Here is a nice site:
Lots of literature
To understand Greek Literature, you need to understand Homer:
Some Hesiod Poetry:
In fact, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greek_l...lassical_Greek
Many of the poets are listed here, and you can find numerous external links to Universities who have these works in e-book formate.
You should also look at Byzantium Literature, it is also very good.

Greek and Latin were one of my former majors in college. Apart from the usual Homer and Hesiod, Greek lyric poetry, although most exist in fragments, will also give you a different, interesting glimpse of Greece-Archilochus, Sappho, Pindar, Mimnermus..etc
And of course the tragedians-Sophocles, was my favorite... I like what I now am studying but I sure miss those days-when college work afforded the constant company of those Greeks....
