first volumes were edited by T. E. Page, W. H. D. Rouse, Edward Capps, published by William Heinemann, Ltd. in 1912 in their distinctive green and red hardcover bindings. Since scores of new titles have been added, the earliest translations have been revised several times. In recent years, this has included the removal of earlier editions' bowdlerization, which habitually extended to reversal of gender to disguise homosexual references or translated sexually explicit passages into Latin, rather than English.

Since 1934, it has been co-published with Harvard University. Profit from the editions continues to fund graduate student fellowships at Harvard University; the Loebs have only a minimal critical apparatus. They are intended for the amateur reader of Greek or Latin, are so nearly ubiquitous as to be recognizable. In 1917 Virginia Woolf wrote: The Loeb Library, with its Greek or Latin on one side of the page and its English on the other, came as a gift of freedom.... The existence of the amateur was recognised by the publication of this Library, to a great extent made respectable.... The difficulty of Greek is not sufficiently dwelt upon, chiefly because the sirens who lure us to these perilous waters are scholars have forgotten... What those difficulties are, but for the ordinary amateur they are real and great. Harvard University assumed complete responsibility for the series in 1989 and in recent years four or five new or re-edited volumes have been published annually. In 2001, Harvard University Press began issuing a second series of books with a similar format.

The I Tatti Renaissance Library presents key Renaissance works in Latin with a facing English translation. A third series, the Dumbarton Oaks Medieval Library, was introduced in 2010 covering works in Byzantine Greek, Medieval Latin, Old English. Volumes with a brown cover; the Clay Sanskrit Library, bound in teal cloth, was modeled on the Loeb Classical Library. As the command of Latin among generalist historians and archaeologists shrank in the course of the 20th century, professionals came to rely on these texts designed for amateurs; as Birgitta Hoffmann remarked in 2001 of Tacitus' Agricola, "Unfortunately the first thing that happens in bilingual versions like the Loebs is that most of this apparatus vanishes and, if you use a translation, there is no way of knowing that there were problems with the text in the first place."In 2014, the Loeb Classical Library Foundation and Harvard University Press launched the digital Loeb Classical Library, described as "an interconnected searchable, perpetually growing, virtual library of all, important in Greek and Latin literature."

Shane Tudor

Shane Anthony Tudor is an English former footballer. He played as a midfielder in the right wing position, he scored 31 goals in 234 appearances throughout a ten-year career in the Football League. He began his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers, before moving to Cambridge United in November 2001, he played for the club in the Football League Trophy final in 2002, but severe financial difficulties caused the club to drop from the Second Division into the Conference National. He signed with Leyton Orient in May 2005, helped the club win promotion out of League Two in 2005–06. Moving on to Port Vale in May 2007, injuries began to disrupt his career, leaving him unable to play for Shrewsbury Town despite him joining the club on loan, he retired from football in January 2009 aged just 26, after a knee injury ended his professional career. Tudor began his career at hometown club Wolverhampton Wanderers, coming through the youth ranks before signing professional forms for the 1999–2000 season, he made his First Division debut on 23 December 2000, replacing Darren Bazeley 82 minutes into a 1–0 win over Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.

However he did not feature in new manager Dave Jones's first team plans, so was allowed to join John Taylor's Cambridge United on a free transfer in November 2001. He scored his first senior goal at the Abbey Stadium in the FA Cup on 17 November 2001, in a 1–1 draw with Notts County, he scored four goals in 36 appearances in the 2001–02 season, however Cambridge were relegated after finishing bottom of the Second Division. Despite this record they managed to reach the final of the Football League Trophy at the Millennium Stadium, where they lost 4–1 to Blackpool. In November 2002 he signed a contract with the club which kept him with Cambridge until the summer of 2005, he scored ten goals in 34 games in 2002–03, as Cambridge posted a 12th-place finish in the Third Division. He played 40 games in scoring three goals, as United dropped a place to 13th. Tudor scored seven goals in 28 games in 2004–05 to become the club's joint top-scorer, it was a disappointing end to his Cambridge career though, as the club entered administration and were relegated into the Conference National after finishing bottom of the Football League.

Tudor started looking for another club. He signed for Leyton Orient on a two-year deal. Despite undergoing groin surgery in December, suffering ankle problems towards the end of the season, he scored five goals in 29 games from his right-wing position to help the club to promotion from League Two, his ankle injury needed surgery, though the operation was a success and saw him enjoy a return to form. His second season in the capital saw Orient retain their League One status with Tudor the main fixture on the right-wing, playing 36 times and scoring twice. At the end of the 2006–07 campaign he was released, after he informed "O's" boss Martin Ling that he would not be signing a new contract as he wanted to move back to his Midlands roots. In May 2007, he signed for fellow League One side Port Vale on a two-year contract, he struggled to maintain his place in the side, only making 14 league appearances in his first season, as well as being sent out on loan to Shrewsbury Town, where he failed to make any appearances at all due to a hamstring injury.

This was a disappointment for Tudor as he had hoped to make the move permanent, he told the Shropshire Star "I'll be back". He caused controversy on 20 September 2008, when after a 4–1 defeat to Macclesfield Town at Vale Park he was quoting as saying "No disrespect to them, but they're a shit club. Look at the size of us to them and it's a million miles away." He apologised to the club, saying that he had been "disappointed and angry" to have been limited to a late cameo appearance in the game, though stood by his belief that Port Vale were a bigger club than Macclesfield. It was against Shrewsbury Town at the New Meadow on 11 October 2008, where Tudor sustained a knee injury, he underwent surgery which proved unsuccessful, he retired from professional football in January 2009, aged just 26. He stated his ambition to go into management and said "It would be nice to come back and manage Port Vale one day." After being forced to retire from football he graduated with a degree in sports journalist from Staffordshire University in 2011, two years founded the Sporting Stars Academy in Stoke-on-Trent with former teammate Robin Hulbert.
