Propertius is a poet of the Augustan period, a successor of the great Hellenistic elegiac poets Callimachus and Philitas, and a precursor of Ovid. His account of his fictionalized affair with his beloved alter ego Cynthia is the purest expression of the spirit of love elegy, setting them as a pair against war, epic and (apparently) Augustus himself. The treatment of their love is tender and at times delightfully macabre, in pursuing their love beyond the grave. This is a text read by virtually all students of Classical Latin, and it is now available in a radical new edition, more readable and based on the latest research into the manuscript tradition. This is fully explained in the English preface, which also contains important comments on the way texts are edited and read. Some significant emendations discovered in the papers of A. E. Housman are published here for the first time.

Review:

In his monumental commentary, which throughout denotes expertise and professional dedication, H. analyses poems, elegies, lines, words, and punctuation with the skill of a scholar consistent in his own ideas and ruthless with the scalpel of reason and common sense... My fullest recognition and admiration therefore for this Herculean task (Antonio Rami, Bryn Mawr Classical Review)

H.'s text presents immense scope for discussion (David Butterfield)
