Greek epigram - and more - on Comfort Classics

Cora Beth of the Open University runs a very useful website that classics fans ought to know about, Classical Studies Support. I've contributed a feature on the Greek Anthology to its regular interview slot during the pandemic, Comfort Classics. Here's the direct link to mine, but there's lots more.

I've linked to this before, but I'm doing so again because quite a conversation has developed with a fellow fan of ancient Greek poetry, Frederick Armour, who has contributed his own interview on Pindar. You'll find this conversation in the comments section underneath my post. If you've basic questions about Greek epigram and the Anthology, you might find something helpful there.

But don't stop there! There are now dozens of Comfort Classics posts, covering all kinds of ancient authors and artefacts; the latest for now is by an Open University MA student, Tom Mason, on Greek philosophy going into Latin verse in Lucretius and Ovid.
