This collection of texts is designed to supplement those currentlyavailable for use in courses on Hellenistic poetry. Most have neverbefore appeared in a similar collection; several have only recently beendiscovered. The individual commentaries have been written by theleading international scholars on Hellenistic poetry, and are designed tohelp the reader with more difficult aspects of the language, as well as toprovide some basic guidance to each poem's literary value and relevantscholarship.

The text of each poem is presented, together with basic help on obscurevocabulary, morphology, dialect, meter, syntax, and similar philologicalissues. The modern commentators also offer guidance on a poem'sliterary significance and a brief introduction to the scholarship.

Among the 44 named and anonymous poets represented here areApollonius of Rhodes, Archimedes, Aristotle, Callimachus, Cercidas,Corinna, Eratosthenes, Erinna, Ezekiel, Hermesianax, Herodas,Lycophron, and Phanocles.

Contributors to the volume in addition to David Sider include: SilviaBarbantani, James Clauss, Dee Clayman, Christophe Cusset, ClaudioDe Stefani, Marco Fantuzzi, Andrew Ford, Kathryn Gutzwiller, JohannaHanink, Regina Hoeschele, Richard Hunter, David Konstan, PaulineLeVen, Kelly MacFarlane, Enrico Magnelli, Jackie Murray, Pura Nieto,Maria Noussia, Douglas Olson, Floris Overduin, Richard Rawles, RalphRosen, Chad Schroeder, Alexander Sens, Evina Sistakou, Michael Tueller,and Athanassios Vergados.

Although designed primarily as a textbook for graduate students andupper-level undergraduates, the book offers texts and subsidiaryinformation not easily found (if at all) elsewhere. Since Latin poetsmade constant allusion to Hellenistic poetry, it will also be an importantresource for Latinists.
