Poetry by individual poets
Of all the great classical love poets, Propertius is surely one of those with most immediate appeal for the twentieth-century reader. His poetry centres on a helpless infatuation for the sinister figure of his mistress, Cynthia, and it is analysed with a tormented but witty grandeur in all its changing moods - from ecstasy to suicidal despair.

Reviews for The Poems

Sensual, bitchy, soppy, satirical, this great sequence of love-hate poems lives again in Lee's vivid versions. Not just a scintillating survey of erotic agony and ecstacy, but a witty glimpse of the smart set in Rome. * New Statesman & Society *
