The author examines the lost and found voices in the Propertian elegy 3.6. Among the elements of narrative that influenced the poem are speech from more than one point of view and perception/experience that may not be filtered through the figure of the Ego. The interest of the poet in maintaining the power of the story-world is said to be evident in poem 3.6. She explains the role of the dual nature of voice, namely, social and abstract, in Propertian elegy.
