'[This book] contains much detailed, close argumentation ... [the] greates strength is its constant awareness of the dangers posed by fragmentary texts. If the books only virtue were to push readers back to unsupplemented texts and reconsideration of every piece of evidence, that would be enough to recommend it: and it does a good deal more than that.' – Journal of Hellenic StudiesFrom the Publisher:
This book examines the arrangement and interpretation of the recently published papyrus fragments named the 'new Simonides', and questions the current assumptions on which most modern scholarship is based. The author argues that these fragments should be considered as pieces of an as yet undetermined poem with a more broadly defined scope than is currently accepted. The text shifts the direction of modern scholarship, which focuses almost entirely on the longest of the new fragments, as a representation of the so-called 'Plataea Poem'. The first monograph devoted to the study of the 'mew Simonides', it will be of great interest to those studying the 'new Simonides', early Greek elegy, Greek history and historiography of the Persian Wars.
