Originally published in 1937, this book presents a selection of some of the most captivating Greek poetry from antiquity and illumines new nuances of meaning through the author's largely exclusive translations. Ranging between the dates 650 BC and AD 920, the book contains a myriad of poems all concerned with the subjects of love and beauty. There is broad range of authorship contained, encompassing the acclaimed Plato to anonymous and complete poems included as well as intelligible and intriguing fragments. Edmonds also provides a comprehensive introduction to the poems, in which he outlines their origin and ideology. This book is a must read for literature scholars and will be of considerable interest to scholars in cognate fields such as classics, philosophy and literary translation. A later publication Some Greek Poems of Love and Wine in 1939 accompanies this book.
