More Description

"Professor Lattimore, holding closely to the original metres, has produced renderings of great power and beauty. His feeling for the telling noun and verb, the simple yet poignant epithet, and the dramatic turn of syntax is marked. He has completely freed the poems from sentimentality, and the thrilling ancient names--Anacreon, Alcaeus, Simonides, Sappho--acquire fresh brilliance and vitality under his hand."--Louise Bogan, "The New Yorker"
"The significant quality of Mr. Lattimore's versions is that they are pure. The lenses he provides are as clear as our language is capable of making them."--Moses Hadas, "N.Y. Herald Tribune"
