Scrinium Classical Antiquity

Book Description Condition: New. Cambridge University Press, 1994. 240p. Paperback. Back cover creased. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics - Imperial Library. 'This companion volume to the editor's A Hellenistic Anthology (Cambridge University Press, 1988) is, because of the relative inaccessibility of the material it presents, even more valuable than its predecessor. (.) What Hopkinson serves up(.) is the following (in approximate order of line-count): The whole of Hero and Leander, nearly 350 lines chosen from the Halieutica and Cynegetica attributed to Oppian, the whole of the Actaeon episode from Nonnus (Dionysiaca 5.287-551), the episode of Paris and Oenone from Quintus Smyrnaeus (Posthomerica 10.259-489, with cuts), and 23 epigrams (189 ll.) from the Anthology. The collection opens with six Anacreontic poems and closes with three fables of Babrius - perhaps the most immediately accessible and attractive material here, and wisely placed - and also includes a brief Orphic hymn, an excerpt from the astrological poem attributed to Manetho, and a short piece by the Hadrianic lyricist Mesomedes. (.) No doubt I want better bread than is made of wheat. Let us be happy with what we have, for that is a great deal. Hopkinson's anthology, along with the subseries of Cambridge school texts to which we owe it, represents the entry into a form accessible to undergraduates with a few years of Greek of much material that was hitherto far less accessible. It also represents a very welcome byproduct of the decay of the canon-based study of ancient Greek and Latin literature.' (ROBERT LAMBERTON in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 95.04.09). Condition: New.
