Review: Bookwatch - July 26, 2001
Jerry Clack's translation and annotated text well serve the reader with an interest in Hellenic culture as expressed in the epigram.
Review by: Declan Lyons, Ph.D., Franciscan University, Ohio - July 26, 2001
[…] this text provides the neophyte with insight into not only the genre of epigrammatic writing, but also to the age and culture which engendered the genre, as well as to its otherwise inaccessible scholarship today.
Review by: Maria Marsilio, St. Joseph's University - July 26, 2001
This text will be welcomed by teachers of undergraduate Greek students who seek a lively and effective introduction to Hellenistic poetry before tackling more challenging Hellenistic authors such as Callimachus and Theocritus. Clack's book may also be used expediently in conjunction with his previously published edition of Meleager's poems.
