not yet rated|write a review
Ausonius of Bordeaux, poet, professor, and statesman, whose long life almost spanned the fourth century AD, lived at a time of great cultural and political change, and was for many years, as an imperial courtier, closely involved in the administration of the Roman Empire. A prolific andoriginal writer, Ausonius covers an astonishing stylistic range in his many and varied poems, from an elaborate description of the river Moselle to after-dinner diversions, from scurrilous epigrams to the stately verses in which he proclaims his Christian beliefs or his eminence as consul. Thisrevised text of Ausonius' complete works, with over a hundred new emendations, is followed by a detailed commentary. Four introductory chapters consider the nature of Ausonius' poetry, his life and career, his influence, and the manuscripts of his works.

Editorial Reviews

`he has thoroughly weighed all his choices and decisions and produced a text which honours the author ... A new edition always provokes the question as to whether it improves on its predecessors. Having worked through the whole of the text, I dare to answer in the affirmative. This commentaryis a storehouse of learning and professional skill.'J. den Boeft, Vrije Universiteit, Mnemosyne, Vol. XLIX, Fasc.4, 1996
