    Greek lyric poetry is brain-breakingly hard to read. The difference dialects, the lacunae, the grammatical contortions necessary to make the words fit the meter, the vast variety of meters. . . it was all too much for me, particularly since I was only auditing the class, because I could never make it on Wednesdays, because I had another class. It also doesn't help that I am naturally lazy. So if this kind of stuff floats your boat, go ahead and pat yourself on the back for being a better person Greek lyric poetry is brain-breakingly hard to read.

This stuff either builds character, or proves you don't have any. ;)

    This volume is immensely useful; first of all, the short reference sections on dialects and authorial quirks are convenient. Second of all, Sappho and Archilochus. Sappho and Archilochus are a luxury everyone should indulge in.
