Collection of Translations Into Latin Verse: Neo-Latin Poetry
1991 0-7734-9750-1
A collection of translations and original compositions, accompanied by an introduction which explains methodology and discusses a representative sample of versions. The author's technique of verse composition constitutes a stimulating new approach to this specialized field of classical scholarship and should be of interest to all students of Neo-Latin poetry. In contrast to traditional methods, an attempt is made to reproduce the distinct flavor of particular Latin authors by various methods (such as close conformity to the model's linguistic, grammatical, metrical, stylistic and structural norms, and reminiscences in the form of words or phrases.)
