"For the poet Virgil, who made the descent when he was writing his Aeneid, it was unforgettable. For Rufus, the Roman narrator of this memoir, the Underworld was his way of life. In his dirty tunic and straggly false beard, he doubled as the fabled boatman, Charon." "His truly was an unparalleled life: a respected citizen and father above ground and a surly mythical boatman of the river Styx below. This double life was to end when Rufus faced possible execution for murder. As he tells us his story, fully describing the greatest scam of classical antiquity, Charon's narrative is simultaneously irreverent, lustful, philosophic and spiritual. Above all, it is entertaining and full of suspence." "This memoir from the Augustan age takes an intimate and uncritical look at the mores and morals of the period, from the practice of orgies to the mystery cult of the Orphies. Charon's almost visual descriptions of the Roman Hell will haunt the reader, and the cast of characters, topped by Virgil and the prophetic, truly revered Sibyl of Cumae, will entice. As the end of an oracular era, stretching back some 700 years, approaches, the narrative's tension will enthrall." --Book Jacket.

This book is a unique and exciting collection of Greek Lyric Poetry and Tragedy. Poetic gems by the great ancient Greek lyricists from the seventh to fifth centuries B.C. - Sappho, Archilochus, Simonides, Ibycus, Pindar, Alcman, Mimnermus, Stesichorus, Phrynichus, Xenophanes are presented in new verse translations. Here you will also find two Greek Tragedies - Laodamia and Stheneboea - reconstructed from two lost plays by Euripides, the Athenian dramatist of the fifth century B.C. Laodamia deals with a womans Orphic quest to fetch her dead husband from the underworld. Stheneboea is based on the myth of Bellerophon and is a tale about adultery, murder, and deceit. Meager, tantalizing fragments of Euripides lost plays and ancient plot summaries provided the inspiration for these modern dramatizations of ancient Greek myths.
