Willis Barnstone


Ancient Greek Lyrics collects Willis Barnstone's based translations of Greek lyric poetry―including the main whole Sappho in English, newly translated. This quantity encompasses a consultant sampling of all of the major poets, from Archilochos, within the seventh century BCE, via Pindar and the opposite nice singers of the classical age, right down to the Hellenistic, Roman, and Byzantine sessions. William E. McCulloh's advent illuminates the kinds and improvement of the Greek lyric whereas Barnstone presents a quick biographical and literary cartoon for every poet and provides a considerable advent to Sappho―revised for this edition―complete with notes and resources. A word list and up-to-date bibliography are included.
