Although the Greek and Latin components are conceived as essentially independent, the arrangements of each section confirm in such a way as to facilitate the use of the two in conjunction. No comparable volume exists in English. Издательство: Hackett Publishing Company.

That Latin poetry did model its verse structures on Greek meters is certain, and it seems that in doing so Latin found no such difficulties as English does, for example, when it tries to imitate the Greek (or Latin) hexameter. But at the same time, there can be no doubt that the natural word accent played some part in Latin poetry; not only do the rules governing brevis brevians (see below, section II. 4) remain incomprehensible without a consideration of word accent, but, as we shall see below, there is a coincidence of word accent and long element in certain word groups.

This was a very useful book to explain the many subtleties. After reading this, my takeaway is that other metrical poetry was much freer than dactylic hexameter. But as I begin my foray into Greek lyric poetry, I wanted to get a better understanding of the other meters that were used. This was a very useful book to explain the many subtleties.

The Greek & Latin sections are essentually independent of each other. So, do not consider your ignorance of one a setback to the book. A must reading for anyone with serious interest in understanding Greek and Latin lannguages. 6 people found this helpful. In fact, the Latins copied the Greeks anyway, so it just seems appropriate to have these two together!

Very good intro to the subject.

This is one of the only elementary texts I've found that explains Latin meter correctly and from first principles. Handbooks of Greek meter often treat Latin in a 2-page appendix, saying little more than "The Romans borrowed all these meters." This book, on the other hand, is half Latin and half Greek, and works equally well for students starting from either language. The Latin aeolic meters are explained in terms of the glyconic, not in terms of "feet" as so many books do; this makes it easier to see how aeolic meters work and facilitates learning the Greek versions later. The meters of Plautus and Terence are explained, but saturnians are only briefly mentioned. The student of Greek is also well served by West's book (though this one is an easier read), but for Latin there is not a whole lot else that is as good.

I am an intermediate(+) Latinist (of prose) already somewhat familiar with the basic concepts of ancient verse; my knowledge of Greek is limited. Still, I find / found this book a GREAT RESOURCE!

A must for the more serious student of the subject. It's NOT for the novice, but I doubt a novice would consider something so pedagogical in the first place ... <smile>
