    Dialect and Poetic Self-Fashioning in Hellenistic Book Epigram Taylor Coughlan Several Hellenistic book epigrammatists wrote their own self-epitaphs, which likely held important positions in their poetry books, appearing at the close of a section or the conclusion of the entire collection (Reitzenstein and Wilamowitz ).   Medieval and early modern book curses typically are formulaic and not highly literary.[4] With a speaking object engaged in direct address, this Hellenistic-era book curse belongs to the more creative genre of epigram. The existing literature on Hellenistic epigram seems to have overlooked it. Yet it has considerable literary merit.

    hand, the variation in presentía in early epigrams on stone consisted in alternating comp-lementary voices, being therefore a rhetorical device to heighten the effectiveness of com-munication (maintained in Hellenistic paired stone-epigrams), while it assumed the characteristic of aesthetic literary emulation only in Hellenistic literary epigram. They also discuss the spatial, religious, historical and political contexts of epigram, as well as aspects of intertextuality, poetic variation and the creation of epigrammatic sub-genres. Collectively the volume demonstrates that the dominant view of epigram as a genre that became literary and artistic only in the Hellenistic period has to be 4/5(2).
