Poetry and Poetics from Ancient Greece to the Renaissance
A tribute to James Hutton, Kappa Alpha Professor Emeritus of
Classics at Cornell University from 1961 to 1973, this volume
presents ten original essays concerned with literary, philological,
and historical criticism of poetry. The authors, all scholars of
distinction, have written essays that reflect the breadth and
variety of Professor Hutton's literary concerns. The works studied
include epic, lyric, philosophical, and elegiac poetry, and the
poets range from Homer to Ezra Pound by way of Greek, classical
Latin, medieval Latin, Renaissance Latin, French, and English
