Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
Henry Chamberlin’s delightful translation of Theocritus, which we published a year ago with the title, Late Spring, is now followed by an equally fine rendering of Moschus and Bion, thus completing the work of the three outstanding bucolic poets of all time. As in the earlier volume, Chamberlin has adopted poetry as his medium. So far as possible, he has put himself in the place of the poets and their audience, and reproduced the effect they made upon their readers. Lovers of poetry and of classical antiquity will agree that once more Chamberlin has succeeded in a difficult task.
