At the request of a number of his students and associates, I have collected a few of the less technical papers of my friend and colleague KIRBY FLOWER SMITH; and now, thanks to the liberal policy of the Johns Hopkins Press, I am able to offer them to a wider circle of readers. As the two lectures on Ovid and Propertius may suggest, Professor SMITH was especially interested in the Graeco-Roman Elegy. I am sorry that I could not include here a somewhat similar study he had made of Tibullus. For this, I can only refer the reader to the introduction of his masterly edition of Tibullus (New York: American Book Co., 1913).
