Abstract:

In Propertius: Poet of Love and Leisure, Alison Keith explores Propertius'' elegiac poetry in the context of early imperial Roman society. Examining a variety of themes associated with both Propertian poetics (such genre theory, poetic models, the girlfriend, the rival) and the poet''s social context within the early Augustan principate (such as Roman imperialism, the elite male cursus honorum, Augustus'' building projects) she offers a synthetic overview of Propertius'' achievement in his four books of elegies. She considers the neglected relationship of rhetoric to Propertian elegiac poetics.
