Excerpt from Greek Lyric Poets

No elegiac passages have been inserted. The greater number of those contained in the third volume of Bergk are either epigrams or epitaphs, and therefore alien to the nature of the lyric, and the elegiac metre is in itself of so marked a type, and has such widely different associa tions and effects from those of the lyric, that their introduction would have been doubly incongruous. The Anacreontea have also been omitted. They are of quite late date, and, though by no means devoid of merit, their ?uent completeness would have tended to out weigh the much higher poetical excellence of the genuine fragments of Anacreon.
