Ovid: Amores Book II

Paperback / softback
Ovid's three books of personal love elegies are arguably his most attractive work. In this acclaimed edition of Amores Book II, Joan Booth offers a Latin text with parallel prose translation and on each poem, or pair of poems, a critical essay written especially for the reader with little or no Latin. For the more advanced scholars she also provides a traditional line by line commentary on the Latin text and a generously select apparatus criticus.
