Reader's note

This endearing purple Penguin will make a fine addition to any home collection! This truly brilliant title, is a modernisation of classic Latin poetry. This not only makes it easier to read, it also adds a new dimension to the text at present. The following section is taken from 'The dispossessed' - Tityrus, while you lie there at ease under the awning of a spreading beech and practise country songs on a light shepherd's pipe, I have to bid good-bye to the home fields and the ploughland that I love. Exile for me, Titryrus - and you lie sprawling in the shade, teaching the woods to chop back the charms of Amaryllis - vivid imagery that brings to mind the myths and legends of days gone past.
