Virgil by Virgil( Book )

11 editions published between 1916 and 2000 in English and Latin and held by 601 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VIRGIL (Publius Vergilius Maro), was born in 70 B.C. near Mantua and was educated at Cremona, Milan and Rome. Slow in speech, shy in manner, thoughtful in mind, weak in health, he went back north for a quiet life. Influenced by the group of poets there, he may have written some of the doubtful poems included in our Virgilian manuscripts. All his undoubted extant work is written in his perfect hexameters. Earliest comes the collection of ten pleasingly artificial bucolic poems, the Eclogues, which imitated freely Theocritus' idylls. They deal with the pastoral life and love. Before 29 B.C. came one of the best of all didactic works, the four books of Georgics on tillage, trees, cattle, bees. Virgil's remaining years were spent in composing his great, not wholly finished, epic the Aeneid, on the traditional theme of Rome's origins through Aeneas of Troy. Inspired by the Emperor Augustus' rule, the poem is Homeric in metre and method but influenced by later Greek and Roman literature, philosophy and learning, and deeply Roman in spirit. Virgil died in 19 B.C. in Greece, where he intended to round off the Aeneid. He had left in Rome a request that all its twelve books should be destroyed if he were to die then, but they were published by the executors of his will
Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )

74 editions published between 1885 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 566 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

Minor Latin poets by J. Wight Duff( Book )

4 editions published between 1934 and 2015 in English and held by 216 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.
