Callimachus and Lycophron by Callimachus( Book )

3 editions published between 1955 and 1960 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CALLIMACHUS of Cyrene, 3rd century B.C., became after 284 B.C. a teacher of 'grammar', and poetry at Alexandria where he was made a librarian in the "University' and prepared a catalogue of the books in its library. He died about the year 240. Of his large published output, only 6 hymns, 63 epigrams, and fragments survive (Loeb Nos. 421, 129). The hymns are very learned and artificial in style; the epigrams are good (they are also in the Loeb Greek Anthology volumes). LYCOPHRON of Chalcis in Euboea was a contemporary of Callimachus in Alexandria where he became supervisor of the comedies included in the new library. He wrote a treatise on these and composed tragedies and other poetry. We possess Alexandra or Cassandra where-in Cassandra foretells the fortune of Troy and the besieging Greeks. This poem is a curiosity -- a showpiece of knowledge of obscure stories, names, and words. ARATUS of Soli in Cilicia, c. 315-245 B.C., was a didactic poet at the court of Antigonus Gonatas of Macedonia, where he wrote his famous Phaenomena (Appearances). He visited Antiochus I of Syria but returned to Macedonia. His work is an imitation of Eudoxus' prosework on astronomy, and cicero, germanicus Caesar, and Avieenius translated it into Latin; Cicero's survives in fragments only; the other versions are more complete, Avienius; being a paraphrase

Callimachus : Hecale by Callimachus( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adrian Hollis's second edition of Callimachus' Hecale includes an English translation of the original Greek text. Twenty years after the first edition appeared in 1990, close study of the Byzantine poets, scholars, and clerics who knew Callimachus' poem intimately has allowed significant progress in our understanding of the poem. Equally valuable are two Byzantine lexicons which clearly had access to an ancient commentary on the Hecale; an Attic vase, which provides our first artistic representation of the myth; and an inscribed Greek elegy from Kandahar, which suggests that Callimachus' 'miniature epic' was known to a Greek poet working in that remote bastion of Hellenism - additional proof of the poet's importance within Hellenistic culture

Callimachus: the hymns by Callimachus( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides a compact and readable edition of all six of Callimachus' hymns. An extensive introduction considers the literary and performance contexts of earlier hymns, the dating of Callimachus' hymns, literary influences on the hymns, the transmissions of the texts, and the poet's language, meter, and aural and visual effects. Each hymn is prefaced with a discussion of specific parallels and intertexts, and the hymn's relationship to cult, court, local geographies, and Panhellenic sanctuaries. There follows a Greek text with translation and a commentary designed to facilitate understanding of Callimachus' hymns as a unique literary experiment. -- from back cover
