The Poems of Anyte of Tegea. The Greek text with English prose translation
The Clerk's Press
Anyte of Tegea (Ἀνύτη Τεγεᾶτις) was an Arcadian poet of the 4th century BC and described as the female Homer by Antipater of Thessalonica, a 1st century literary critic. This little book prints the original Greek text of her 25 surviving fragments, next to translations by the Imagist writer Richard Aldington. Unfortunately, it appears the majority of Anyte’s works, including the lyric and epic poems for which she was best known in antiquity, are lost.
