Editorial Reviews

Review

The Shadow of Callimachus offers a nuanced and provocative reading of Roman poetry as it struggled to find its own voice amidst the din of so many Greek masterpieces. Through his magisterial command of ancient literature and modern scholarship, everywhere in evidence in his latest book, Hunter has enhanced our appreciation of the lengths to which poets in the Late Republic and Augustan era went to emerge from the shadow and bask in a light now fully their own. --BMCR

Book Description

Examines the Roman reaction to, and adoption of, the Greek poetry of the last three pre-Christian centuries. The critical readings offered embrace not just the central figures of Callimachus, Theocritus and Apollonius of Rhodes but the full scope of what remains of Hellenistic poetry.
