Embedded Epigrams in Callimachus novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
During its history, epigram spread beyond its original context on monuments in a physical landscape to the bookish territory of the scroll. The Hellenistic poet Callimachus played with the aesthetic possibilities of that shift. On the one hand, writing epigrams for literary collections, he exploited the absence of material context to let readers supplement imaginatively what was no longer physically present («Ergänzungsspiel»)...

Embedded Epigrams in Literary and Inscribed Epigrams. A Response to Peter Bing novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
This article extends Peter Bing’s approach to epigrams that are framed within epigrams; it suggests that a similar dichotomy of absorption and opposition can be operative between epigrammatic frame and embedded ‘inscription’. To illustrate this literary technique and (some of ) its functions, three cases studies are presented...

An Epigraphical Response to Peter Bing’s Embedded Epigrams novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
This article considers epigraphical realities that may lie behind Bing’s embedded epigrams. In the case of the song for Sosibios, I explore an echo of epigraphic verse in the embedded epigram (praise of the dedication’s artistry) and this echo’s possible relationship to a form of that inscriptional motif of self-praise in older epinician...

Embedded Epigrams in Epigrams. Inscriptional Voices in Erotic and Scoptic Poems novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
In this paper, as a minor complement to Bing’s analysis of Callimachus’ embedding of inscribed poems into narratives, I will discuss some examples of embedded inscriptional voices in literary epigrams. I will first analyse some Hellenistic erotic poems; I will then concentrate on certain imperial epigrams preserved in book XI of the Greek Anthology...

Ghosts and Epigrams novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
This article discusses the intertextuality of Call. Aet. fr. 64 Harder between the anecdote, preserved in several sources, on Simonides and the grateful dead and Horace’s Archytas ode (carm. I 28). The correspondences between these texts notably include the use of epigram...

The Hidden Tomb and the Unbuilt Monument: Two Epigrammatic Anecdotes in Diogenes Laertius novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
In his essay, Peter Bing discusses, inter alia, an epigram inserted into Callimachus’ first Iamb, which has been preserved thanks to Diogenes Laertius. My response moves the focus from the Alexandrian poet to Diogenes, who frequently embellishes his biographical anecdotes with epigrams...

From the Scroll to the Marble. Citations d’épigrammes livresques sur des monuments figurés novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
This article presents the various cases in which one or more literary epigrams were copied on a monument and inserted in a context including painted or sculpted images. Three vases painted by followers of the Amykos Painter in the early 4th century BCE present us with a first example: on these vases, the literary epigrams enable the painter to explain or to modify the meaning of an otherwise commonplace composition...

The Palimpsest of Speech Genres in Ps.-Theocritus’ Erastes: a Response to Peter Bing novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
By employing Mikhail Bakhtin’s theory, the paper examines how various speech genres are embedded into the generic framework of the Ps.-Theocritean Idyll 23 Erastes. These include the paraklausithyron, the lament, the epitaph and the paraenesis and are uttered by a real speaker (the lover) and imaginary ones (the youth and the passer-by)...

Epigrammatic Commemoration in the Histories of Agathias novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
An embedded epigram in Book 2 of the Histories by Agathias of Myrina offers an interesting case study for analyzing the double-voicedness that emerges when one genre (classicizing historiography) absorbs another (epigram). Agathias inserts an invented epigram as documentary evidence for the victory of the Byzantine army over Frankish-Alemanni forces in Capua in 554 CE. On one hand, the epigram buttresses the ideological superstructure of the historian’s narrative of military conquest...

Oreste in Irlanda novitàdigital
Anno: 2022
The article analyses two rewritings of Aeschylus’ Oresteia written by Irish authors – Seamus Heaney’s The Mycenae Lookout and Colm Tóibín’s House of Names – investigating the common needs that motivated their interest in the tragedy and their different approach to it. In 1996, Heaney published The Mycenae Lookout, a sequence of five poems, describing the tragic event from the point of view of the sentinel, who waits for the signal of the king’s return from Troy. The background of the rewriting is the civil war in Northern Ireland...
