Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sherod Santos's new translation of classical poems answers Rosetti's mandate that "the only true motive for putting poetry into a fresh language must be to endow a fresh nation...with one more possession of beauty." Arranged into four periods--Classical, Hellenic, Roman, and Early Byzantine-- features works by such ancient masters as Xenophanes, Callimachus, Sappho, and Simonides. For the general reader as well as for poets and lovers of poetry, the translations celebrate the marvelous slips and illuminating reconfigurations that occur when a poet in the present communes with poets in the past.

Synopsis:

Winner of the Umhoefer Prize: "A magnificent achievement, better, more animated, buoyant, and richly articulated than any other version I know."--Anthony Hecht

About the Author

Sherod Santos is the author of five volumes of poetry, including The Pilot Star Elegies, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. He lives in Columbia, Missouri.
