Virgil by Virgil( Book )

145 editions published between 1874 and 2000 in 5 languages and held by 2,735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VIRGIL (Publius Vergilius Maro), greatest of Roman poets, was a countryman's son born in 70 B.C. at Andes near Mantua and was educated at Verona, Milan and Rome. Slow in speech, shy in manner, thoughtful in mind, weak in health, he went back to northern Italy 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, but allude also to Virgil's (temporary?) loss of his home by confiscation. Most famous is the mysterious fourth eclogue anticipating a return to the Golden Age. Before 29 B.C. came one of the best of all didactic works, the four books of Georgics on tillage, trees, cattle, bees - a splendid product of a countryman-poet. Virgil's remaining years were spent in composing his great, now wholly finished, epic the Aeneid, inspired by the Emperor Augustus' rule: if not by Augustus himself, on the traditional theme of Rome's origins through Aeneas of Troy - a poem Homeric in metre and method but influenced by later Greek and Roman literature, philosophy and learning; and deeply Roman in spirit, in feeling national not personal. Virgil died in Greece in 19 B.C., intending 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

P. Terenti Afri Andria by Publius Terentius Afer( Book )

16 editions published between 1901 and 1904 in English and Latin and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Terence's comedies are adaptations from Greek New Comedy, which flourished in Athens at the end of the fourth century and in the first half of the third, and was so called to distinguish it from the Old Comedy of the fifth century, and the Middle Comedy, a less important transition stage between the two. Old and New Comedy are two totally different dramatic forms, reflecting the different conditions of life in the two periods
Aeneid, 7-12 ; appendix Vergiliana by Virgil( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Latin and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil (Publius Vergilius Maro) was born in 70 BCE 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's idylls. They deal with pastoral life and love. Before 29 BCE came one of the best of all didactic works, the four books of Georgics on tillage, trees, cattle, and 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's rule, the poem is Homeric in metre and method but influenced also by later Greek and Roman literature, philosophy, and learning, and deeply Roman in spirit. Virgil died in 19 BCE at Brundisium on his way home from Greece, where he had 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. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Virgil is in two volumes
Three comedies by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

13 editions published between 1909 and 1936 in Latin and English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The special genius of the Roman comic poet Plautus is the wedding of native Italian farce with the mature and polished constructions of Greek comedy. The three plays translated in this book all contain that almost inevitable kernel of Greek comic plot: the love affair. But they have little else in common. In the first, a self-inflating soldier tries to live up to his image of himself as a lover. In the second, a beautiful maiden is rescued from an evil pimp. And in the third, an ill-starred husband fancies himself in love with his wife's young housemaid. Clever, or at least ambitious, slaves tend to move the action, in which the rudeness of farce merges with exuberant wit, satire, and parody

Satires. Epistles. the Art of Poetry by Horace( )

4 editions published between 1926 and 2015 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poetry of Horace (born 65 BCE) is richly varied, its focus moving between public and private concerns, urban and rural settings, Stoic and Epicurean thought. In the Satires Horace mocks himself as well as the world. His verse epistles include the Art of Poetry, in which he famously expounds his literary theory. Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 65-8 BCE) was born at Venusia, son of a freedman clerk who had him well educated at Rome and Athens. Horace supported the ill-fated killers of Caesar, lost his property, became a secretary in the Treasury, and began to write poetry. Maecenas, lover of literature, to whom Virgil and Varius introduced Horace in 39, became his friend and made him largely independent by giving him a farm. After 30 Horace knew and aided with his pen the emperor Augustus, who after Virgil's death in 19 engaged him to celebrate imperial affairs in poetry. Horace refused to become Augustus's private secretary and died a few months after Maecenas. Both lyric (in various metres) and other work (in hexameters) was spread over the period 40-10 or 9 BCE. It is Roman in spirit, Greek in technique. In the two books of Satires Horace is a moderate social critic and commentator; the two books of Epistles are more intimate and polished, the second book being literary criticism as is also the Ars Poetica. The Epodes in various (mostly iambic) metres are akin to the "discourses" (as Horace called his satires and epistles) but also look towards the famous Odes, in four books, in the old Greek lyric metres used with much skill. Some are national odes about public affairs; some are pleasant poems of love and wine; some are moral letters; all have a rare perfection. The Loeb Classical Library edition of the Odes and Epodes is in volume number 33

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.
