This broad study of the Hellenistic poets of the third century B.C. provides a much-needed picture of the poetry of the period while demonstrating its quality and vitality. Hutchinson explores the works 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 the city of Rome.

Review:

`How seldom it is that a reviewer can truthfully utter the cliché, 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.' Times Higher Education Supplement

'the work is admirably scholarly and will repay the serious attention of all those interested in the area' Bruce W. Mitchell, Classical Review

'To his task H. brings important advantages: an enviable knowledge of Greek and Greek literature, real enthusiasm for what he is doing, and a very proper regard for what we cannot know about Greek literary history. There is much here that was worth saying, some of it genuinely enlightening.' Richard Hunter, Pembroke College, Cambridge, Journal of Hellenic Studies, CX 90

Synopsis:

The work of the Hellenistic poets in the third century BC has not only an important place in Greek literature, but also a particular significance for Latin poetry. Despite much technical work on the texts and language of these authors - Theocritus, Callimachus, Apollonius Rhodius, and others - previous literary criticism on most of the major figures is limited in quantity and scope. In this new paperback edition, Dr Hutchinson explores the work of the individual writers in turn, while developing a general conception of the poetry as a whole, centred around the poets' handling of tone, level, and form. The book culminates in the presentation of a fresh approach to the influence of Hellenistic poets in Rome. All quotations in Greek or Latin have been translated by the author.
