85 editions published between 1882 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since it first appeared in 1961, this has been the standard critical edition of Ovid's love poems. For this new edition, the text has been thoroughly revised to take account of published scholarship and the further thoughts of the editor. Conjectures have been admitted to both text and apparatus criticus more freely than in the first edition. Punctuation has been improved, spelling has been normalized and the long poems have been paragraphed. The apparatus criticus now incorporates the readings of the important Berlin manuscript Hamilton 471 and such other readings formerly reported in the appendix of minor variants (now omitted) as are of critical significance; it has also been streamlined by the omission of explanatory material more conveniently accessible in commentaries
Sorrows of an exile by Ovid( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Italian and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Affirmation. Both directly and, as befitted the Roman Callimachus, allusively, Ovid repeatedly asserts, often with a wit and irony that borders on defiance, his conviction of the injustice of his sentence and of the pre-eminence of the eternal values of poetry over the ephemeral dictates of an earthly power. These elegies are throughout informed by Ovid's awareness of a continuing pride in his poetic identity and mission. In technical skill and inventiveness, they rank

" ... tells the tale of a certain Lucius, a young man who -- rather like his creator -- leads an itinerant life full of action and incident which ultimately lands him in trouble. His curiosity to discover the secrets of witchcraft (the biographical echoes continue) results in his metamorphosis into an ass. The novel then follows its unfortunate hero through a series of largely bruising, humiliating and hilarious exploits until he is restored to human form through the intervention of the goddess Isis."--Publisher's website

De rerum natura by Titus Lucretius Carus( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Latin and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The third book of Lucretius' great poem on the workings of the universe is devoted entirely to expounding the implications of Epicurus' dictum that death does not matter, 'is nothing to us'. The soul is not immortal: it no more exists after the dissolution of the body than it had done before its birth. Only if this fact is accepted can men rid themselves of irrational fears and achieve the state of ataraxia, freedom from mental disturbance, on which the Epicurean definition of pleasure was based. To present this case Lucretius deploys the full range of poetic and rhetorical registers, soberly prohibitive, artfully decorative or passionately emotive as best suits his argument, reinforcing it with vivid and compelling imagery. This new edition has been completely revised, with a considerably enlarged Commentary and a new supplementary introduction taking account of the great amount of new scholarship of the last forty years
