The Poems Book Detail/ Review :

Of all the great classical love poets, Propertius, alive around 50-10 BCE, is surely one of those with most immediate appeal for readers today. His helpless infatuation for the sinister figure of his mistress Cynthia forms the main subject of his poetry and is analyzed with a tormented but witty grandeur in all its changing moods, from ecstasy to suicidal despair.
