    Classics Ancient [return to TOP]

  • Virgil, Eclogue 1 (O):  Text and literal translation.  REVISED 12 November 2009.

  • Virgil, Eclogue 4 (O):  Text, literal translation, and explanatory notes.   REVISED 12 November 2009.

  • Virgil, Eclogue 5 (O):  Text, literal translation, and select bibliography.   REVISED 12 November 2009.

  • Catullus, Libelli I-III (O):  Most critical editions of Catullus do not divide his poems into three books.  This reflects the terrible tradition of the manuscript transmission for Catullus.  Scholarly investigation has formulated the very likely hypothesis that in antiquity Catullus' poems circulated in three separate papyrus rolls.  Such was most likely the author's original intention, and such is our intention to preserve his.  This original presentation of Catullus includes the Latin text with a facing English translation.

  • W. W. Ewbank,  The Poems of Cicero (S ):  Originally published in 1933.  This e-text is compiled from hi-res scans.  Bookmarks have been inserted to faciliate reading.

    Classics Modern [return to TOP]

  • Thomas Macaulay, Lays of Ancient Rome (O Z):  Just because it's no longer in vogue as a part of the traditional secondary and collegiate curriculum doesn't mean that you have (or want) to ignore it.  Pay attention to the poetry, not the prose.  Many of the views that Macaulay espouses have been exploded, demolished, or otherwise debunked.  Requires Adobe Acrobat 5 or higher.  <-COUGH->Some sites actually charge for an e-text of this document.  I wonder if they included the Greek text of the original?<-/COUGH->

    Studies From My Desk (O) [return to TOP]

  • Roman Generals and Spanish Peoples:  This paper is simply a brief overview of three Latin inscriptions, all from the Republican era:  (1)  CIL 1.614, CIL 2.5041, ILS 15, ILLRP 2: 514; (2)  CIL 1.709, CIL 6.37045, ILS 8888; ILLRP 2: 515, Criniti 1970: 16-26; (3)  AE 1983,0602 = 1984, 0586.  The Roman “generals” involved are: Lucius Aemilius Paulus, Gnaeus Pompeius Strabo, and Gaius Valerius Flaccus.  The Latin text of each inscription has been translated, and “plates” are provided for the first two inscriptions.
