This book presents English versions of Latin and Greek poems by Lucretius, Sulpicia, Ovid, Horace, Vergil and Sappho. The pieces of this collection move generally backward through time, from levitas... More > and Romanticism steadily into deeper gravitas and Classicism. Roman and Greek poets frequently expressed the idea of the brevity of life and the logic of enjoying it while it could be enjoyed.
