Delightful Classic

by Robert O on Feb 3, 2011

This is an excellent introduction to the popular Latin literature of the Middle Ages, written by a scholar who loved her subject. For those of us whose Latin falls far below her standard of excellence, her translations on opposite pages are much needed help and a delight in themselves.


What can one say?

This is the standard book in the field, the one others wish they were. It's a marvelous compilation.


Beautiful Translations

by RAGS on Feb 21, 2008

First published in 1929 in England and still considered the best book in the field. Latin text with facing English translations. A very personal selection of short latin poems from the end of the Roman Empire to the high Middle Ages. The translations are works of art by themsleves; not literal but beautifully capturing the sense and feeling of the originals. And the extensive biographical notes at the back of the text are even better than the translations. Poetery at its best!
