[B-Greek] Psalms and Greek poetry

I'm interested in whether the Greek translations of psalms
exhibit poetic features. I realize they may incidentally
record Hebrew poetic features, but was there any attempt on
the part of the translators to render the psalms as good,
Greek poetry? If someone could point to some features and
examples, or perhaps better, reference any good studies that
have been done on the topic, I'd appreciate it. I'd never
really thought about looking for  this sort of thing, but it
occurred to me while translating a psalm from Greek that
it's probably a relevant issue.
