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.

Review:

Miller is one of the ablest experts in the language of Greek poetry, and he has a razor-sharp sense for the nuances of the wording. A lastingly important sourcebook; I strongly recommend it. --Gregory Nagy, Harvard University

. . . the translations are first-rate, better than anything comparable I know. The author is intelligent and scrupulous; he succeeds in maintaining a much higher level of accuracy and readability than any of his competitors. --Emmet Robbins, University of Toronto

Andrew Miller is one of the--if not the--leading authority on classical antiquity s most difficult lyric poet, Pindar. This book of translations and social and literary commentary proudly takes its place next to Richmond Lattimore s. There is no better introduction to the problems and accomplishments of Greek lyric poetry, and the expert will appreciate the seriousness and brilliance of insight from a Hellenist of the highest caliber. --Joseph M. Romero, Mary Washington College"
