Alcaeus: Poems & Fragments
The complete Poems & Fragments of Alcaeus is now finally available as a paperback book and as an e-book in R J Dent’s sensitive modern English translation.
Alcaeus was a fellow countryman and contemporary of Sappho, and his beautiful and delicate poetry is often overshadowed by Sappho’s reputation. R J Dent has now translated all of Alcaeus’s Poems & Fragments from ancient Greek into lively modern English in an attempt to rescue Alcaeus’s ethereal poetry from obscurity.
There is no other published translation of Alcaeus: Poems & Fragments in existence.
