These poems, translations of work that does not otherwise exist, are intended to fill the invented or actual lacunae... more...

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 36.95 US$ 29.56

    The Roman poet Propertius is best known as the writer who perfected the Latin love elegy, a technical as much as a psychological and cultural feat.

Many of the poems here pay tribute to Cynthia, Propertius's romantic obsession, but the scope of these... more...

  • The Complete Odes and Satires of Horaceby Horace; Sidney Alexander

    Horace has long been revered as the supreme lyric poet of the Augustan Age.

  • Selected Poems of Solomon Ibn Gabirolby Solomon Ibn Gabirol; Peter Cole

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 32.95 US$ 26.36

Unlike his worldly predecessor Shmuel HaNagid, the first important poet of the period,... more...
