About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1929, this book presents a comprehensive examination of the nature of Ancient Greek poetic metre, with detailed analysis of metrical characteristics and transitions unfamiliar to modern readers. The text was intended to build upon the work of the renowned classical scholar and poet Walter Headlam (1866–1908). Detailed notes and an appendices section are also included. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in Ancient Greek poetry, poetic form and literary criticism.
