Book Overview

Ancient Greek Lyrics collects Willis Barnstone's elegant translations of Greek lyric poetry--including the most complete Sappho in English, newly translated. This volume includes a representative sampling of all the significant poets, from Archilochos, in the 7th century BCE, through Pindar and the other great singers of the classical age, down to the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine periods. William E. McCulloh's introduction illuminates the forms and development of the Greek lyric while Barnstone provides a brief biographical and literary sketch for each poet and adds a substantial introduction to Sappho--revised for this edition--complete with notes and sources. A glossary and updated bibliography are included.
