Cinna the Poet, and other Roman essays

£35.00

Product description

Very good condition. A bright and clean copy.

All twelve of the essays in this collection are concerned with the world inhabited by Cinna the Poet and his contemporaries - the politics, society and literature of late-republican Rome.
Cinna's friend Catullus - whose life and poems have been re-appraised by Dr Wiseman in his earlier book Catullan Questions - appears in several essays, as do many other contemporary poets and such members of high society as the Iunii, the Caepiones and the Metelli, many whom are revealed playing games of love and politics with the amoral panache that was characteristic of their generation.
