Janko, R., Philodemus On Poems Book One
Campbell, Gordon (2002) Janko, R., Philodemus On Poems Book One. Hermathena, 172 . pp. 102-110.
This volume is the first fruit of the Philodemus Translation Project, which involves David Armstrong, Jeff Fish, Constantina Romeo, James Porter and Richard Janko, and is dedicated to the editing and publication of the aesthetic works of the 1st century BC Epicurean philosopher and poet Philodemus of Gadara. Forthcoming volumes are to include two further volumes of On Poems, and also On Rhetoric, and On Music. Dirk Obbinkâs edition of Philodemus On Piety, Part One appeared in 1996, and Part Two is expected from OUP in 2003. So Jankoâs (J.) book is part of an extraordinary and very valuable resurgence of scholarship on Philodemus and the Herculaneum papyri.
