9780199783045: Callimachus: The Hymns

Callimachus was arguably the most important poet of the Hellenistic age, for two reasons: his engagement with previous theorists of poetry and his wide-ranging poetic experimentation. Of his poetic oeuvre, which exceeded what we now have of Theocritus, Aratus, Posidippus, and Apollonius combined, only his six hymns and around fifty of his epigrams have survived intact. His enormously influential Aetia, the collection of Iambi, the Hecale, and all of his prose output have been reduced to a handful of citations in later Greek lexica and handbooks or papyrus fragments. In recent years excellent commentaries and synthetic studies of the Aetia, the Iambi, and the Hecale have appeared or are about to appear. But there is no modern study in English of the collection of hymns. And while there are excellent commentaries in English on three of the hymns (Apollo, Athena, Demeter), the commentaries on Zeus and on Delos are limited in scope, and there is no commentary at all on the Artemis hymn. Synthetic studies in English for the most part treat only one hymn, not the collection, and tend to focus on Callimachus' intertextual relationships with his predecessors and/or his influence on Roman poetry. Yet recent work is requiring scholars to broaden their perspective and to consider Callimachus' religious, civic, and geo-political contexts much more systematically in attempting to understand the hymns. A further incentive is that apart from the Homeric and Orphic hymns, Callimachus' are the only other hymns that have survived intact; those written in earlier periods are now reduced to fragments. For these reasons a study of the six hymns together is a desideratum. An additional reason is that Callimachus' collection of six hymns is very likely to have been an authorially arranged poetry book, quite possibly the earliest such book that we have intact; therefore, it allows a unique perspective on the evolution of the form.

This volume offers a text and commentary of all six hymns for advanced students of classics and classical scholars, as well as interpretive essays on each hymn that integrate what has been the dominant paradigm-intertextuality-into a broader focus on Callimachus' context. Her introduction treats the transmission of the hymns, the potential for and likelihood of the Homeric hymns as models, the hymns as a poetry book, their language and meter (especially in light of recent work done on this topic), performance practices, and their relationship to cult, court, local geographies, and panhellenic sanctuaries. For each hymn Stephens presents the Greek text, a translation, and a brief commentary containing important information or parallels for interpretation.

About the Author:


Susan A. Stephens is Sara Hart Kimball Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Classics at Stanford University.

Review:


"This new Callimachean commentary has a modest goal: "to provide readers with a convenient and accessible edition of all six of Callimachus' hymns in one volume, accompanied by notes sufficient for ease of reading" (p. vii). S(tephens) has in fact produced a very helpful edition which more than fulfils this ambition and will be of much use to readers of Callimachus' hymns, especially those tackling his work for the first time. Alongside considerable linguistic help, S. offers concise yet lively interpretations of these poems, succinctly distilling the fruits of past scholarship while also adding new interpretations of her own." --Thomas J. Nelson, Mnemosyne


"...Stephens shines in illuminating Callimachus's imagery and engagement with the Ptolemaic court. She preserves balance, not overwhelming newcomers with detail yet offering new insights for scholars. ... [T]his volume provides a needed and accessible edition of the collection. Stephens's scholarship and sensitivity to Callimachus's poetry suffuse every page. Invaluable for those interested in Hellenistic poetry; important for students of mythology, history of religion, and Greek literature. ... Highly recommended." --CHOICE


"...Stephens...integrates the best of modern scholarship with her own insights to provide a rich and up-to-date guide to the hymns. ... Stephens has produced a deeply learned and highly useful work that should be warmly welcomed by scholars and students alike." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review


"I would recommend this book to classicists who are interested in the Hymns and want to know more about them. Graduate students studying for their exams are another natural audience. It certainly is a book that I will keep close at hand." -- The Classical Association of the Middle West and South
