9780198140405: Hellenistic Poetry (Oxford University Press Academic Monograph Reprints)

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.

About the Author:

G. O. Hutchinson is at Exeter College, Oxford.

Review:

'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
