Abstract:

"Love is a universal theme in Classical poetry. From the first stirrings of passion to the torture of unrequited love, from the lifelong bond between husband and wife to the pain of being left behind, the subjects differ little from our preoccupations with love and romance today." "This collection takes the best from Greek and Roman poetry, with excerpts from Homer, Sappho, Catullus, Virgil and Ovid, to name but a few, and illustrates them with some of the finest examples of Classical and later European art. With a brief introduction to the poems, and a short biographical note about each poet, this is the perfect introduction to the treasures of Classical literature and art."--Jacket.
