Talking Books by G. O. Hutchinson
Book DescriptionIncreasing importance is being attached to how Greek and Latin books of poems were arranged, but such research has often been carried out with little attention to the physical fragments of actual ancient poetry-books. In this extensive study Gregory Hutchinson investigates the design of Greek and Latin books of poems in the light of papyri, including recent discoveries. A series of discussions of major poems and collections from two central periods of Greek and Latin literature is framed by a substantial and illustrated survey of poetry-books and reading, and by a more theoretical discussion of structures involving books. The main poets discussed are Callimachus, Apollonius, Posidippus, Catullus, Horace, and Ovid; a chapter on Latin didactic includes Lucretius, Virgil, Ovid, and Manilius.

Books By Author 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.
Greek Lyric Poetry, Paperback (August 2003)
This is 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. It includes the Greek texts, which incorporate fresh work on the papyri.
Cicero's Correspondence, Hardback (March 1998)
An exploration of the letters of Cicero, a Latin prose writer, whose letters have been unaccountably neglected. Showing that Cicero's letters should be regarded as artistic works, although they are bound up with personal situations, they provide a remarkable insight into contemporary culture and literature. All Latin in the text is translated.
