TRANSLATIONS OF CLASSICAL AUTHORS

.

Every student of English poetry should have access to the chief Greek and Latin classics. As few can nowadays be expected to read the original texts, a brief list of cheap translations of the authors who have had the greatest influence upon English literature may be useful :

Iliad, translated by Pope (Astor ed., 50 cents); tr. Lang, Leaf, and Myers (prose), 80 cents.

Odyssey, tr. Palmer, 75 cents; tr. Butcher and Lang (prose), 80 cents.

Æschylus (Everyman's Library, 35 cents),
Sophocles (Everyman's Library, 35 cents).

Euripides (2 vols., Everyman's Library, 35 cents each).

Plato, Five Dialogues on Poetic Inspiration (Everyman's Library, 35 cents).

Theocritus, Bion, and Moschus, tr. Lang (prose), 80 cents.

Vergil, tr. Conington (Astor ed. 50 cents); tr. Lonsdale and Lee (prose), $1.25.

Horace (Everyman's Library, 35 cents).

Ovid, the only accessible translation at present is that in Bohn's Library 3 vols., $1.50 each (of which Vol. II is the most valuable); but Mr. Dent promises that a translation will soon be included in Everyman's Library.

Editions of all the classical texts with translations are planned for the Loeb Classical Library (the Macmillan Company); many of them have already been published.
