Little Poems from the Greek

Excerpt from Little Poems From the Greek The following translations are but a selection from a large number, mostly made during the war as a relief from more pressing occupations and anxieties. The handy little volume containing the Greek text of Mr Mackail's Select Epigrams from the Greek Anthology was at that time my constant companion; and a large proportion of the work of love was done in the "daily bread" trains which conveyed me between my country home and my office in the City. After the war, when I had completed versions of Mr Mackail's five hundred epigrams, there appeared in the Loeb Library the late Mr Paton's monumental edition of the entire Anthology, with notes and a prose translation, and this started me afresh. But the additions hence made are not many in proportion; Mr Mackail's selection is so admirably done as to leave but few gleanings of equal value to those he has chosen. This will be apparent from the Notes, where, while giving the giving the original sources in all cases, I have added also a reference, where possible, to Mr Mackail's volume. To his notes I must refer those who desire to learn something more about textual and critical questions; with these I have not troubled myself, generally following Mackail without further question.
