about this item

The text and notes can guide any student who has mastered intermediate Latin and wishes to read a selection of love elegies by Propertius, Tibullus, and Ovid in the original, but Nikkanen particularly has in mind supporting students who are reading elegies in preparation for the British awarding body OCR's AS or A level Latin examination. The selections provide a representative introduction to the genre of Latin love elegy and its conventions, she says, as well as to the different styles of the three authors and their different approaches to celebrating the beloved. She includes an introduction to the genre and the poets, summaries of the poems, a glossary of rhetorical device, a note on metre, and a vocabulary of Latin words.
