Most widely held works by G. P Goold
Callirhoe by Chariton( Book )

29 editions published between 1994 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,001 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

Virgil by Virgil( Book )

28 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in English and Latin and held by 813 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For this revised edition of the Loeb Classical Library's Virgil, G. P. Goold has corrected the text in accord with recent scholarship, revised the translation to reflect current idiom, and supplied a new introduction and explanatory notes. Fairclough's edition, long a faithful standard, has thus been thoroughly updated
Elegies / Propertius ; edited and translated by G.P. Goold by Sextus Propertius( Book )

4 editions published between 1990 and 1999 in English and held by 810 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
Metamorphoses by Ovid( Book )

46 editions published between 1916 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 724 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
Astronomica by Marcus Manilius( Book )

72 editions published between 1885 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 635 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

26 editions published between 1962 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 538 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Catullus by Gaius Valerius Catullus( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ovid's Fasti by Ovid( Book )

30 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BCE-17 CE), born at Sulmo, studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Amatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. Ovid's main surviving works are the Metamorphoses, a source of inspiration to artists and poets including Chaucer and Shakespeare; the Fasti, a poetic treatment of the Roman year of which Ovid finished only half; the Amores, love poems; the Ars Amatoria, not moral but clever and in parts beautiful; Heroides, fictitious love letters by legendary women to absent husbands; and the dismal works written in exile: the Tristia, appeals to persons including his wife and also the emperor; and similar Epistulae ex Ponto. Poetry came naturally to Ovid, who at his best is lively, graphic and lucid. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Ovid is in six volumes

Minor Latin poets : in two volumes by J. Wight Duff( Book )

3 editions published between 1934 and 1982 in English and held by 306 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.

12 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Loeb Classical Library edition of Virgil, long a standard, has now been thoroughly updated. Retaining the excellence of H.R. Fairclough's "heroic prose" translation, but pruning away its archaisms, G.P. Goold gives us in this Revised Edition an improved reading of the great Roman poet that reflects current idiom. Goold has also amended the Latin text and apparatus to take account of recent scholarship and provides a new general Introduction and explanatory notes. In his introduction to the Appendix Vergiliana he discusses the provenance and attribution of these poems traditionally ascribed to Virgil and previously collected as his "Minor Poems."
