Φιλόδημος ο επικούρειος / Philodemos of Gadara

Let's start with a beautiful Ancient Greek erotic poem written by the Epicurean philosopher and poet Philodemos of Gadara (1st century B.C.) and performed by professor Niklas Holzberg from the University of Munich.

Enjoy!

Where can we find the original Greek text of that poem?
It is not in the Perseus data base...

I am SO addicted to learning Greek! It's all I've been doing in my spare time!

I have 4 "books" on my computer, with 4 chapters each. Although I've only completed 4 lessons out of 64 total, I already feel really good about what I've learned so far!

And I'm learning that Greek, like English can be CONFUSING.

- The letter that looks like a "B" is pronounced like a "V", the letter that looks like a "V" is pronounced like an "N", the letter that looks like a "Y" is pronounced like a "G"...sometimes, there seems to be 2 letters for "O", there seems to be 2 letters for "I", there seems to be 2 letters for "S", you add an "EI" to the verb when referring to a female, and an "OS" when referring to a male...unless it's plural, in which case you do the OPPOSITE.

LOL! But English is no better. In fact it's probably even more convoluted and tangled!

But I'm trying my best, and having a blast!

Perhaps you know Mark Twain's comments on German: http://de.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mark_Twain#...man_Language.27

Zitat
"A person who has not studied German can form no idea of what a perplexing language it is. Surely there is not another language that is so slipshod and systemless, and so slippery and elusive to the grasp.
