      ARATUS OF SOLI. Aratus wrote the Phaenomena, a poem about astronomy which was much admired by the Greeks and Romans; The lives are translated from the Greek text in 's edition of the Scholia ; The numbers in red are the page numbers in Martin's edition.. 1. The family and life of Aratus. 6 The father of the poet Aratus was Athenodorus, and his mother was Letophila. I would like to point out that Callimachus has deliberately used the word κυκλικόν in an ambiguous manner. For the fact that Hellenistic poets liked to use language ambiguously cf. my Studies in Theocritus and Other Hellenistic Poets, Amsterdam, , pp. 37 f.

      About the Book. Epigrams, the briefest of Greek poetic forms, had a strong appeal for readers of the Hellenistic period ( B.C.). One of the most characteristic literary forms of the era, the epigram, unlike any other ancient or classical form of poetry, was not only composed for public recitation but was also collected in books intended for private reading. She has published several books on Hellenistic poetry: Studies in the Hellenistic Epyllion (), Theocritus' Pastoral Analogies: The Formation of a Genre (), Poetic Garlands: Hellenistic Epigrams in Context (), and The Guide to Hellenistic Literature ().

      Theocritus (/θiːˈɒkrɪtəs/; Greek: Θεόκριτος, Theokritos; fl. c. BC), the creator of ancient Greek bucolic poetry, flourished in the 3rd century BC. Little is known of Theocritus beyond what can be inferred from his writings. Start studying History, Chapter 8, Lesson 4.

Theocritus and the Style of Hellenistic Poetry* Of the major poets of the third century it is perhaps Theocritus who most invites us to reflect upon what we think we know about Hellenistic poetry and upon the usefulness, or otherwise, of the label itself.

Theocritus was not—as far as we know—a scholar-poet, that figure identified by Rudolf. 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.

In the series London Studies in Classical Philology, edited by Giangrande, H. White has devoted two volumes almost completely to Theocritos.

Theocritus and the Archaeology of Greek Poetry Richard Hunter This book focuses on the hymns, mimes and erotic poems of the Greek poet Theocritus, and examines how Theocritus uses the traditions of earlier Greek poetry to recreate past forms in a way that exploits the new conditions under which poetry was written in the third century BC.

Although the poetry of the greatest figure of Greek poetry after Alexander, Callimachus of Cyrene, and his contemporaries stands at the heart of the book, the individual studies embrace the full scope of what remains of Hellenistic poetry, both high literary productions and the more marginal poetry, such as that in honour of the great goddess : Richard Hunter.

This text re-examines the relationship of Hellenistic poetry to Archaic poetry. It demonstrates how Callimachus, Theocritus and Apollonius develop their primary narrators or main narrative voices - a central feature of their poetic manner - by exploiting and adapting models from a wide range of Archaic poets and genres, including Homer, Hesiod, the Homeric Hymns, Pindar, Sappho, Archaic.

Three of these are Hymns: 16, 17, and In 16, the poet praises Hiero II of Syracuse, in 17 Ptolemy Philadelphus, and in 22 the Dioscuri. The other poems the story of Hylas and the Nymphs, and 24 the youthful Heracles. It cannot be said that Theocritus exhibits signal merit in his Epics.

About the Author Kathryn J. Gutzwiller is Professor of Classics at the University of Cincinnati. She is the author of Studies in the Hellenistic Epyllion () and Theocritus' Pastoral Analogies: The Formation of a Genre ().Format: Hardcover. Preview. Pindar’s influence on Hellenistic Poetry is well documented, though no systematic study of more than a few poems has been done.

Now, Alexandros Kampakoglou’s book provides a much more thorough overview of Pindar’s impact on four Alexandrian poets—Callimachus, Theocritus, Posidippus of Pella, and Apollonius of Rhodes. Heerink himself admits the term ‘Hellenistic’ or ‘Alexandrian’ would also have been appropriate, and indeed it would seem misleading to use the term ‘Callimachean’ when in fact, as proves to be the case throughout the book, the influence of the other Alexandrian poets is clearly seen in the later works.OAI identifier: oai:persee:article/rbph___num_59_1__t1___3Author: Jacques Schwartz.An accomplished poet and classical scholar, Barbara Hughes Fowler brings Hellenistic poetry to life for the contemporary reader.
