Puerilities: Erotic Epigrams of The Greek Anthology

Synopsis

"Daryl Hine's translations from "The Greek Anthology" are the liveliest, frequently loveliest, and certainly the most libidinous versions of these celebrated texts that I've ever seen. I know from years of teaching that American students, even of the Classics, are quite vague about what The Greek Anthology was really like--particularly the salacious aspect of those poems. Hine alone gives a fair (or is that foul) sample."--Richard Howard, Columbia University
