Abstract:
The thesis consists of a commentary on the Hymn to Apollo of Callimachus. In the introduction, the difficulties of the dating of the hymn and the problems of the poem's general interpretation are briefly discussed; a synoptic summary of the style of the hymn is'included. The line-by-line commentary deals in detail with questions of diction (especially from the point of view of the traditional language of Greek epic ), style, and content. Particular attention is paid to passages the interpretation of which has eluded previous critics. The lemmata are taken from the text of R. Pfeiffer (Oxford, 1953), with only ä few minor exceptions : in'these cases the reasons for diverging from Pfeiffer's text are fully discussed. A bibliography gives full particulars of books and articles referred to in abbreviated form in the body of the commentary
