    schema:description ""The witty and self-assertive poetry of Christopher of Mytilene and John Mauropous provides unique snapshots of eleventh-century Constantinople at the height of its splendor and elegance. Their collections, aptly called 'various verses, ' greatly range in length and style--including epigrams, polemics, encomia, and more--and their poems were written for a broad range of social occasions such as court ceremonies, horse races, contests between schools, and funerals. Some were inscribed on icons and buildings. Their poems honored patrons and friends, debunked rivals, or offered satirical portraits of moral types in contemporary society. In some remarkable introspective poems, Mauropous carefully shaped a narrative of his life and career, while Christopher's body of work is peppered with riddles and jocular wordplay. This volume is the first English translation of these Byzantine Greek collections. It is a natural choice to place Christopher of Mytilene and John Mauropous together in one volume. Although they never explicitly refer to each other, they write about the same time period, the same places, the same persons, also largely sharing the same style, genres, and intellectual profile. Their poems display a sense of wit and a personal voice that is rarely encountered in Byzantine poetry. They bear eminent witness to the eventful times they lived in and provide a vivid image of contemporary court life and of the city of Constantinople."--"@en ;
