Beschreibung:

The Hellenistic poets of the third century BC, such as Theocritus, Callimachus and Apollonius Rhodius, have not received enough critical attention. This book provides an overview of their poetry and its influence on Latin literature.
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.
