The goal of this site is to complement the bibliographies on archaic and classical Greek lyric, iambic and elegiac poetry collected by Douglas E. Gerber. Gerber has made an extensive and annotated overview of publications in this field between 1920 and 1989 in:

  • Gerber, Douglas E. (1989) 'Pindar and Bacchylides 1934-1987', Lustrum 31: 97-269.
  • Gerber, Douglas E. (1990) 'Pindar and Bacchylides 1934-1987 (Continuation)', Lustrum 32: 7-98.
  • Gerber, Douglas E. (1991) 'Early Greek elegy and iambus 1921-1989', Lustrum 33: 7-225 and 401-10.
  • Gerber, Douglas E. (1993) 'Greek lyric poetry since 1920. Part I: General, Lesbian poets', Lustrum 35: 7-179.
  • Gerber, Douglas E. (1994) 'Greek lyric poetry since 1920. Part II: From Alcman to fragmenta adespota', Lustrum 36: 7-188 and 285-97.

Our aim is to provide a bibliography that contains relevant publications on archaic and classical Greek poetry (including the choruses of classical drama) especially after 1989. The bibliography follows Gerber's division into genres and ancient poets, but one can also use the 'search' function in the left sidebar in order to find publications.

Members are invited to submit their own publications or other publications after 1989 missing in the bibliography by sending full references to the webmaster of this site: Caroline Trieschnigg. Please follow the format used in the Bibliography and add in which category (or categories) a publication fits.
