Example text

Lyne and Williams both come close to noticing this when (in the passages of their criticism quoted earlier) they compare and contrast Corinna’s arrival in Ovid’s chamber with the arrival of Lesbia at the trysting house of Catullus 68 (70–5): quo mea se molli candida diva pede intulit et trito fulgentem in limine plantam innixa arguta constituit solea, coniugis ut quondam flagrans advenit amore Protesilaeam Laudamia domum inceptam frustra . . 20 Stephen Hinds There with gentle foot my fair goddess made an entry, and set her shining step on the worn threshold, pressing on her sounding sandal: even as once burning with love for her husband came Laudamia to the house of Protesilaus, that house begun in vain .

And now the day was ended, and the time was coming on which you could call neither darkness nor light; it was the borderland of dubious night, yet with some light. Ovid may be a supremely rational poet; but that does not mean that we should deny to him (any more than we deny to, say, Euripides) an interest in the irrational.

1–2): Cynthia prima suis miserum me cepit ocellis, contactum nullis ante cupidinibus. Cynthia first captured me with her eyes, poor unfortunate, previously touched by no passion. Propertius begins his book with a plunge into obsessive love: let us give that primary level of meaning its due weight. But also, simultaneously, he uses his mistress’s name to hint at his Apolline initiation into erotic elegy, an initiation not so very far removed from another poet’s more overtly divinized change of life (Virgil, Ecl.
