Summary
  • "With contributions written by leading experts in the field, this volume explores the dialogue between Archaic and Classical Greek epigrams and their readers. The authors examine questions surrounding the identity of the speakers and the addressees. They also discuss the spatial, religious, historical and political contexts of epigram, as well as aspects of intertextuality, poetic variation and the creation of epigrammatic sub-genres. Collectively the volume demonstrates that the dominant view of epigram as a genre that became literary and artistic only in the Hellenistic period has to be revised. Archaic and Classical Greek epigrams did not simply serve the objects they describe but also demonstrate a high degree of aesthetic and literary achievement. This volume breaks new ground in the study of the genre and is important for scholars of classics, archaeology, epigraphy and papyrology"--Provided by publisher
  • "Epigram stands apart from other early Greek poetic genres by being from the start a written genre, and moreover by being a written genre with a fixed physical context. In the case of sepulchral epigram this physical context is that of a grave or a cenotaph, thus making the epigram an integral part of a monument, a physical object in a fixed place, commemorating one or more persons"--Provided by publisher
