Elegies / Propertius ; edited and translated by G.P. Goold by Sextus Propertius( Book )
32 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 871 libraries worldwide
The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius (c. 50-soon after 16 BCE) gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. He portrays the uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and also tells us much about the society of his time, then in later poems turns to the legends of ancient Rome

Virgil by Virgil( Book )
12 editions published between 1916 and 2000 in English and Latin and held by 601 libraries worldwide
Virgil (70-19 BCE) was a poet of immense virtuosity and influence. His Eclogues deal with bucolic life and love, his Georgics with tillage, trees, cattle, and bees. His Aeneid is an epic on the theme of Rome's origins. Poems of the Appendix Vergiliana are traditionally, but in most cases probably wrongly, attributed to Virgil
Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )
74 editions published between 1885 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 566 libraries worldwide
Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, begins with an account of celestial phenomena, and then proceeds to treat of the signs of the zodiac and the twelve temples; there follow instructions for calculating the horoscoping degree, and details of chronocrators, decans, injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, and other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams in verse form, the poet writes with some passion about his Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour in his character sketches of persons born under particular stars. Perhaps taking a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable length. In spite of its undoubted elegance, the Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides in addition to the first English prose translation a full guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and illustrative figures.-- jacket
Catullus by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )
33 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 556 libraries worldwide
Catullus (84-54BCE) couples consummate poetic artistry with intensity of feeling. Tibullus (c. 54-19 BCE) proclaims love for "Delia" and "Nemesis" in elegy. The beautiful verse of the Pervigilium Veneris (fourth century CE?) celebrates a spring festival in honour of the goddess of love
Ovid. Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )
15 editions published between 1916 and 1994 in English and Latin and held by 552 libraries worldwide
In his most influential work, the Metamorphoses, Ovid (43 BCE-17 CE) weaves a hexametric whole from a huge range of myths, which are connected by the theme of change and ingeniously linked as the narrative proceeds from earliest creation to transformation in Ovid's own time
The art of love and other poems by Ovid( Book )
28 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 494 libraries worldwide
In the didactic poetry of Face Cosmetics, Art of Love, and Remedies for Love, Ovid (43 BCE-17 CE) demonstrates abstrusity and wit. His Ibis is an elegiac curse-poem. Nux, Halieutica, and Consolatio ad Liviam are poems now judged not to be by Ovid
Tristia ; Ex Ponto by Ovid( Book )
31 editions published between 1924 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 462 libraries worldwide
In the melancholy elegies of the Tristia and the Ex Ponto, Ovid (43 BCE-17 CE) writes as from exile in Tomis on the Black sea, appealing to such people as his wife and the emperor

Minor Latin poets by J. Wight Duff( Book )
4 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in English and held by 217 libraries worldwide
MINOR LATIN POETS. This anthology covers a period of four and a half centuries, beginning with the work of the mime-writer Publilius Syrus who flourished c. 45 B.C. and ending with the graphic and charming poem of Rutilius Namatianus recording a sea-voyage from Rome to Gaul in A.D. 416. A wide variety of themes gives interest to the poems - hunting in a poem of Grattius, an inquiry into the causes of volcanic activity by the author of Aetna, pastoral poems by Calpurnius Siculus and by Nemesianus, fables by Avianus, a collection of Dicta, moral sayings, as if by the elder Cato, eulogy in Laus Pisonis, and the legend of the Phoenix, a poem of the fourth century. Other poets complete the work
