Book Description University of California Press, 1984. Soft cover. Condition: Very Good. WHY BUY from book dealers who won't take the time to accurately describe the book you're considering purchasing? THIS is a very good condition soft cover. As such, the spine is straight, binding tight, corners firm, and is internally clean and NOT marked. 176 pages. From the back cover: "This is a translation of the surviving fragments of three poets of the seventh and sixth centuries B.C. in Greece: the soldier-poet Archilochus, whose work became the archetype of the satirist of the Classical world; Sappho, whose love songs shaped the erotic sensibilities of the West; and the Spartan Alkman, whose religious hymns and epigrams reflect the archaic Greek mind in all its splendor. These lyrics exist in fragments only (like the sculpture and architecture of the period) and have to be accepted as broken evidence of a world all but lost to historical scrutiny. The fragments are derived from quotations in grammarians, from pottery shards, from vellum and papyrus pages unearthed at Alexandria, and in some instances from scrap paper used for mummy wrappings. This edition includes a recently deciphered long lyric of Archilochus and two newly deciphered fragments of Sappho. All the decipherable fragments of Archilochus and Sappho are translated, and all the reasonable coherent fragments of Alkman. This is probably the only complete translation of Archilochus. No other translation of Sappho attempts all her fragments. To our knowledge, there are no other translations into English of the Alkman hymns." SHIPS FROM Eugene, Oregon, USA. INTERNATIONAL orders may require additional postage at prevailing rates. Location: case. Seller Inventory # ABE-13097943888
