This volume presents a wide range of pieces from a world-class Latinist which displays both his diverse interests as a scholar and his consistent concern with Augustan texts, their language and literary texture. The range of articles, written over more than three decades and including one previously unpublished piece, covers the same connected territory - largely Virgil, Horace, and elegy. R. O. A. M. Lyne's consistent approach of close reading means that the articles form a coherent whole, while his compelling style as an engaged literary analyst ensures that these are not dry or forbidding pieces.

MEDIA REVIEWS
...[an] impressive oeuvre...a fitting tribute to an outstanding Latinist...We are all in the debt of those students and colleagues for making this volume possible; it will be a resource for Latinists for years to come. * Denis Feeney, The Classical Review *
This volume gathers together nineteen of the most significant articles and essays by one of the most influential of modern interpreters of Augustan Latin poetry. * Philip Hardie, Times Literary Supplement *
The corpus of Lyne's work...radiates achievement. It is both his achievements and his take on poetry and life in general that, I hope, will always remain a model and stimulus for future students of ancient literature. * Bryn Mawr Reviews *
a must-buy book for any school library. Lyne writes with remarkable panache and with the rare ability to get right to the core of a work * Katharine Radice, The Journal of Classics Teaching *
