A Fun Little Book

Pure Pagan: Seven Centuries of Greek Poems and Fragments
Raffel, Burton, Raffel, Burton (Translator)

A Fun Little Book

These translations are new, and most of them are originally published in the fifties so I was a little disappointed that none of them came out of recent archaelogical findings.

However they are highly enigmatic and interesting tidbits and I recommend the book even though the fragments are often quite fragmentary they do stick in the mind like little ancient post-it notes.
