This book is an anthropology of Greek poetry written during the third to first centuries B. C. - the so-called Hellenistic period. It is intended to make available to undergraduates a selection of texts which are for the most part not easily accessible elsewhere. The volume contains a wide and representative range of poetry including hymns, didactic verse, pastoral in its cultural and historical background and a full commentary elucidates problems of language and reference in the texts. This edition should be welcomed by students and scholars alike.

Review quote

"The appearance of any annotated Hellenistic text is a matter for rejoicing. Hopkinson's Anthology is especially welcome because of the excellence of its commentary and for the judiciously chosen selections: 1,738 lines of poetry, that is, a volume of reasonable length for today's undergraduate upper-level Greek students...this text will serve as an excellent introduction to the rich variety of material we so often neglect." Jerry Clack, Classical World
