Product description


A comprehensive collection of Greek poems written between the seventh century B.C. and the tenth century A.D.

From the Inside Flap

This is the famous collection of some 4,000 poems assembled by Byzantine scholars nearly a thousand years ago.

The poems, drawn from all over the Greek-speaking world, range from the seventh century BC through to the renaissance of Greek culture in Byzantium during the sixth century AD. This volume contains about 850 of these poems and is the largest selection ever to be published in verse translation. Arranged chronologically with a brief introduction to each poet, the poems cover every aspect of Greek life--epitaphs, satires, jokes, pastoral epigrams and poems of love and friendship. Over 40 distinguished British and American poets have contributed to the translations.
