Scholar's name to ffep (Emmet Robbins). Very light bumping to bottom corners. DJ spine is a little sunned. DJ has edgewear with light chipping and a few small tears. ; This superb and fascinating book insists upon trying to place the poetry of Sappho, Alcaeus, Pindar, Archilochus, and others within its social and ritual contexts: oral performance, patron/poet relationship, and religious or communal function. Considering the evidence, such efforts must at times rely upon inspiration, but the close textual readings of individual poems, judicious use of anthropological method, and inclusion of many of the recently discovered fragments creates a vivid picture. ; 0.97 x 8.94 x 6.08 Inches; 408 pages
