Martial, the father of the epigram, was one of the brilliant provincial poets who made their literary mark on first-century Rome.

Helen by Ronald K. S Euripides( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Outstepping the literal bounds of genre, this work has been referred to by scholars as both a tragedy and a comedy. This translation attempts to preserve Euripides' structure of subtlety and his comments on both the futility of war and the distinction between appearance and reality
Thomas Heywood's Art of love : the first complete English translation of Ovid's Ars amatoria by Ovid( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the first century a.d., Ovid, author of the groundbreaking epic poem Metamorphoses, came under severe criticism for The Art of Love, which playfully instructed women in the art of seduction and men in the skills essential for mastering the art of romantic conquest. In this remarkable translation, James Michie breathes new life into the notorious Roman's mock-didactic elegy. In lyrical, irreverent English, he reveals love's timeless dilemmas and Ovid's enduring brilliance as both poet and cultural critic. From the Trade Paperback edition

Epigrams by Martial( Book )

18 editions published between 1973 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was to celebrate the opening of the Roman Colosseum in A.D. 80 that Martial published his first book of poems, "On the Spectacles." Written with satiric wit and a talent for the memorable phrase, the poems in this collection record the broad spectacle of shows in the new arena. The great Latin epigrammist's twelve subsequent books capture the spirit of Roman life - both public and private - in vivid detail. Fortune hunters and busybodies, orators and lawyers, schoolmasters and street hawkers, jugglers and acrobats, doctors and plagiarists, beautiful slaves, and generous hosts are among the diverse characters who populate his verses. Martial is a keen and sharp-tongued observer of Roman Society. His pen brings into crisp relief a wide variety of scenes and events: the theater and public games, life in the countryside, a rich debauchee's banquet, lions in the amphitheater, the eruption of Vesuvius. The epigrams are sometimes obscene, in the tradition of the genre, sometimes warmly affectionate or amusing, and always pointed. Like his contemporary Statius, though, Martial shamelessly flatters his patron Domitian, one of Rome's worst-reputed emperors. D.R. Shackleton Bailey now gives us in three volumes, a reliable modern translation of Martial's often difficult Latin, eliminating many misunderstandings in previous versions. The text is mainly that of his highly praised Teubner edition of 1990
The complete Odes and Satires of Horace by Horace( Book )

11 editions published between 1963 and 2002 in English and Latin and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Timeless meditations on the subjects of wine, parties, birthdays, love, and friendship, Horace's Odes, in the words of classicist Donald Carne-Ross, make the "commonplace notable, even luminous." This edition reproduces the highly lauded translation by James Michie. "For almost forty years," poet and literary critic John Hollander notes, "James Michie's brilliant translations of Horace have remained fresh as well as strong, and responsive to the varying lights and darks of the originals. It is a pleasure to have them newly available."--Publisher description
