Horace Gregory's poems ... are among the finest of our time. What gives them a distinctive quality for me is the beautiful sense of the past I find in them, that is Gregory's sense of history. His poems are not images spun from himself in single thought; in them the poet lends his voice to voices long silent. He can repeople a neighborhood, or show us the Medusa-face in Gramercy Park; and he can also walk with Emerson or listen to Goethe. In him the poetic imagination lives harmoniously with the imagination of history. This gives singular force and largeness to Gregory's work. --Leon Edel
The poems of Catullus by Gaius Valerius Catullus ( Book )
9 editions published between 1931 and 1972 in English and Latin and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Horace Gregory's twentieth-century English version of Catullus' poems is a rare book of its kind in contemporary poetry. M.L. Rosenthal says of it: "By escaping the limitations of 'Anglo-classical' convention, and by employing newer techniques, Gregory did succeed in coming closer to Catullus' poetic personality than earlier translators ... in addition to his direct, lucid style, the 'irregular' forms he used enable him to cut his cloth to fit the originals' ... The present edition has a newly written introduction which contains a brief critical biography and an account of how a twentieth-century of the poems came to be written. --Grove Press [from the library of Elizabeth Ballantyne]
Helen in Egypt by H. D ( Book )
8 editions published between 1961 and 1985 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Poems by Gaius Valerius Catullus ( Book )
4 editions published in 1956 in English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection contains all of Catullus's extant work. Ranging from the tender, moving, and passionate to the vicious and even obscene, these are poems of astonishingly modern force and content. The lively translation by Peter Whigham re-creates the dexterity, passion, and perception of the original. --Penguin Books
The metamorphoses; a complete new version by Ovid ( Book )
6 editions published between 1958 and 1967 in English and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Metamorphoses or Transformations of Ovid was completed at Rome in the year 8 AD, which also was the year that the Emperor Augustus sent its author into retirement far away from Rome. It can be said that the Metamorphoses, written at the beginning of the Christian era, was the last long-sustained major work of a great age in Latin poetry, and it was also evidence of a peculiarly Italian genius which places it at a middle distance away from the Aeneid, since it was not a true and heroic epic, toward the novellas of Bandello and the lyricism of Petrarch. - Introduction
