Tibullus Beyond Elegy: Poetic Interference Across Generic Boundaries novitàdigital
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
This paper argues for the need for further engagement with the poetry of Tibullus, particularly with respect to his use of a wide range of poetic genres in his Elegies, but also at a textual-critical level. Close readings of II 5 and I 1 reveal programmatic allusions to (inter alia) epic, pastoral, and philosophic discourses.

Hopeful Poetry: Tibullus’ Spes and Her Literary Lineage novitàdigital
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
This paper shows how Spes in Tibullus II 6 is a literary construct re-elaborating Greek models (Hesiod, Theognis) and how the allusion to these is intertwined with and signposted by co-occurring allusions to other authors (Theocritus, Apollonius). The result of such stratified intertextuality is Tibullus’s appropriation of disparate literary portrayals of ‘hope’ to the code of Roman love elegy.

Anno: 2021
This paper discusses Tibullus I 4 with particular attention to three Callimachean intertexts, namely Iambus 9, Aetia fr. 41 and Iambus 3. Iambus 3 in particular proves to be a crucial intertext for the last portion of Priapus’ lecture on love...

Polemical Allusion to Lucretius in Tibullus novitàdigital
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
The basic argument in this paper is twofold: first, that Lucretius serves as an important target of allusion in Tibullan elegy; second, that through allusions to the De Rerum Natura Tibullus affirms the validity of the elegiac view of love over Lucretius’ Epicurean perspective. Tibullus’ allusions to Lucretius are primarily polemical. On the one hand, Lucretius represented for Tibullus the first hexameter Latin poet who wrote extensively about the human experience of love...

Roleplay and Wordplay in Tibullus: the Reverberation of Horatian Iambic novitàdigital
di Ian Goh
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
Tibullus’ sixteen canonical poems owe a debt to Horace’s invective Epodes, sixteen of which are in metres that feature alternating lines. Play and playfulness, in particular proleplay and wordplay, typify the creative dialogue between these poetry collections...

Before Ibis: Invective Elegy in Tibullus novitàdigital
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
This paper argues that Tibullus’s elegies provide a key precedent for the anomalous combination of invective subject matter and elegiac meter found in Ovid’s Ibis. Tibullus innovated within elegy by incorporating magical and invective elements not native to the genre, which he integrated through a strategy of self-presentation as a prophet figure...

Inter Tibullos: Name-Checking Tibullus in Renaissance Latin Poetry novitàdigital
Formato: Articolo | AEVUM ANTIQUUM - 2021 - 21
Anno: 2021
Twentieth-century neglect of Tibullus is offset by the prominent position accorded to the elegist in earlier literary catalogues of elegiac, amatory and other poets. Latin authors of the Renaissance are enthusiastic in their praise of Tibullus, often employing terminology borrowed from or modelled on expressions in ancient literary criticism, and engagement with Tibullus’ own texts can likewise be used to convey appreciation of the poet’s literary stature...
