Sappho's Lyre is a mixture of diligent study and poetic artistry. The translations are in line with the newest discoveries of papyri (including "new" Archilochos and Stesichoros) and the most recent versions and scholarship. The advent and notes supply ancient and literary contexts that make this historic poetry extra obtainable to fashionable readers.
Although this e-book is essentially aimed toward the reader who doesn't be aware of Greek, it might be a most suitable complement to a Greek language path. it's going to even have large charm for readers of' old literature, women's experiences, mythology, and enthusiasts of poetry.
