The Metres of the Greeks and Romans free pdf Excerpt from The Metres of the Greeks and Romans: A Manual for Schools and Private Study The Translators of the following work have long felt the necessity of a treatise on the Greek and Roman Metres, as a general book of reference, to accompany the text books used in colleges in teaching the ancient languages. No manual suited to supply the deficiency has appeared in English. The great work of Hermann has been abridged and translated by Seager- but the distinguished German is so much attached to certain philosophical views of Kant, on which his theory of metre is founded, that great as are the merits of the Elementa in a scientific point of view, it is not found to answer very well the purpose of a practical manual. The treatise of Dr. Munk has been most favorably received wherever it is known- his theory of metre is essentially the same as that which Bockh unfolded in his essay "de Metris Pindari," which, says the author of the present work, "recommends itself not only by the historical grounds on which it is constructed, but also by its truth and intelligibleness." The work of Dr. Munk, here presented in English, it is believed, will be found to contain a very accurate and thorough account of the metrical systems of the Greeks and Romans- and as complete an elucidation of all the details of those systems, as can now be given. The introduction condenses into a few pages the facts in the historical development of the ancient metres which are elsewhere scattered over many volumes.
