Iacobus Merrill (natus James Ingram Merrill Novi Eboraci, 3 Martii 1926; Tucsoniae Arizonae, 6 Februarii 1995) fuit poeta Americanus cuius praemia comprehendunt Praemium Pulitzeranum poesis (1977) pro Divine Comedies (1976). Eius poemata in duo distincta operum corpora digeri possunt: in formalistica et bene polita eius cursus primi poesi lyrica, atque in epica communicationis occultae cum spiritibus angelisque narratione, nomine The Changing Light at Sandover inscripta (in tribus voluminibus ab 1976 ad 1980 editis), quae eius cursum vitae posteriorem dominabatur. Plurimum eius operum editorum erant poemata, sed commentarios, opera fictionis, ludos scripsit.

Exemplum: poema "The Black Swan"[recensere | fontem recensere]

Verba Anglica:
"The Black Swan"
Verba Latine reddita:
"Olor niger"

    Black on flat water past the jonquil lawns
        Riding, the black swan draws
    A private chaos warbling in its wake,
    Assuming, like a fourth dimension, splendor
    That calls the child with white ideas of swans
        Nearer to that green lake
    Where every paradox means wonder.

    Niger super aqua plana praeter ionquillae pratula
        Vehens, niger adumbrat olor
    Chaon privatum in tractu a tergo sui canentem,
    Apparatum, sicut mensura quarta, sibi assumens
    Qui puerum albis olorum notionibus sevocat
        Propius illum lacum viridem
    Ubi omne paradoxum stuporem significat.
