    In the first edition of this book, Lefkowitz argued that we have very little reliable data about such poets as Homer, Euripides and Callimachus, since the ancient biographical traditions are primarily fictional creations that derive from apparent hints in their poems and plays. The updated second edition refines this assessment, offering a wider perspective and a more sympathetic picture of the biographers' efforts, as well as revealing the insights they provide into ancient notions about the creative process.
