Review quote

""Latin Lyric and Elegiac Poetry more than meets a long-standing need of both students and general readers for a book that provides translations that are at once accurate, readable, and vivid of one of Western literature's most influential and most brilliant flowering seasons. In addition to translations that are uniformly superior, this volume boasts a state-of-the art introduction that will not go out of fashion and notes that are copious, lucid and unobtrusive. The book has no competitors and is not likely to have any for a very long time."-W.R. Johnson, Classics Department, The University of Chicago "An unusually useful and attractive selection of the Latin poetry which has been so influential on literature in many languages....This book should be required supplementary reading in all courses in English poetry from the 16th through the early 19th centuries."-John Hollander, A. Bartlett Giamatti Professor of English, Yale University "Fills a market niche for courses on Latin literature. College libraries and non-Latinate poetry lovers will profit from a rendezvous with the often jilted, Roman personal poets."-Choice "This new book, given the quality of its parts and as a whole, deserves its place in undergraduate classrooms, in the homes of both general readers and scholars, and in public and academic libraries-it will be a welcome addition to all."-Bryn Mawr Classical Reviewshow more
