The fifth century Greek lyric poet Bacchylides was the nephew of Simonides of Ceos and the rival of Pindar. He was included by later Greeks in the canonical list of nine lyric poets, due to his ‘elegance’ and ‘polished’ style. The most notable features of his poetry are clarity in expression and simplicity of thought, making his verses an ideal introduction to the study of Greek lyric poetry. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Greek texts. This eBook presents Bacchylides’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
