Hellenistic Poetry: An Anthology (Wisconsin Studies in Classics)

by

Hellenistic Poetry: An Anthology (Wisconsin Studies in Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An accomplished poet and classical scholar, Barbara Hughes Fowler brings Hellenistic poetry to life for the contemporary reader.  Her selections engage us with the full range of Hellenistic poetic genres, styles, themes, and moods.  The anthology includes Fowler’s new translation of the entire Argonautica of Apollonius of Rhodes, and eight of Theocritus’ Idylls, including the beautiful, sensuous description of late summer in Idyll VII and the shrewdly comical description of two young matrons venturing into the noisy streets of Alexandria in Idyll XV.  There are translations of four hymns of Callimachus, as well as poems by Aratus, Bion, Herodas, Moschus, Pseudo-Moschus, and a substantial selection from the Greek Anthology.

    An ideal companion to her recently published book, The Hellenistic Aesthetic, Barbara Fowler’s Hellenistic Poetry is both a major contribution to classical studies and an invitation to all interested readers to discover the beauty and richness of Hellenistic poetry.

Synopsis:

This book may serve as a companion to "The Hellenistic Aesthetic" by the same author.
