A Hellenistic Anthology

A Hellenistic Anthology
$39.99
An anthology of Greek poetry written during the third to first centuries B.C., the so-called Hellenistic period. Hopkinson makes available to undergraduates a selection of texts that are not easily accessible elsewhere. The volume contains a wide and representative range of poetry, including hymns, didactic verse, pastoral poetry, epigrams, and epics. An introduction sets the poetry in its cultural and historical background, and a full commentary elucidates problems of the language and reference in the texts.
