    An essential collection of the surviving work of three Greek lyric poets The translations are simple and direct with brackets and notes denoting missing text Davenport does not embellish the surviving fragments or even worse try to guess or “reconstruct” what may have been written in the damaged sections of the manuscripts The result especially for the fragments from Archilochus is an almost otherworldly feel Sometimes we are forced to use our imaginations to fill in missing text; at other times we can only marvel at the stark beauty and modernist looking juxtaposition of the remaining few words of text Complete single lines of verse remain in a few instances leading one to wonder if these were preserved as uotations taken from later manuscripts The mystery is part of the allure and I found some of the smaller fragments enjoyable to read that the longer complete poems

    A beautiful collection of poetry maybe so for it being in ruins Like most people I imagine I respond most strongly probably to Sappho but all three are good and wonderful at times Reading this felt like a weird superimposition of current time with a few years ago reading Willard and His Bowling Trophies unless it's a different Brautigan book I'm thinking of where the man reads the Greek fragments to his wife

    sappho is wonderful Not all his transaltions are success but the ones that are have no price Also he is translating fragments and does not often add what is lost so honest to the point of letting us know what is lost and aching for what is not there
