By Martin L. West

*From Preface


In Iambi et E legt Graeci (Oxford, 1971-2) i've got amassed the is still of pre-Alexandrian elegy and iambus. the current experiences are a derivative of the version and meant to be learn along side it. to a point they're an apologia for it, in that they serve to provide an explanation for the various offerings I made, in recognize of inclusion or exclusion of fabric, association, and textual questions. to some degree they require an apologia themselves. They flagrantly lack homogeneity and formal cohesion: the cohesion is within the box of analysis. i'd maybe have written a extra encyclopaedic e-book or statement on those poets, which might were larger proportioned and extra commonly bought, merely I had now not the tummy for it. All i wished used to be to post what I needed to say that used to be new. i'll have performed so in a sequence of articles; yet along with including to congestion in periodicals, that might absolutely were much less handy in case you have an interest in those issues. i'm wakeful, specially considering the fact that analyzing the proofs, that i've got occasionally said my perspectives in a slightly compressed and elliptical manner. i will merely desire that this has now not ended in actual obscurity. The reader who unearths it attempting could locate it a convenience to mirror how a lot he or his library may need needed to pay for the booklet if I had written extra spaciously. i'd were extra ashamed of the other fault. i have to thank the publishers and their editors for accepting the paintings for this sequence, and for the care they've got taken over its production.
