Collection Descriptive Notes:
Daitz reads each poem (or excerpt) twice: 1) in English translation and 2) in the ancient Greek with his own restored pronunciation. (Only the ancient Greek texts are printed in the accompanying booklet; and these were apparently borrowed from various other books.) The poets represented are: Homer, Mimnermos, Xenophanes, Arkhilokhos, Alkman, Sappho, Alkaios, Anakreon, Simonides, Pindar, Aiskhylos, Sophokles, Euripides and Aristophanes.
Collection Technical Notes:
