Callimachus' Book of Iambi
Oxford University Press, Arnd Kerkhecker, Tutor in Classics and Deputy Dean of Degrees Arnd Kerkhecker
Clarendon Press, 1999 - Literary Criticism - 334 pages
This book offers a detailed discussion of Callimachus' collection of Iambi, arguably one of the earliest surviving Greek 'books of poetry'. There are chapters on individual poems which examine the evidence for the text, and address questions of linguistic and antiquarian detail. Each chapter attempts an interpretation of each poem as a whole, and considers the arrangement of the poems within the book.
