This chapter examines further the importance of scholarship and research in classical poetry translation, with particular reference to the translation of fragmented works by Greek and Roman women poets. Through discussions of poets such as Corinna, Telesilla, Praxilla, Hedyle, and Erinna, and translations from Josephine Balmer’s Classical Women Poets (1996), as well as versions by Diane Rayor and Michael Longley, it explores the creative leaps that working on such incomplete, tattered sources might require.

Keywords:   classical poetry translation, Greek women poets, Roman women poets, Corinna, Telesilla, Praxilla, Hedyle, Erinna, Josephine Balmer, Diane Rayor, Michael Longley
