Of all the great classical love poets, Propertius (c. 50-10 BC) is
surely one of those with most immediate appeal for readers today.
His helpless infatuation for the sinister figure of his mistress
Cynthia forms the main subject of his poetry and is analysed with a
tormented but witty grandeur in all its changing moods, from
ecstasy to suicidal despair. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years
