About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1900, this volume gathers together a collection of modern Greek songs designed for both classical scholars and lovers of folklore in general. It is consummately edited and contains a wide variety of works divided according to genre; each poem is introduced within the main body of the text and additional critical analysis is given in a large notes section at the end. The poems are presented in a parallel text format and non-interpretive translations provide the reader with as literal a version of the original as possible. This is a fascinating collection that is particularly notable for being made up of poems which were previously unpublished in Western Europe.
