The most passionate, individual, and controversial of the Latin love elegists, Propertius in Book 3 covers a broad range of subject matter and a vast geographical reach. After books focused on his mistress Cynthia, he maintains his elegiac role but expands his range to provide a lover's commentary on life, discussing luxury, nudity, art, the empire, and the dangers of travel for profit and war. This detailed commentary uses the text recently published in the Oxford Classical Texts series, and sets out to build on the richness of the material in the book by providing clear introductions to the genres the poems explore - the Greek elegy of Callimachus, epic, tragedy, hymn and epigram - and to topics such as patronage, philosophy, and the images of love as slavery and as warfare.Features* Presents the most up-to-date and readable text, that of S. J. Heyworth's OCT edition* Includes extensive introduction with glossary of literary terms and five maps of the geography of Book 3* Full notes, offering generous help on linguistic details and literary background, will engage students and help them cope with the difficulties of the text* Generous citation of Greek and Latin, all translated, makes a broad range of parallels readily available
