Latin Literature (Penguin Classics)

Latin Literature (Penguin Classics)


A vintage creation to Latin literature, with translations of the easiest passages from Virgil, Livy, Ovid, Seneca and plenty of others.

This vintage anthology lines the improvement of Latin literature from the early Republican works of Cicero and Catullus, to the writers of the Empire corresponding to Lucan and Petronius, to the later writings of St Augustine. the choices disguise comedy and epic, background and philosophy, in prose and in verse, and every passage is prefaced by means of an advent to the writer and his effect. The translators diversity throughout historical past from Alexander Pope and Lord Byron to contemporaries. the result's a huge and impressive evaluation of the civilization of Rome and its Empire--an excellent advent to Latin literature.
