published by Macmillian in 1964, this volume is designed to introduce students to a wider range of Latin
poetry than they would encounter in a simple author prescription. The first
century BC is represented by Lucretius and Catullus, the Augustan era by
Virgil, Horace and Ovid, and the Silver age by Juvenal and Martial. Passages
are chosen for their own intrinsic interest - Ovid on Romulus and Remus,
Juvenal on the dangers of Rome at night, the sheild of Aeneas from Virgil
Aeneid VIII; they cover a wide variety of genres and styles - both
Satires and Odes of Horace, elegiacs from the Fasti and hexameters from the
Metamorphoses of Ovid. There are extensive notes on language and content, an
introduction on metre and a full vocabulary.
