Greek Lyric Poetry by G. O. Hutchinson

Book Description

A comprehensive literary commentary on many of the central pieces of Greek lyric poetry, including works by Alcman, Stesichorus, Sappho, Alcaeus, Ibycus, Anacreon, Simonides, Bacchylides, Pindar, Sophocles, and Euripides. The pieces chosen are usually the longest and best-preserved; a single large poem each is taken from Bacchylides and Pindar; two odes from tragedy illustrate the adoption of lyric into drama. The volume includes the Greek texts and apparatus, which incorporate fresh work on the papyri and numerous new suggestions. Introductions to each poet set the poetry in its historical and literary context. The book brings textual and literary criticism of the poets together, providing a close and sustained analysis of important poems across the genre, and so enables the reader to see in detail the development and diversity of a remarkable body of poetry.

Greek to Latin by G. O. Hutchinson Greek to Latin, Hardback (September 2013)

Hutchinson investigates the relationship between Latin and Greek literature and shows some of the contexts in which the interaction of the literatures should be viewed. Based on an independent collection of evidence, the book draws extensively on inscriptions, archaeology, papyri, scholia, and a wide-range of texts.

Talking Books by G. O. Hutchinson Talking Books, Hardback (August 2008)

An extensive analysis of the design of Greek and Latin books of poems, using the evidence of papyri, including recent discoveries. The main poets discussed are Callimachus, Apollonius, Posidippus, Catullus, Horace, and Ovid; a chapter on Latin didactic includes Lucretius, Virgil, Ovid, and Manilius.

Greek Lyric Poetry by G. O. Hutchinson Greek Lyric Poetry, Hardback (March 2001)

This book contains the text, with commentary, of many of the central pieces of Greek lyric poetry. The texts incorporate fresh work on the papyri. The detailed commentaries concentrate on literary analysis and serious problems. There is an introduction to each poet which sets the poetry in its historical and literary context.

Cicero's Correspondence by G. O. Hutchinson Cicero's Correspondence, Hardback (March 1998)

An exploration of the letters of Cicero, a Latin prose writer, whose letters have been unaccountably neglected.

All Latin in the text is translated.
