Hexameter is the meter of Homeric poems and hymns by Callimachus. Theocritus’ Idylls and several less known poems written in course of late antiquity are also examples of hexametric texts. This monograph is a description of Greek hexameter since VIII c. BC till V c. CE from phonetical and metrical point of view. The beginning gives a detailed account of extensive hexametric texts which form the material of the book. The minute description of formal peculiarities begins with general information and proceeds to the previously unpublished results of the author’s research. Statistical data show the development of basic phonetical and metrical features of the hexameter throughout its history and is supplemented with several case studies that are aimed to demonstrate possibilities of this approach.
