Biblo & Tannen Publishers, 1990 - 362 strán (strany)
This fascinating book traces the development of Roman poetry from the origin of Latin literature to the fall of the Roman Republic. It also looks at the general character of Roman poetry, as well as examining the work of specific poets. William Young Sellar is the author of Roman Poets of the Augustan Age. From 1853-1859 he was an assistant professor at the University of St. Andrew, and from 1859-1863 was Greek Professor at that university. In 1863, to the great regret of St. Andrews, Mr. Sellar went to Edinburgh to fill the Chair of Latin.
