Representations of the ancient Greek and Roman poets are collected here. You can browse by poet or genre, as listed below, or use our search tool. The collections can also be accessed thematically by using our guides. They are work in progress: suggestions, contributions and corrections are welcome.

All of the collections are in the public domain and are freely available. This is how to quote them.

Ancient texts were digitised on the basis of out-of-copyright editions, using optical character recognition (OCR). They were then corrected and compared with current editions: marginal annotations point out issues of editorial interest.
