Read full description of the books:



This lovely book pairs selections of translated Greek and Roman verse from Homer, Sappho, Virgil, Horace, and Ovid, among others, with fine examples of paintings, sculpture, vases, and decorative objects. The excerpts, which cover the period from the eighth century B.C. to the early Middle Ages, were chosen from famous works, such as Homer's Iliad as well as less well-known pieces, such as the writings of the Greek poet Ibycus. This book demonstrates that the human preoccupation with love in all its forms has inspired writers for millennia: from the expression of enduring faithfulness and familial affection in Homer's description of Hector and Andromache to the passionate intensity portrayed by the later Greek lyric poets and the light-hearted depiction of love as a lost little boy by the anonymous authors of the Inacreontea. The book includes a brief introduction to Greek and Roman views on love and marriage, a short biographical note on each of the major poets, and a glossary of mythical and geographical names.
