Biography of Corinna (s. V a. C.)


Greek poet born in Tanagra, Boeotia. It seems that he lived during the 5th century BC, or in the 3rd century BC, where he started the beocia spelling. He wrote about beocios issues; among his works include: seven from Thebes, Iolao and the return of Orión. He used the dialect boeotian without rejecting some Homeric expressions, the lower Ionic dimeter and the coriambico diameter in their combat of Kithairon and Helicona nomoi and the daughters of Asopus.
