Electronic resources for studying Roman elegy.

 Cupid and Psyche

The sheer amount of electronic media, good and bad, devoted to classical studies is nothing less than staggering.

     Here are some useful resources, all of them informative and authoritative, which will enhance your study of Roman elegy.

  Allen and Greenough's New Latin Grammar.

     "AG" is the classic resource for understanding Latin grammar.  Whatever you need to know, from declension of nouns to result clauses, you will find here.  AG is available online via the Perseus Project.

     The link above is to the table of contents — use it to access points of grammar about which you need more information.


     A series of pages (with sound files) that introduce the dactylic hexameter, which is very close to the elegiac couplet, the meter of Propertius, Tibullus, and Sulpicia.  Written by Prof. Dan Curley of Skidmore College.


Managed by Philippa Matheson of the University of Toronto, the TOCS-IN site makes available — for searching, browsing, or downloading — the tables of contents of over 150 journals of interest to classicists (1992-present).

  Short Bibliography for Latin Elegy.

     What it says.  This bibliography was compiled for a class on elegy at Rutgers, and contains many recent and older references to articles on Propertius, Tibullus, Sulpicia, and others — and additional topics.

  Arethusa 33.2.

     In Spring 2000, the journal Arethusa published a special issue on reading Roman elegy.  The entire issue is available online, with articles in either .html or .pdf formats.  If nothing else, you should mine these articles for relevant bibliography.  Several of the pieces will be assigned for article reports.


     "[A]n interdisciplinary resource for anyone interested in patterns of gender around the ancient Mediterranean," the Diotima website has several areas of interest to students of Roman elegy, including a useful bibliography and materials on Cythia, Delia, and Sulpicia.


Oxford Classical Dictionary and the
Database of Classical Bibliography


     The Oxford Classical Dictionary (OCD) is perhaps the best-known reference work on Classical Studies.  The Database of Classical Bibliography (DCB) is a CD-ROM version of L'Annee Philologique.

     Both are available over the Skidmore Network.  From "Network Neighborhood" click on \\cits6\library\cdrom\ for instructions on accessing both CD-ROMs on your local machine.
