About Latin Poetry on Oxford Scholarly Editions Online

Oxford University Press’s texts of Latin authors are going online for the first time, and our first module, Latin poetry, is now available. Discover authoritative critical editions, including the Oxford Classical Texts series, commentaries, and translations of all major works.

The digital presentation of the texts enables you to search in simple but intelligent ways; navigate straight to the line you want using familiar reference forms, such as Aeneid 2.49; read texts and translations in parallel; and look up words in the Oxford Latin Dictionary – the leading Latin dictionary, exclusive to OSEO – with our dictionary widget.

Discover OSEO for yourself with the below sample extracts.

The most famous sparrow
in literature?

'Grieve, O Venuses and Loves
And all the lovelier people there are:
My girl's sparrow is dead,
Sparrow, my girl's darling'


Celebrating the opening of
the Colosseum

'Here, where the starry colossus
sees the constellations close at
hand and a lofty framework rises
in the middle of the road'


A classic Roman love poem
by Catullus

'Give me a thousand kisses,
then a hundred,
Then another thousand,
then a second hundred'
