Latin poem, translated by Martina Dal Zotto (pr ag)

Translating my love poem in Latin was difficult, my latin versions are far away. A Latin poem in the language of our history. A pretty poetry to declaim under the windows of your beloved. Latin remains official language in the Vatican. The Roman conquests were so important that Latin has diffuse over a vast territory and its influence remained immense. Many Romance languages ​​come from this italic language. Its alphabet is also the one used by the most languages ​​in the world, and in the 7th century BC it consists of 23 letters (i and u vowels are not distinguished from i and u consonants). The first Latin writers are polygraphists and, unlike Greece, several literary genres appear simultaneously in Rome. Livius Andronicus, Naevius and Ennius find in the Italian traditions the inspiration of their epics. Plautus and Terence write their comedies. Prose appears later than poetry, and it is Cato the Elder who first, in a still clumsy language, composes many historical, oratory, and technical works in prose. The Latin poets of the first century find in the Alexandrian literature a taste for the minor genres, the refinement of expression and sentiment, That highlights Catullus poetry. In the 1st century the influence of the declamation schools is crucial in the poems. The poetry very fashionable in worldly circles, is confined to circumstance works such as those of Calpurnius Siculus and Stace.
