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

32 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 868 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius (c. 50-soon after 16 BCE) gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. He portrays the uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and also tells us much about the society of his time, then in later poems turns to the legends of ancient Rome
Callirhoe by Chariton( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chariton's Callirhoe, subtitled "Love Story in Syracuse," is the oldest extant novel. It is a fast-paced historical romance with ageless charm. Chariton narrates the adventures of a strikingly beautiful young bride named Callirhoe, beginning with her abduction by pirates - adventures that take her as far as the court of the Persian king Artaxerxes and involve shipwrecks, several ardent suitors, an embarrassing pregnancy, the hazards of war, and a happy ending. Animated dialogue captures dramatic situations, and the novelist takes us on picturesque travels. His skill makes us enthralled spectators of plots and counter-plots, at trials and a crucifixion, inside a harem, among the admiring crowd at weddings, and at battles on land and sea. This enchanting tale is here made available for the first time in an English translation facing the Greek text. In his Introduction G.P. Goold establishes the book's date in the first century A.D. and relates it to other ancient fiction

44 editions published between 1913 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil by Virgil( Book )

9 editions published in 1934 in English and Latin and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil (70-19 BCE) was a poet of immense virtuosity and influence. His Eclogues deal with bucolic life and love, his Georgics with tillage, trees, cattle, and bees. His Aeneid is an epic on the theme of Rome's origins. Poems of the Appendix Vergiliana are traditionally, but in most cases probably wrongly, attributed to Virgil
Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )

74 editions published between 1885 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Astronomica, a Latin didactic poem in five books, begins with an account of celestial phenomena, and then proceeds to treat of the signs of the zodiac and the twelve temples; there follow instructions for calculating the horoscoping degree, and details of chronocrators, decans, injurious degrees, zodiacal geography, paranatellonta, and other technical matters. Besides exhibiting great virtuosity in rendering mathematical tables and diagrams in verse form, the poet writes with some passion about his Stoic beliefs and shows much wit and humour in his character sketches of persons born under particular stars. Perhaps taking a lead from Virgil in his Georgics, Manilius abandons the proportions of his last book to narrate the story of Perseus and Andromeda at considerable length. In spite of its undoubted elegance, the Astronomica is a difficult work, and this edition provides in addition to the first English prose translation a full guide to the poem, with copious explanatory notes and illustrative figures.-- jacket

16 editions published between 1916 and 1994 in English and Latin and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his most influential work, the Metamorphoses, Ovid (43 BCE-17 CE) weaves a hexametric whole from a huge range of myths, which are connected by the theme of change and ingeniously linked as the narrative proceeds from earliest creation to transformation in Ovid's own time
Catullus by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )

23 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catullus (84-54BCE) couples consummate poetic artistry with intensity of feeling. Tibullus (c. 54-19 BCE) proclaims love for "Delia" and "Nemesis" in elegy. The beautiful verse of the Pervigilium Veneris (fourth century CE?) celebrates a spring festival in honour of the goddess of love

Minor Latin poets by J. Wight Duff( Book )

4 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

MINOR LATIN POETS. This anthology covers a period of four and a half centuries, beginning with the work of the mime-writer Publilius Syrus who flourished c. 45 B.C. and ending with the graphic and charming poem of Rutilius Namatianus recording a sea-voyage from Rome to Gaul in A.D. 416. A wide variety of themes gives interest to the poems - hunting in a poem of Grattius, an inquiry into the causes of volcanic activity by the author of Aetna, pastoral poems by Calpurnius Siculus and by Nemesianus, fables by Avianus, a collection of Dicta, moral sayings, as if by the elder Cato, eulogy in Laus Pisonis, and the legend of the Phoenix, a poem of the fourth century.
