Bacchylides.; David R Slavitt
|Description:||83 p. ; 22 cm.|
|Responsibility:||translated by David R. Slavitt.|
Until a century ago, the fifth-century Greek poet was known only by 107 nonsequential lines buried as quotations in the writings of other ancient authors. With the discovery in 1896 of a papyrus containing his work, 1,382 lines were reassembled and the poems of Bacchylides finally began to take shape for the modern reader. Slavitt argues in the introduction to this collection that, although Bacchylides is often considered a "lesser Pindar," he is a poet who warrants consideration.
