Chapter Summary

This chapter presents commentary on the poems of Solon. Solons elegies, as oral poems, would have changed their identity in every performance including the wholesale incorporation of poems from various other sources: our text of Solons elegies is therefore not a record of the poetry composed by the historical Solon in the early sixth century.

Keywords: early sixth century; oral poems; Solon
