L.C. Smithers (au); Richard Burton (au). The statues of Priapus, the ancient Roman god of fertility, were adorned not only with a huge phallus, but also short & jocose Latin epigrams. For centuries these bawdy verses, attributed to some of the most classical Roman poets such as Martial, Petronius, Catullus, Ovid, Tibullus & Cinna, lay untranslated. This book reprints the prose & verse translations of those masters of classic erotica, Leonard Smithers & Sir Richard Burton. The ripe Roman sense of humor that they reveal show that mankindís taste for the ribald has remained unchanged over the centuries. A volume in the Wordsworth Classic Erotica series.
