Kaegi's Greek Grammar

First published in 1884, Kaegi's Greek Grammar was designed for beginning students with this principle in mind: "The study of grammar is but to aid the reading of Greek."

In its 21st edition, the book remains an excellent tool for helping students achieve Greek literacy.

Asclepiades of Samos and Leonidas of Tarentum : The Poems

Asclepiades of Samos and Leonidas of Tarentum set the course that later Greek epigrammatists would follow in their choice of subject matter. To Asclepiades, the epigram was a vehicle for personal feeling; in the hands of Leonidas the field was broader, dwelling often on the suffering that attends the poor and destitute.

Dioscorides and Antipater of Sidon : The Poems

Of all the Greek epigrammatists, Dioscorides and Antipater of Sidon perhaps most faithfully represent the Hellenistic society's reaction to a rapidly changing world — its introverted individualism. Their epigrams, distinguished by conciseness and range of themes, express the ephemeral nature of happiness and the inevitability of death. These epigrams — with their brief scope, intriguing subject matter, rhetorical flourishes, and intricately embroidered thematic variation — offer an enjoyable and attainable introduction to Hellenistic epigram.
