This broad study of the Hellenistic poets of the 3rd century B.C. provides a much needed picture of the poetry of the period while demonstrating its quality and vitality. Hutchinson explores the work of such writers as Theocritus, Callimachus, and Apollonius of Rhodes--developing a general conception of poetry that centers around the poets' handling of tone, level, and form--and offers a fresh analysis of the influence of Hellenistic poetry on that of Rome.

'the work is admirably scholarly and will repay the serious attention of all those interested in the area' Bruce W. Mitchell, Classical Review `How seldom it is that a reviewer can truthfully utter the cliche, that a book meets a long felt need ... we have until now lacked an up-to-date book combining broad sweep and detailed scholarship ... this is a remarkable book, full of fresh thought and unparaded learning, from which we all have much to learn' Richard Jenkyns, Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford, Times Higher Educational Supplement
