There are translations of four hymns of Callimachus, as well as poems by Aratus, Bion, Herodas, Moschus, Pseudo-Moschus, and a substantial selection from the Greek Anthology. An ideal companion to her recently published book, The Hellenistic Aesthetic,Barbara Fowler’s Hellenistic Poetryis both a major contribution to classical studies and an invitation to all interested readers to discover the beauty and richness of Hellenistic poetry.Fowler, Barbara H. is the author of 'Hellenistic Poetry An Anthology' with ISBN 9780299125301 and ISBN 0299125300.
