This seminar will center on a close reading of Callimachus' fragmentary elegiac Aetia. In the course of the semester we will read through all of the extant fragments of the poem; we will have at our disposal the pre-publication version of Prof. A. Harder's forthcoming OUP edition of the Aetia, as well as sections of the forthcoming Teubner edition of Callimachus' fragments (by Prof. L. Lehnus) and of the forthcoming second volume of Prof. G. Massimilla's Italian commentary. Our study together will also address questions of generic definition, elegiac tradition, narrative style, poetic persona and encomiastic court poetry; we will further consider the relationship of this poem to contemporary Hellenistic poets and its long tradition in later Greek and Roman poetry. The main focus of the seminar, however, will be the reading of all of the extant fragments of the Aetia. Students interested in both Greek and Latin poetry are encouraged to participate.
