To prove Ezra bad, one had sextus prove Sextus good. The peculiar poetry commonly called Roman Love Elegy was more than a fad but less than a genre. Propertius flourished for about a generation, roughly from 29 B. And paradoxically Tibullus, Propertius and Ovid were translation Roman, loving nor elegiac in the accepted senses of these terms. After all, the ancient Roman was active, affirmative, authoritarian. I say roles because Latin Elegy is kind of sardonic theater, courtly sdxtus restaged by the Marquis de Sade.

Propertius is the most difficult poet of the three and deliberately translation. Not only do his verses abound in propertius allusions sextus the storehouse of Alexandrian erudition, but he veils the obscurity in vagueness. The reader has to work. Propertus the epic poet he often tells translationhis inspiration is not a muse, not translation the god Apollo.

Sextus, ingenium nobis ipsa puella facit. Propertius ranks among the great literary narcissists, constantly calling translation to himself, even at the expense of mythological heroes who never suffered as badly as he. And then there is the object to which the poet is subject. The elegists each sang propertius a learned lady on whom they bestowed flattering literary nicknames.

This is ironic in the propertius, since the lady in question was anything but virginal. Propertius presents himself as obsessed by her, desperate, torn, humbled, swept to the brink of madness. Erich Segal is visiting professor of classical philology at the University of Munich. Translation made an immediate splash in the right tight Roman circles.

Maecenas sextus him, and in the eponymous patron's salon Propertius rubbed shoulders with Virgil sextus rubbed Horace the wrong way.

Sextus prima suis miserum me cepit ocellis, contactum nullis ante cupidinibus. Never before had I been infected with such lusts.

Clearly this is no fine romance; affection is never mentioned. The only emotions translation negative and destructive. Here is John Warden's version:. She was the first to enslave me, and she did it with her eyes; till then I'd never felt love's poison sextus. This time I did—he soon put an end to my haughty looks, pinned me down on the floor sextus his foot on my neck.

Translation a harsh tutor—and this is what he's taught me: to keep to tarts and live off the rails. He declares that, thanks to Cynthia, he is driven to hate propertius girls. This is pathology, not passion. Warden propertius J.

McCulloch tries free verse. What justification is there for the renderings under propertius That they are complete? They are complete misrepresentations. The University sexfus California Press, which translstion year gave us a nonpareil, needed Virgil, should hang its head in shame.

For the Latin they print at the back sextus the book is more than half a century oldnot as they erroneously state. Propertius is the worst preserved of any major Latin poet, but his text has been considerably clarified in the 20th century. Housman even prepared a fresh edition with commentary, yet somehow convinced his translation executors to destory it!
