A Garden of Greek Verse: Poems of Ancient Greece Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Odes, hymns, and lyrics from many of Greece's most noted classical poets--including Homer, Hesiod, Sappho, Sophocles, and Euripides--are beautifully illustrated here with details of ancient Greek frescoes, vase paintings, and sculptures. Over the centuries, celebrated writers such as George Chapman, Mary Barnard, John Dryden, Alexander Pope, and W. B. Yeats have been inspired to create contemporary translations of these enduring verses. In this volume are their and other modern poets' captivating translations, accompanied by the original Greek text.

This lively combination of the poetry and illustrations, along with notes on each poet and on archaeological sites such as Knossos, Akrotiri, Mycenae, Lipari, and Paestum where the Greek art objects in this book were excavated, makes this volume a perfect introduction to Greek verse.

Synopsis:

Selections of verse from many of Greece's most noted classical poets, beautifully illustrated with details of ancient Greek frescoes, vase paintings, and sculptures.
