The Complete Elegies of Sextus Propertius

Sextus Propertius, Author, Vincent Katz, Translator Princeton University Press $64 (467p) ISBN 978-0-691-11581-8
Perhaps more immediate than Ezra Pound's ""Homage..."" are The Complete Elegies of Sextus Propertius himself, in Latin and translated by veteran poet and translator Vincent Katz (Understanding Objects), who also provides an introduction. The Roman poet, who lived from 50 to 16 B.C.E, is here in all his suggestive glory (""The girl alone erects my genius""), articulating an empiric era that feels closer than ever.
