Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198721153, Paperback)

This book analyzes the features unique to Roman poetry composed in the period 240-8 B.C., demonstrating how these features are to be recognized and used as the basis for interpreting individual poems. Williams's particular emphasis is on the relation between poetic tradition (largely derived from Greek literature) and Roman originality. Long out-of-print, this volume includes a new postscript and updated bibliography.
