Approximately a third of the chapters are devoted to explaining how our present corpus of Callimachus has come about and what the guiding assumptions have been in collecting book fragments or editing papyrus fragments. The contributors provide information on Callimachus’ linguistic experiments, his use of nonpoetic sources, and the relationship of his prose writings to his poetic corpus. We have also emphasized the importance of his contemporary social context. Since so much of his surviving poetry is about and for the Ptolemies, we have included contributions that focus on these kings and queens; but equally important are his divinities, his interest in cult, and contemporary literary-critical and musical trends.
