An anthology of Greek poetry written during the third to first centuries B.C., the so-called Hellenistic period. Hopkinson makes available to undergraduates a selection of texts that are not easily accessible elsewhere. The volume contains a wide and representative range of poetry, including hymns, didactic verse, pastoral poetry, epigrams, and epics. An introduction sets the poetry in its cultural and historical background, and a full commentary elucidates problems of the language and reference in the texts.

"The appearance of any annotated Hellenistic text is a matter for rejoicing. Hopkinson's Anthology is especially welcome because of the excellence of its commentary and for the judiciously chosen selections: 1,738 lines of poetry, that is, a volume of reasonable length for today's undergraduate upper-level Greek students...this text will serve as an excellent introduction to the rich variety of material we so often neglect." Jerry Clack, Classical World
