Translations into English of the epigrams of Anyte of Tegea and Meleager of Gadara, The Anacreontea (late Greek imitations of the love and drinking lyrics of Anacreon), and a selection from the pastoral poems that were written in Latin by the humanists of the Italian Renaissance. Richard Aldington was prominent in several literary capacities; most notably as a founding poet of the Imagist movement and as a novelist who conveyed the horror of World War I through his written works. He was also a prolific critic, translator, and essayist. Though he considered his novels to be his most important works, he received much critical attention for his biographies of such.

The Greek Anthology contains some 4, short Greek poems in the sparkling and diverse genre of epigram, written by more than a hundred poets and collected over many centuries. To the original collection, called The Garland (Stephanus) by its contributing editor, Meleager of Gadara (first century BCE), was added another Garland by Philip of. The son of Eucrates, Meleager was educated in Tyre and later moved to the island of Cos in the Aegean, where he wrote poetry and epigrams, many of which have survived. His satirical prose has been lost. He wrote short, elegiac poems on love and death, many of which are included in the Greek Anthology.

The Greek Anthology (’Gathering of Flowers’) is the name given to a collection of about short Greek poems (called epigrams but usually not epigrammatic) by about composers. To the collection (called ’Stephanus’, wreath or garland) made and contributed to by Meleager of Gadara (1st century BCE) was added another by Philippus of. meleager of gadara is one of those increasingly rare greek authors whose works are somewhat known to many classicists but whose influence on ancient and later literature remains underappreciated. Meleager’s anthology of Greek epigrams called the Garland produced Latin imitations shortly after its creation in the early first century b.c.e., and allusions to Meleager’s own, mostly erotic.
