This volume on Appolonius of Rhodes, whose "Argonautica" is the sole full-length epic to survive from the Hellenistic period, comprises articles by 14 scholars from across Europe and America. Their contributions cover a wide range of issues from the history of the text and the problems of the poet's biography through questions of style, literary technique and intertextual relations to the epic's library and cultural reception.
