Latin Lyric and Elegiac Poetry, first published almost 25 years ago, offered students accurate and poetic translations of poems from the sudden flowering of lyric and elegy in Rome at the end of the Republic and in the first decades of the Augustan principate. Now updated in this second edition, the volume has been re-edited with both revised and new translations and an updated commentary and bibliography for readers in a new century, ensuring that this much-valued anthology remains useful and relevant to a new generation of students studying ancient literature and western civilization. The volume features an expanded selection of newly translated poetry including:

  • fresh Catullus translations, with a greater selection including Poem 64
  • fresh Sulpicia translations and the five poems of the "Garland of Sulpicia"
  • six new Propertius poems
  • new and revised selections from Tibullus, Ovid and Horace.

The second edition reflects changing interests and modes of reading while remaining true to the power of the poetry that has influenced the literature of many cultures. The combination of accurate and vibrant translations with thorough commentary makes this an invaluable anthology for those interested in poetry, world literature, Roman civilization, and the history of ideas and sexuality, allowing readers to compare different poets' responses to politics, love and sex, literary innovation, self, and society.

"This revised volume is now an even more valuable resource for anyone wanting to teach Latin lyric and elegiac poetry in translation. The translations are accurate and reliable, and with the expanded coverage of poems, instructors have more choice about which authors and poems to read. The notes are detailed and rich in useful information about the ancient context and original language and have been updated to take account of shifts in the scholarship. The addition of a list of secondary readings for each poet will aid students writing papers. The quality and combination of features make this an outstanding choice."
