Summary
From the monumental works of Homer to the texts of the early church fathers, the ancient Greeks produced a body of literature that has been rarely equalled throughout history. A Companion to Greek Literature presents a comprehensive introduction to the wide range of texts and literary forms produced in the Greek language over a millennium, from the 6th century BCE up to the early years of the Byzantine Empire. Featuring contributions from a wide range of established and emerging scholars of Greek literature, chapters focus primarily on the changing forms and contexts of Greek literature as it evolved over the centuries. Areas explored include the production and transmission of ancient Greek texts, historic reception, individual authors, and many more. Other readings address the wide variety of genres and literary forms produced by the ancient Greeks ù including but not limited to epic and lyric poetry, oratory, historiography, biography, philosophy, the novel, and technical literature. Combining innovative scholarship with an unprecedented breadth of coverage, A Companion to Greek Literature is an indispensable reference to a series of literary masterpieces that influence and inspire readers even today. --Book Jacket
