First published in 1962, this book is the first of two volumes which bridge the gap between the study of classics and the study of literature and attempt to reconcile the two disciplines. Focusing on elegy and lyric, this collection of essays offers a critical examination of Latin literature and aims to stimulate critical discussion of a selection of Latin poets.
This experimental and ground-breaking book will be of particular interest to students of Roman Literature, Classics and Poetry.
