Description - Tradition and Innovation in Hellenistic Poetry by Marco Fantuzzi

Hellenistic poets of the third and second centuries BC sought to mark their continuity with the classical past as well as demonstrate their independence from it. This major study explores Greek poetry of the period and its reception and influence in Rome. The volume covers some of the most familiar poetry of the age, such as Callimachus' Aitia, alongside detailed consideration of newly published texts like the epigrams of Posidippus.
