This volume contains the text of eight poems by the third-century B.C. Greek poet Theocritus, together with an introduction and extensive commentary. This is the first full-scale commentary on the work of Theocritus since Gow's edition of 1950, and is the first to exploit the recent revolution in the study of Hellenistic and Roman poetry. It offers new readings of all the poems, which show both how Theocritus differs from subsequent pastoral poetry, and how his poems, through their influence on Virgil, established the Western pastoral tradition. First full-scale commentary on these poems for almost 50 years First commentary to concentrate on the literary significance of the texts Richard Hunter has published many books with the Press, including Theocritus and the Archaeology of Greek Poetry (1996), and Apollonius of Rhodes: Argonautica III (CGLC 1989)
