Additional Information

Successfully integrating elegance and a close fidelity to the Greek, these new translations aim to provide Greekless students with as close a sense as possible of how the Greeks themselves thought and wrote about the world. Miller's skillful introduction places the works in historical context and briefly describes the different metrical forms represented in the selections. Headnotes to each section highlight the background of the poet whose works follows. Complete with a glossary of names and a select bibliography.

This review relates to the volume -Greek Lyric: An
Anthology in Translation-, Translated with an Introduction
and Notes by Andrew M. Miller, ISBN: 0872202917, Hackett
Publishing Company,
1996. 258 pp.)
Though many of these lyrics and fragments have been
published in other editions, by other translators --
and each has its glories -- this edition is very well
formatted, pleasing, and very accessible to the eye and
mind. Each poet is preceded by a short piece of
background, then the poems are numbered, spaced, and
listed (with interspersed, but unobtrusive notes in
the text).
The scope and purpose of the volume is stated by
Miller in his "Preface": "This anthology of translations
is drawn from the little that remains of the lyric poetry
in the Greek world during the seventh, sixth, and fifth

I wanted to read Greek lyric poetry in English as I'd heard so much about it. I didn't want to use the Loebs as the text is rendered in prose, and was almost put off altogether by the fact that what remains of the genre is so fragmentary.
However, I decided to take the plunge and purchase Andrew Miller's book based on other reviews. I am so glad I did. The poems themselves are beautiful, and the notes are EXTREMELY helpful, especially when it comes to tougher poets like Pindar.

You will not be disappointed.
This book translates these early Greek poems with helpful footnotes, a glossary of terms and explains the known background of the poets. It is a complete anthology of these lyric poets which is very enjoyable to read especially if you like Greek myth.
