Many of us are familiar with the epic stories and legends of the classical world. This anthology, the only one of its kind on audiobook, gives an insight into a more lyrical and tender aspect of Greek and Roman literature. From Homer's lofty lines on the loves of the gods to the earthier verse of Catullus to his mistress Lesbia, this recording encompasses the major love poetry written between the 8th century BC and the 2nd century AD. Translations are by British poets including Dryden, Pope, Johnson, Marlowe and Byron.
Music: Debussy, Granados, Purcell, Romantic French Music
