Full description for A Hellenistic Anthology

  • 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.
