Nice one, Craner, I found a cheap 2nd hand copy of the penguin edition on Amazon.

Might get the George Chapman translations of Homer too at some point, I like the few extracts I've read in that Ezra Pound anthology.

There's so many layers to these little Hardy poems I've posted on this page. Very loose translations of ancient Greek, you've got Shakespeare, French, German and even Persian references there too, and looking forward to Pound's hard imagism and modernist ideas about literature existing on a single, timeless, plain, plus Hardy's own idiosyncrasies.
