Greek Epigram from the Hellenistic to the Early Byzantine Era

Edited by Maria Kanellou, Ivana Petrovic, and Chris Carey

  • Covers a broad chronological range from the Hellenistic to the early Byzantine period in order to impart a sense of the evolution of the epigram as a literary form across the centuries
  • Explores the dynamic interactions between poets, illuminating both the contemporary poetic culture and its engagement with the Greek literary past
  • Sheds light on the interaction between 'literary' and inscribed epigram, as well as on the ways in which epigrammatists engaged with other poetic forms and with Latin poetry and the visual arts
  • Investigates the process of editing and compilation which created the collections which survived into the modern world
