What was it like to be in love in Rome? The 22 poems of Sextus Propertius' first book of elegies (published in 28 BC) offer an answer. Definitely un-Roman in his devotion to love for his Cynthia and his art, Propertius writes with a strangely modern voice - passionate, wry, self-scrutinising, and ironic. But it is a voice that had been shaped and controlled by a literary tradition already centuries old.
