it was amazing
bookshelves: greek-and-roman-classics, poetry
Read in February, 2012

I think the Intro explained well enough the background to understand what are at times allusive poems. The many references to Roman figures and gods can make absorbing many of the poems difficult. The Notes do a good job though. His take on meter is good, but because he's translating into English do we really need a lesson on Latin meter?

Liam I forgot to add that I enjoyed the translations and felt he did a great job with the longer poems, especially 64.
