The present volume provides a comprehensive guide to one of the most difficult authors of classical antiquity. All the major aspects of Propertius' work, its themes, the poetical technique, its sources and models, as well as the history of Propertian scholarship and the vexed problems of textual criticism, are dealt with in contributions by Joan Booth, James Butrica, Francis Cairns, Elaine Fantham, Paolo Fedeli, Adrian Hollis, Peter Knox, Robert Maltby, Tobias Reinhardt and Richard Tarrant; due space is also given to the reception of the author from antiquity and the renaissance (Simona Gavinelli) up to the modern age (Bernhard Zimmermann). At the centre stands an interpretation of the four transmitted books by Gesine Manuwaldt, Hans-Peter Syndikus, John Kevin Newman and Hans-Christian Gnther.Contents1 The history of propertian scholarship 2 The transmission of the text of propertius 3 Propertian textual criticism and editing 4 Propertius and the origins of Latin love-elegy 5 Propertius and Hellenistic poetry 6 Propertius and the neoterics 7 Major themes and motifs in propertius' love poetry 8 The image of woman in propertius' poetry 9 Propertius and rhetoric 10 The first book 11 The second book12 The third book: defining a poetic self 13 The fourth book14 The reception of propertius in late antiquity and neolatin and renaissance literature 15 The reception of propertius in the modern age: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Romische Elegien and Ezra Pound's Homage to Sextus Propertius
