Michael Ayrton’s “Archilochos” is an interpretive exploration of the ancient Greek poet Archilochus, combining Ayrton’s illustrations with translations of the poet’s fragments. The book, published in 1977, also includes an introductory essay by classical scholar G.S. Kirk. Ayrton’s work offers a blend of visual art and poetry, shedding light on Archilochus’s impact on Greek literature and his legacy as a pioneer in personal and provocative verse. Condition: some light spotting to top edge of text-block and some light spotting to the top left corners of few pages, otherwise very good.
