help to choose text for my diplom work

Postby xoffox » Sat Mar 15, 2008 9:20 pm

avete, :)
For my diplom work i have to choose latin text or a peace of text, wich can be written no latter than 3-4 A.C. The auctor can be everybody, and the theme of his scripture can be everything,it doesn`t matter prose or poem, but it has to be at about 25-30 pages. I have to translate his text in my language . I`m interested in theme like - love or smth. connected with the Venus or her feasts. But I have the condition that text I will choose not to be translatted in my language before me. So the most imporant auctors have yet translated - for exemple I know that the poems of Catulus and the Ovidius "Ars amatoria" are translated. So I ask everybody who knows texts aliked these or similar to write me the auctor`s name and the title of the text. I will be very grateful to you, I hope that you understend my idia for that witch can be interesting for me. If somebody has other advice to me can write to me too.
Thank you :wink:

There is actually plenty of untranslated medieval work, but in that time frame? I don't know, I think it depends on how much Bulgarian has translated itself.

I can not help. I hope others can, though. :)

Good luck!

Avete,
Thank you,Mugle M and vir literarum for help, but
Unfortunately the text " Cupid & Psyhe " is translated, I searched for another text.... and found " Remedy for love" but it is also translated :( So I will reseearch again, I wanted to know if there are latin text which describe the roman rites and religion also not latter than 3 A.C. I found these site http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/ and had looked almost every text there. I hope that in these site are not collected all latin texts to 3 A.C. So please if somebody knows other net adress with more latin texts to write it to me.

I think that the main page of The Latin Library lists only the "feature authors". This is their complete listing:
