The Roman Poetry Collection contains a wealth of history, culture, and lore presented with a vitality and descriptiveness only the freedom of poetry could create. The collection includes Epigrams by Martial, the creator of the poetic form of epigrams, who uses hundreds of brief, witty poems to give us snapshots of Roman life not found in history books. The collection also includes mimes written to playfully mock society, epic poems of famous tales like Jason and the golden fleece, heart-wrenching love poems written by people whose lives embody their writing, poems about the Roman spectacles, and many more forms, authors, and topics for you to examine Roman culture—including poems by Emperor Hadrian. With over 20 known poets and numerous poems whose authors remain unknown, the Roman Poetry Collection provides an authentic look into a flourishing Roman culture through one of the most beautiful languages ever written.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each text is included in its original Latin, with an English translation for easy side-by-side comparison. Logos’ language tools help you go deeper into the Latin text and explore the poets’ elegant language. Use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult Latin words and find every appearance of the same word in your library. Students of ancient history, culture, literature, and Latin will enjoy these works and appreciate their significance.
