On Coming After: Studies in Post-Classical Greek Literature by Richard Hunter

By Richard Hunter

This booklet gathers jointly the various important essays of Richard Hunter, whose paintings has been primary within the smooth re-examination of Greek literature after Alexander and its reception at Rome and somewhere else. on the center of Hunter’s paintings lies the excessive poetry of Ptolemaic Alexandria (Callimachus, Theocritus, and Apollonius of Rhodes) and the narrative literature of later antiquity (‘the historical novel’), yet comedy, mime, didactic poetry and historical literary feedback all fall in the scope of those stories. critical recurrent issues are the makes use of and game of the prior, the modes of poetic allusion, the ethical reasons of literature, the highbrow context for historic poetry, and the interplay of poetry and feedback. What emerges isn't really a literature shackled to the previous and cowed by way of an ‘anxiety of influence’, yet an lively and always experimental engagement with either previous and present.
