Although the Coptic language had been in use for centuries, the tenth-century saw an outburst of literary activity in Coptic and particularly in Coptic poetry. In the present articles, combined here into one work, Hermann Junker provides a detailed discussion of the features of this poetry and includes the original Coptic text and German translation for many of these poems. In his introduction, Junker describes poetic features such as meter, notation, syllabification, verse, and strophe, each supplemented with numerous examples from the poetry to illustrate the point. Junker also includes a discussion of orthographic, translational, and syntactical issues that arise in the publication of such texts. Junker’s thorough discussion would serve well as an introduction to the field of Coptic poetry, and his inclusion of so many examples accompanied by translations makes this work essential for anyone wishing to pursue the topic of Coptic poetry.
