Love in Propertius' elegies is connected with fear (timor, metus) and anger (ira). The descriptions of these emotions allow the Roman poet to display the specific character of love, its influence on mind and behaviour. According to Propertius the expressions of fear and anger directed at a person, who wants to destroy love, testify the value of love, and an aspiration to keep it. The fears in elegies disclose love as a complicated feeling, while anger directed at the beloved person reveals the power of love passion.
