Sappho by Sappho( Book )

9 editions published between 1958 and 1986 in English and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These hundred poems and fragments constitute virtually all of "Sappho" that survives and effectively bring to life the woman whom the Greeks consider to be their greatest lyric poet. Mary Barnard's translations are lean, incisive, direct - the best ever published. She has rendered the beloved poet's verses, long the bane of translators, more authentically than anyone else in English
If not, winter : fragments of Sappho by Sappho( Book )

4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A bilingual edition of the work of the Greek poet Sappho, in a new translation by Anne Carson. Sappho lived on the island of Lesbos from about 630 B.C. She was a musical genius who devoted her life to composing and performing songs. Of the nine books of lyrics Sappho is said to have composed, none of the music is extant and only one poem has survived complete. All the rest are fragments. In If Not, Winter Carson presents all of Sappho's fragments in Greek and in English. Brackets and space give the reader a sense of what is absent as well as what is present on the papyrus. Carson's translation illuminates Sappho's reflections on love, desire, marriage, exile, cushions, bees, old age, shame, time, chickpeas and many other aspects of the human situation."--Jacket

The complete Omar Khayyam by Granville Bantock( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first edition of Fitzgerald's verse translation of "The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám" had been on the scene since the mid-nineteenth century. By the end of that century it had achieved five editions and quasi-Shakespearean status. The quatrains are rich in quotations — extracts eventually took up multiple columns in the Oxford Dictionary of Quotations. The subject matter was also daringly anti-religious and must have had an appeal to the increasingly literate, sceptical, and professional classes. Havergal Brian quotes Ernest Newman on the subject of Bantock's Omar: "…it brings into English secular music, for the first time, the thoughts and feelings of men brought up in the full tide of modern culture and modern humanism." The work is scored for three soloists, a large chorus and a very large orchestra. The strings are divided into two complete string orchestras, one on either side of the conductor, a device by which Bantock procured a number of new a nd subtle effects. In the first decade of the twentieth century no other secularphilosophical work existed on such a scale. Omar was widely performed during the first half of the 20th century, but since Bantock's death in 1946, performances have been dependent on anniversaries and external historic events. This studio recording was the product of 11 years planning by a single BBC producer determined to preserve one of the most astounding choral works ever created. It remains, 37 years later, the only complete recording ever made of the work
