In this anthology of Greek verse, poets from Homer and Sappho to Sophocles and Euripides provide a glimpse of the lost world of Ancient Greece. The original Greek verse is accompanied by the translations of celebrated writers such as Alexander Pope, W.B. Yeats and Oscar Wilde. Evocative frescoes and vase paintings from sites closely linked with Greek myth and history illustrate each page. Brief biographical information about each of the Greek poets, as well as a note on the art, complete the book.
