Comporre il mondo: l’Inno a Delo di Callimaco e l’estetica alessandrina dopo Wimmel digital Comporre il mondo: l’Inno a Delo di Callimaco
e l’estetica alessandrina dopo Wimmel
Anno: 2023
The first part of the article foregrounds Walter Wimmel’s impact on Callimachean scholarship by focusing on the key concept of ‘short form’ (Kleinform). In Wimmel’s view this novel concept explains Callimachus’ success among Augustan poets; it is also critical for understanding how the literary experiments carried out by Alexandrian poets are a reaction to the crisis of poetic language already begun in the classical age. Among recent discussions of Wimmel’s impact on Hellenistic aesthetics, J.I. Porter’s critique of the ‘ideology of λεπτότης’ is both radical and thought-provoking...

Concezioni diverse dell’alessandrinismo a Roma: Callimaco, Filita, Euforione digital Concezioni diverse dell’alessandrinismo a Roma:
Callimaco, Filita, Euforione
Anno: 2023
Analyzing how Roman poets of the 1st century BC refer to Callimachus, Philitas, and Euphorion allows us to appreciate their sensitivity to different kinds of Hellenistic poetry and ‘Alexandrian’ taste – a difference that the following ages will often overlook...

L’influsso dell’estetica callimachea nella polemica tra Asianesimo e Atticismo a Roma digital L’influsso dell’estetica callimachea nella polemica
tra Asianesimo e Atticismo a Roma
Anno: 2023
This paper investigates the reuse of terminology and metaphorical expressions, characteristic of Callimachus’ poetics, by Atticists in their polemic against Asianists. This very analysis shows how expressions, already used in rhetorical treatises concerning the two genera dicendi, subtile and grave, have been re-semanticized by the Atticists in a Callimachean manner...

Come allestire un corpus poetico: Callimaco maestro dei poeti augustei digital Come allestire un corpus poetico:
Callimaco maestro dei poeti augustei
Anno: 2023
This article aims at demonstrating that Callimachus’ work as a whole is a model for Augustan poets not only in relation to ideology, mythical themes, poetological terms and concepts, but also from a structural point of view. The example of Callimachus showed Roman poets both how to structure a single text and how to connect various separate texts within an articulated poetic corpus...

Non inflati somnia Propertii: morfologia di un paesaggio ‘callimacheo’ (Prop. III 3) digital Non inflati somnia Propertii:
morfologia di un paesaggio ‘callimacheo’ (Prop. III 3)
Anno: 2023
The warp of Prop. III 3 reveals a dense interweaving of learned suggestions of heterogeneous origins. The intertextual dialogue with the two proems of Callimachean Aetia (as well as with the Hymn to Apollo) from which the landscape pieces (Mount Helikon, sources, rivers), that form the background to the epiphanies of Apollo and Calliope, are mostly derived, reveals how, behind the lesson of the Battiades, the Propertian metaliterary language has become figurative tout court.

Wimmel interprete di Properzio: i problemi di II 1 digital Wimmel interprete di Properzio: i problemi di II 1
Anno: 2023
This article examines some aspects of Wimmel’s interpretation of Propertius II 1 (Kallimachos in Rom, 1960). The unity of II 1 has been repeatedly questioned and repeatedly defended. Wimmel believes that the presence of the theme of ‘closeness to death’ in the second part of II 1 is linked to the motif of ‘old age’ in the prologue of Callimachus’ Aitia; the prologue of the Aitia would therefore be imitated by Propertius both in the first part, containing a recusatio addressed to Maecenas in which Callimachus is mentioned, and in the second, and this would guarantee the unity of the elegy. In reality, such an argument appears very unconvincing. The difficult lines 51-56 are then examined...

Tra misure e magnificenza: lo Zeus di Olimpia da Callimaco a Marziale digital Tra misure e magnificenza:
lo Zeus di Olimpia da Callimaco a Marziale
Anno: 2023
The article, after an initial review of certain or eventual reception of Callimachus as ‘art historian’ in Latin literature, reexamines the iambus 6 on Phidias’ Zeus at Olympia. The value of the composition is much debated. That Callimachus, with the insistence on measurements, alludes to the Herodotus’ rhetoric of wonder is suggested by the perhaps Ionic word used fifteen times by Herodotus for expense, anaisimōma, otherwise rare...
