Prudentius' Hymns for Hours and Seasons

Full Product Description

Combing faithfulness to the Latin with sensitivity to the Prudentius' literary qualities, Nicholas Richardson delivers an accurate but also creative verse translation of the major work of one of the most important Latin poets of late antiquity. Prudentius' Cathemerinon provides readers with a wealth of material contextualizing the life and output of Prudentius, including manuscript and editorial details, discussion of the metrics and Latinity, and a sense of how the individual hymns of the Cathemerinon might be. Richardson's up-to-date and fresh translation of Prudentius' Cathemerinon allows readers who are unfamiliar with Latin to understand and interpret the poem as well as offering readers of Latin a near line by line translation. Coupled to the introductory material, ancillary information provided by maps, an index of editorial changes and notes provide students and scholars alike with a comprehensive volume on one of the key works of later lain poetry.
