Translated by A. M. Juster and Introduction and Notes by Robert Maltby

Oxford World's Classics

  • Tibullus is one of the three great Roman elegists, alongside Ovid and Propertius. His poems addressed to Delia, Nemesis, and the boy Marathus are here given in a faithful and stylish new translation.
  • Includes the facing Latin text.
  • The Introduction considers Tibullus' poems in the context of classical elegy and in particular the elegies of his contemporaries Ovid and Propertius, the three addressees of the poems, and the influence of his patron Messalla in the reign of Augustus.
  • Comprehensive notes explain topical, literary, and mythological allusions and identify major themes.
