The passionate and dramatic elegies of Propertius gained him a reputation as one of Rome's finest love poets. Here he portrays the uneven course of his love affair with Cynthia and also tells us much about the society of his time. And in later poems he turns to the legends of ancient Rome. G. P. Goold's 1990 edition of the elegies of Propertius (revised in 1999) solves some long-standing questions of interpretation and delivers a faithful and stylish prose translation.
