EDWARD CAPPS (1866–1950)

From Homer To Theocritus: A Manual Of Greek Literature (1901)

📖 No Ancient Greek Terminology included. All literary fragments offered in English translation.

ℹ️ "This volume aims to present a concise but complete survey of the Greek literature of the classical period, extended so as to include the two branches of poetry, the New Comedy and the Idyll, which were brought to perfection after the overthrow of Greek liberty by Alexander. I have tried, so far as space would permit, to place in their proper setting each branch of literature and each author, keeping constantly in mind the course of development of the literature as a whole. Selections from representative English translations are quoted in connection with the principal authors, more extensively for the poets than for the writers of prose. It is hoped that this feature of the book will be found acceptable, both to the general reader who has not the time, even if he has the training and equipment, for comprehensive readings in the Greek texts, and to the average student whose attainments in Greek are not sufficiently extensive to furnish an adequate background for the most profitable study of the ordinary manuals." (Preface)

ℹ️ ""From Homer to Theocritus" is a manual of Greek literature during the classic period, which began with epic poetry in general, and specifically with Homer's great epic, and extended through the course of dramatic literature to the modern tendencies beginning in the fourth century. Professor Capps gives a brief critical study to each period and each author, and illustrates with sufficient selections from standard English translations. It is a most excellent book to go to to study the course of Greek literature through its glorious classic period. The book is made with a true scholar's taste and judgment, and is very resourceful. It is illustrated with valuable plates." (Journal Of Education, 29/05/1902)
