A Poética Calimaquiana e sua Influência na Poesia Epigramática


This book collects texts presented at the international event Quinta Semana de Estudos sobre o Período Helenístico: a Poética Calimaquiana e sua Influência na Poesia Epigramática, held at the Faculdade de Filosofia Letras e Ciências Humanas and at the Museu de Arqueologia e Etnologia of the Universidade de São Paulo, between September 20 and 23, 2017. This is a collection of papers that discuss aspects of the poetic program defended in Callimachus's surviving poems and the influence they had on the creation of literary epigrams from the 3rd century BC. The book, therefore , presents not only reflections on the exposition of the metapoetic discussion undertaken by Calimachus in order to defend a style of composition, but also explores the reception of this debate in the generations of subsequent poets, including, among others, Mnasalcas, Antipater of Sidon, Meleager, Martial, Horace, and Gregory of Nazianzus.
