    schema:description "Most substantial is the collection of elegaic verses to which Theognis' name is attached. Drinking and merry-making are frequent themes in these poems; there are also more reflective and philosophic pieces and love poems. Together they offer an interesting picture of an aristocratic man's views about life, friendship, fate, and daily concerns. Also notable in this volume is the marital verse of the Spartan Tyrtaeus and the poetry of Solon, Athens' famous lawmaker. Douglas E. Gerber is Fox Professor of Classics, University of Western Ontario. -- JACKET."@en ;
