This is a reissue of the authoritative 1961 critical edition of Apollonius of Rhodes' Argonautica, the greatest epic poem of the Alexandrian period.

`H.'s translation succeeds admirably in being sensitive both to the needs of a Greek learner who is grappling with the original and to the exigencies of fluent English. In maintaining this balancing-act he manages not to stray from the spirit and content of the Greek. H. treats the original with the respect it deserves. His version is accompanied by detailed notes and an index, together with a clear, concise introduction to the poem and its place in the Alexandrian tradition. Lecturers planning a Classics-in-translation course for Greek epic need look no further than this volume for an accessible translation which will stimulate student interest and imagination. This book will be the standard English-language translation of Apollonius' Argonautica for many years to come.' R.J. Clare, University of Leeds, Journal of Hellenic Studies, Vol. 116, 1996
