  The Greek Poets: Homer to the Present edited by Peter Constantine, Rachel Hadas, Edmund Keeley & Karen Van Dyck This is an innovative and sumptuous anthology. The Greek Anthology is an unusual text with roots in an anthology of epigrams first compiled by Meleager of Gadara in the 1st century BCE and supplemented over the centuries by various editors/compilers until it contained over 4, poems of various length and type including epitaphs and prayers.(*) The poems date between the 7th century BCE.

The Greek Anthology ("Gathering of Flowers") is the name given to a collection of about short Greek poems (called epigrams but usually not epigrammatic) by about composers. To the collection (called "Stephanus," wreath or garland) made and contributed to by Meleager of Gadara (1st century BCE) was added another by Philippus of Thessalonica (late 1st century CE), a third by Diogenianus. With this anthology, Barbara Hughes Fowler presents the most comprehensive selection of Greek poetry of the seventh and sixth centuries B.C. ever published in English. Fowler's brilliant translations provide access to six Homeric Hymns, eight selections from Bakchylides, twelve odes of Pindar, selections from the iambicists and elegists, virtually all of Archilochos and of the surviving.
