Lives of the Greek Poets
Mary R Lefkowitz
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing PLC
This second edition of Lives of the Greek Poets offers a wider perspective on literary biography than the 1981 version, and aims to provide a more sympathetic portrait of the writers who tried to create biographies for the poets whose works they admired and sought to interpret for posterity. It takes advantage of recent studies in ancient reception and whenever possible describes the aims of individual biographers, and gives some indication of how biographical traditions developed over time.
