1 Sappho & Alcaeus; Campbell, David A. GREEK LYRIC Sappho and Alcaeus
Harvard University Press & William Heinemann 1982 0674991575 / 9780674991576 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Book has shelfwear with foxing to textblock. DJ has some foxing. ; Loeb Classical Library No. 142; Vol. 1; 1.1 x 6.38 x 4.25 Inches; 512 pages; This volume contains the poetic fragments of the two illustrious singers of early sixth-century Lesbos: Sappho, the most famous woman poet of antiquity, whose main theme was love; and Alcaeus, poet of wine, war, and politics, and composer of short hymns to the gods. Also included are the principal testimonia, the ancients' reports on the lives and work of the two poets. The five volumes in the Loeb Classical Library edition of Greek Lyric contain the surviving fragments of solo and choral song. This poetry was not preserved in medieval manuscripts, and few complete poems remain. Later writers quoted from the poets, but only so much as suited their needs; these quotations are supplemented by papyrus texts found in Egypt, most of them badly damaged. The high quality of what remains makes us realise the enormity of our loss. Volume I presents Sappho and Alcaeus.
