Adding to the original Greek Anthology, which comprises 16 books of short poems attributed to many different authors—ranging from the seventh century BC to the 10th century AD—this compilation adds a modern fictional book similar in range, tone, and variety of subject matter. The poems are amatory, religious, dedicatory, humorous, sepulchral, hortatory, declamatory, and satirical. Adopting the voices of several fictional yet familiar characters, including Heanius and Gregory of Corkus, this volume offers old and new ways of looking at the contemporary world.
