Generic Enrichment in Vergil and Horace

S.J. Harrison

Oxford University Press

Clearly transitional between the Eclogues and the Aeneid, this poem shows generic strain in its second half, especially in the proem to Book 3 with its anticipation of martial epic, and in the Aristaeus section at the end of Book 4, where the interplay of questions of literary form and political commitment is brilliantly explored (Homeric, neoteric, Hesiodic, Hellenistic).

Keywords:   Georgics, Hesiod, Homer, Neoteric, Epyllion, mock-epic
