Lang, Andrew: Helen of Troy, v.1, 27 April 2008.
Not content with translating Homer, Andrew Lang composed this epic poem on the life of Helen of Troy.
As a bonus, here’s a very short poem by Dorothy Parker:
Words of Comfort to Be Scratched on a Mirror
Helen of Troy had a wandering glance;
Sappho’s restriction was only the sky;
Ninon was ever the chatter of France;
But oh, what a good girl am I!
Of making many books there is no end [Ecclesiastes, 12.12]
