This is a study of the first book of poems by the Roman poet Tibullus. By undertaking a poem-by-poem reading of Elegies Book One, the author explores the subtle, many-faceted interplay of power within the text. He brings a variety of literary and cultural theories to bear on the work and the result is a portrait of the poet and text far removed from the bland, safe and urbane Tibullus of previous criticism.
