As often happens with ancient literary genres, most divergences on iambos in contemporary scholarship are due to a basic disagreement on what literary genres are. This chapter presents a view of literary genres that derives from studies on categorization that the cognitive sciences have developed in the fields of psychology, anthropology, linguistics, and the growing field of cognitive poetics. It discusses approaches to the genre and corpus of iambos.
