Alcaeus’s Poems & Fragments has made its way across the world and onto a shelf of Greek poetry and literature in Atlantis Books. It’s almost as though Alcaeus has gone home.

    This is great! I was in Santorini in February! Atlantis Books is an amazing book shop. I wasn’t looking for a translation of Alcaeus, but I saw it amongst the Greek literature. You’ll have to go back.

    I’m going to Santotini in June. I’ll definitely visit this bookshop. It looks fantastic. Can’t promise I’ll buy Alcaeus, but you never know. I’ll certainly buy something.
