Selections from the Greek Lyric Poets: With a Historical Introduction and Explanatory Notes (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Selections From the Greek Lyric Poets: With a Historical Introduction and Explanatory Notes

It is now twenty-six years since this little collection of Greek poems was first presented to the public as a text-book to be used in our American schools and colleges. In the revision which is now offered it is hoped that the friends whom the book has won may be pleased by its new appear ance, and that it may be better fitted to encourage interest in this form of poetry which is so closely connected with the common life of the Greek people. We have no literature which gives a more truthful picture of what the Greeks really were. If we are seeking expressions of the Greek spirit, try ing to find the sincerest utterances of Greek feeling, we can search nowhere with better results than among the fragments which are left to us of this popular poetry.
