From the author's Presentation(pgs. 9-10):
"During the decade of intense creativity in which he also gave us his Odes and Hymns, Friedrich Hölderlin (1770-1843) wrote his Elegies between 1797 and 1801, and revised them between 1801 and 1807.

"They are composed, like the elegies of ancient Greece, in elegiac couplets, pairs of lines where an hexameter is followed by a pentameter (six feet, then five).
