Roman Elegies

The Roman Elegies (also known as Erotica Romana, original German: Römische Elegien) is a series of poems by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Along with the Venetian Epigrams, they were written during his Italian Journey and celebrate the sensuality and vigor of Italian and Classical culture. They contain poems on many sexual themes, and some were suppressed from publication during Goethe's lifetime due to fears of censorship.
