Sample text

But, like virtually all Roman poets, they also came under the immense influence of Callimachus’ opinions regarding poetic style. This influence becomes especially visible and nearly inescapable in the first century BCE. ” In some cases a Roman poet draws a Callimachean contrast within a single genre, as Vergil does in the sixth Eclogue to justify his singing slender, pastoral epic instead of inflated, heroic epic (3–8). But it was also common for elegy to define epic exclusively as heroic poetry and to contrast itself with epic as a “slighter” or “humbler” genre (Prop.

Am. 1). Thus the elegists tend to use Callimachean ideas and images to promote the cause of elegy at the expense of epic. Consider in this regard Propertius’ poems to Ponticus in book 1. 1–10). The poem concludes by warning Ponticus not to look down on Propertius’ efforts (cave … contemnas 25): should Ponticus ever fall in love, his expertise in heroic verse will be no use to him as he tries to write love poetry, and he will envy Propertius his elegiac skill (15–26). Here it is relevant that Antimachus was the author of an epic Thebaid that won him, according to Quintilian, second place to Homer in the Greek canon, but that was deficient in all aspects of its artistry, “so that it is really quite obvious how different it is to be close to first than it is to be second” (Inst.

The seat and wellspring of the Catullan speaker’s emotional life seems in this regard to function a lot like the thumos of a Homeric hero (Casswell 1990, Koziak 1999), albeit in the unhomeric social setting of an urban metropolis. The represented subjectivity of Propertius’ speaker, by contrast, is pretty clearly that of an imperial citizen-subject, for more reasons than the obvious fact of his submission to an autocratic ruler enacted in verbal kowtows that presumably would have sickened a Roman man like the one who speaks the poems of Catullus.
