The satires, epistles, and art of poetry of Horace by Horace( Book )

22 editions published between 1870 and 2006 in English and held by 93 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In venturing to follow up my translation of the Odes of Horace by a version of the Satires and Epistles, I feel that I am in no way entitled to refer to the former as a justification of my boldness in undertaking the latter. Both classes of works are doubtless explicable as products of the same original genius: but they differ so widely in many of their characteristics, that success in rendering the one, though greater than any which I can hope to have attained, would afford no presumption that the translator would be found to have the least aptitude for the other

Conington's English translation of the poetry of Vergil

Virgil's epic poem describing the fall of Troy, in English blank verse by Robert Fitzgerald
Satires by Persius( Book )

21 editions published between 1874 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the ancient world, the Satires belonged to a small class of works which remained in constant circulation. They were read in the schools, were commented upon by scholars, and were forever the subject of controversy. This translation boasts several advantages over previous English versions : it is the work of a poet rather than a Latinist, and it offers a faithful rendering of Persius' franker passages which the Victorians never dared to translate fully
The Aeneid by Virgil( Book )

12 editions published between 1878 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Full of betrayal, heartache, seduction, elation, and violence, the Aeneid is the great founding epic of the Roman empire. Its pages speak of the Roman vision of self, the Roman ideal of what it meant to be a citizen of the world's greatest power
Choephori by Aeschylus( Book )

8 editions published in 1857 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Virgil's first work is comprised of ten pastoral poems, in which the rustic life is celebrated through the conversations of amiable shepherds

Agamemnon makes a powerful impact on most audiences, even if they are unacquainted with the techniques of Aeschylean tragedy. Its subject is the human condition in its widest aspect
