The poems of Propertius by Sextus Propertius( Book )

618 editions published between 1472 and 2020 in 11 languages and held by 3,389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The romantic poems of Propertius, written over 2000 years ago, still appeal to readers today. His helpless infatuation for his sinister mistress Cynthia is the main subject of his poetry and is analyzed with a tormented but witty grandeur in all its changing moods, from ecstasy to suicidal despair

Elegies / Propertius ; edited and translated by G.P. Goold by Sextus Propertius( Book )

3 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 816 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. Here he portrays the exciting, uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and tells us much about his contemporaries and the society in which he lives, while in later poems he turns to mythological themes and the legends of early Rome. In this new edition of Propertius, G.P. Goold solves some long-standing questions of interpretation and gives us a faithful and stylish prose translation. His explanatory notes and glossary-index offer steady guidance and a wealth of information. Born in Assisi about 50 B.C., Sextus Propertius moved as a young man to Rome, where he came into contact with a coterie of poets, including Virgil, Tibullus, Horace, and Ovid. Publication of his first book brought immediate recognition and the unwavering support of Maecenas, the influential patron of the Augustan poets. He died perhaps in his mid-thirties, leaving us four books of elegies that have attracted admirers throughout the ages

"The text of Propertius is one of the worst transmitted of the classical Latin authors; many critical editions have been conservative, however, and they are frequently unreadable as a result. This new Oxford Classical Text is the first to make full use in the apparatus of the important discoveries made by J.L. Butrica."--Jacket

19 editions published between 1961 and 2002 in English and Latin and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Propertius' celebration of his love for Cynthia broke new ground in Latin poetry; sensuous, passionate, witty, yet complex and allusive. The appeal of his 'Monobiblos' (Book l) is direct and immediate but his profound grasp of the violent and contradictory emotions of the relationship pushed his language into new areas and new forms. Thus he is a difficult and important poet, with the kind of difficulty that appeals to modern readers." "This edition is designed to serve two different kinds of reader. For those who are not Latin specialists there is an elegant but literal translation alongside the Latin text, with a critical essay on each poem to lead the reader into the richness of the Latin. On the other hand Latinists will find here new light on the text itself. Above all, the edition is dedicated to reading poetry as poetry."--BOOK JACKET

Charm by Sextus Propertius( Book )

3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Propertius' great love was a woman he called Cynthia in his poems (although her real name may have been Hostia), and it is his first-person account of their tempestuous relationship that forms the first and second books of his poetry. Using a colloquial and, at times, jaunty everyday language, New York poet Vincent Katz captures the spirit of the original and breathes fresh air into Propertius' painfully obsessive lyrics
