The translations are based upon original Ionic Greek texts but are expressed in contemporary Canadian English. Sappho wrote famously of lesbian love and has been often imitated. Anacreon is less well known and this collection will introduce lovers of poetry and of life to his much underestimated works. Together they form a marvellous complement to each other and sing relevantly to us across the centuries. John Edwards has previously translated into verse the Roman author Apicius, and the complete Latin satires of Juvenal, Persius, and Horace. He teaches classical philosophy and Tudor history at Vancouver Island University
