What poetry to read for a Greek beginner?

I've just finished J. W. White's First Greek Book and am about a quarter way into North and Hillard's Greek Prose Composition. I'd really like to start reading some poetry in Greek.

Being a little bit further in latin I've taken to Cattulus and find it quite do-able; I'm looking for something similar in Greek.

Recommendations anyone?

So many ways to go

I've noticed in the few months I've been studying Ancient Greek that there are several words for "go." I'm wondering if there's a subtle difference between each one that someone here might be able to explain to me.

This will be the first time I'm trying to write in Greek characters here, so hopefully this will come out okay.

Here are the words for "go" that I've encountered so far:

i)e/nai

e)/rxomai

bai/nw

badi/zw


Hope ...

SWZOMENOIS

In the Bible in 1 Corinthians 1:18, the word "SWZOMENOIS" is an adverbial participle dative plural, right? And it should be translated out as " are being saved?" Is that correct?

Question about 'Romanized' Greek words

I have been coming across some weird words in my study and several of them contain the 'v' letter, which is not in the Greek Alphabet. It this a result of the Roman Conquest of Greece? or is this like Coptic?

Year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses last rev.?

Hi,

Would anyone know the year of Goodwin's Syntax of the Moods and Tenses of the Greek Verb last revision? I have found a copy based on the 1889 edition. Would that year be the last revision year?

Thank you.

Oedipus help

Hopefully someone with a knowledge of ancient Greek can answer my question. In the exodos of the Sophocles' play Oedipus Rex, the translation says:
From one to another of us he went, begging a sword,
Hunting his wife who was not his wife

Does the original greek word for hunting refer to seeking or hunting with intent to kill?
