history of lyric poetry[edit]

Obviously this article should include a brief history of Greek Lyric poetry. A good starting point is Jebb's work on Bacchylides - for anyone interested (not me just yet) but resource-challenged (like me unfortunately) here is a copy: Google digitalized version Amphitryoniades (talk) 00:44, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Nine muses pic[edit]

Why is a picture of the nine muses in this article? Are they associated with the Nine Lyric Poets any more closely than simply being "considered the source of the knowledge, related orally for centuries in the ancient culture, that was contained in poetic lyrics and myths"? If not, they probably should be replaced by depictions of some of these specific poets (which can be found in the individual articles). - dcljr (talk) 23:51, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
