I really need English interpretations of Latin literature

I am doing a school Latin assignment that involves the translation of authors such as Livy, Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Horace and Tibullus and I hope I am posting in the correct place. The teacher actually recommends that we find others' interpretations of the set texts and use them to help ourselves. I think he said that these interpretations were called "cribs". Either way, I really need to find a website with these cribs. Does anyone know any?

Google? CLiff's Notes? May 23, 2005

A "crib" is a bilingual edition that has the text on one page and the translation on the facing page.

You could also use the Penguin Classics series (if that is not the course book), or other translations you might find that cover the texts you need. "Cliff's Notes" is a popular US study aid that might have translations of Latin classics.

Also, check online for the various sites with classics and translations. I've seen them for Saxon poetry and Beowulf, so Pliny and Catullus are probably out there. Try searching with the author's name and the word "translation".

Hi,

Perhaps this link: http://www.hup.harvard.edu/loeb/author.html will help you. I expect you should be able to find this at most university libraries.

If there is "Anglia" written next to the link or on the linked page, it's with English.
