The article discusses the relationship between Apollonius Rhodius and Callimachus. After a brief survey of the ancient biographical evidence I argue that it can be more profitable to look at what the actual texts tell us about the ways in which these two Hellenistic poets carried on a metapoetic dialogue in which claims of divine protection, aspects of structure and chronology, genre and (ideological) contents as well as a certain need for poetic ‘sobriety’ were important issues. The aim is to give an indication of what was at stake between these two poets and inspire further investigations along similar lines. Apart from the literary-historical aspect of the interaction between Callimachus and Apollonius in III BC this approach should also be important in creating a firmer basis for the understanding of their reception in Latin poetry.
