Alcaeus: Poems & Fragments

Graphic - Alcaeus: Poems & Fragments – translated by R J Dent (ISBN 978-1-906451-53-0)Translated by R J Dent

Alcaeus was a fellow countryman and contemporary of Sappho, and his beautiful and delicate poetry is often overshadowed by Sappho’s reputation. R J Dent has now translated all of Alcaeus’s Poems & Fragments from ancient Greek into lively modern English in an attempt to rescue Alcaeus’s ethereal poetry from obscurity.

There is no other published translation of Alcaeus: Poems & Fragments in existence.

R J Dent’s sensitive modern English translation of the complete Poems & Fragments of Alcaeus is now available in paperback and e-book formats from Circaidy Gregory Press at:
