Professor Acosta-Hughes is a leading expert on the poetry of the Hellenistic epoch and made his reputation with his first book, Polyeideia: The Iambi of Callimachus and the Archaic Iambic Tradition (Berkeley: University of California Press, 2002): the book was praised as one of the “most significant recent publications of the field” and it “a model how this is done.” He is also the author of Arion’s Lyre: Archaic Lyric in Hellenistic Poetry (Princeton University Press: 2010). His new book written with Susan Stephens of Stanford University, Callimachus in Context, will be published September 2011 by Cambridge University Press.
