Summary
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
