Most widely held works by L. P Wilkinson
Horace & his lyric poetry by L. P Wilkinson( Book )

85 editions published between 1944 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L.P. Wilkinson writes primarily for students of the classics who are not Horation specialists. His book falls easily within the scope of those who can read any Latin at all -- and even of those who cannot, for most passages quoted are also translated. Horace is viewed as the poet of the Odes and Epodes -- the incomparable genius of the lyric form, and a sympathetic and engaging character. Like most Roman poets, Horace was not inventive in subject-matter -- rather it is the manner of his writing, his mastery of form, rhythm and cadence that have charmed and captivated his readers for centuries. This is the aspect of Horace that is studied here, with much grace and insight, with profound and liberal scholarship, and with a readily communicated affection."--Bloomsbury Publishing
The Georgics of Virgil: a critical survey by L. P Wilkinson( Book )

47 editions published between 1969 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the author's view, the 'Georgics' is far from being tediously didactic; on the contrary, it is vividly descriptive, the first poem in all literature in which description is the chief source of pleasure, a poem written not so much to teach farmers as to delight readers. And it is more than simply this. It is concerned with a way of life, it is infused with deep personal feeling and philosophical purpose, and it is overlaid with a rich texture of religious, political and symbolic motifs. This book is a critical analysis of the poem in all these dimensions

Ovid recalled by L. P Wilkinson( Book )

39 editions published between 1955 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If you ask anyone whether he likes Ovid, the chances are that he will reply that he did not care for what he read of him at school and has read nothing since. Further inquiry may elicit the fact that he was introduced to him by way of selections from the Heroides or Fasti or Tristia, works which have this in common, that they are not 'unsuitable' for schoolboys. And in a wider sense also there is, I venture to think, a case for offering our generation a reintroduction. For nearly two centuries Ovid has been out of fashion. -- Introduction
