Texts, meter.
 
 
     

An "evolving digital library" of primary and secondary sources with emphasis on ancient Greece and Rome.

See the online text of Catullus (ed. Merrill), keyed into Lewis and Short's Latin Dictionary.  The Greek and Roman Materials page lists other texts, images, and resources in the collection.

 
     

An online tutorial designed "to provide a basic understanding of the most common poetic meter, the dactylic hexameter."

Students of the elegiac couplet (hexameter's daughter) will also benefit from this website, which features illustrations, audio files, and a glossary of technical terms.

   
Grammar.
 
 
     

A basic guide to the most common types of Latin subordinate clause, and how to locate and discuss them.

Written by Professor Curley for his CL 210 courses.  (44k, MS Word format).

   
Myth, culture.
 
 
     

"An online encyclopedia on mythology, folklore, and legends...from all over the world."  Concise articles, image galleries, genealogical tables, and a handy search engine.

Two sections relevant to elegy:  Greek Mythology (about deities) and Greek Heroic Legend (about heroes and heroines).

 
     

Diotima is "an interdisciplinary resource for the study of patterns of gender around the ancient Mediterranean."

See the Bibliography, which is subdivided into various topics pertinent to women's lives, and the online version of Women's Life in Greece and Rome by M. R. Lefkowitz and M. B. Fant.

   
Scholarship.
 
 
     

A database of the contents to over 185 Classics, Near Eastern, and Religion journals from 1992 to the present.

Although not the most comprehensive search engine of classical scholarship on the Web, TOCS-IN can give quick access to recent articles in the more common journals.

 
     

"The Year in Philology" -- a bibliographic journal devoted to listing every piece of scholarship on every major aspect of Classical Studies in a given year.

The online version of L'Annee currently lists all scholarship published between 1949 and 2005.

See the Semester Project Page for other research resources.
