Greek Poetry

M.L. West is one of the finest classicists today dealing with Greek poetry. He knows this subject better than most and you can tell with the selection of poets he chooses to elucidate. The years he covers are not the only years Greek poetry was written, but the poets are among the most famous: Sappho, Alcaeus, Archilocos (my favorite) and many more. I believe this book will give you enough overlay of Greek Lyric poetry that you wouldn't have to read another one. Perfect for the average reader, or the classicist who wishes to experiment in what they are reading.
