Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Albius Tibullus (/tɪˈbʌləs/; c. 55 BC –... More > 19 BC) was a Latin poet and writer of elegies. Little is known about his life.

His status was probably that of a Roman knight (so the Life affirms); and he had inherited a considerable estate. But, like Virgil, Horace and Propertius, he seems to have lost most of it in 41 BC amongst the confiscations of Mark Antony and Octavian.Tibullus's chief friend and patron was Marcus Valerius Messalla Corvinus, himself an orator and poet as well as a statesman and a commander.
