Sophron's Mimes

Text, Translation, and Commentary

J. H. Hordern

  • The first book devoted exclusively to the mimes for over fifty years, and the first-ever one in English
  • Provides a new English translation
  • Text based on the standard modern edition, but with significant additions
  • Detailed introduction and commentary, which explore not only Sophron's relationship to early, non-mime traditions such as iambus, but also his influence on Hellenistic poetry, particularly Theocritus and Herodas
