"The translations are excellent--at once literal, graceful, and idiomatic--and the poems have been selected in a way that is unparalleled in any comparable collection and is responsive to contemporary concerns."--Sheila Murnaghan, author of "Disguise and Recognition in the Odyssey" "As English poems in their own right, and as honest and sensitive transpositions of the Greek songs, these works surpass any translations of the archaic lyrists that I have seen."--John Herington, author of "Poetry into Drama"
