Abstract

The Planudean, copied in the fourteenth-century autograph Marcianus gr. 481, was between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries the single known garland of Greek epigram, having had, therefore, a huge influence in modern poetry and culture in general. As a didactic text it was for Renaissance students of Greek and Latin, it was frequently their first contact with Greek literature. Poets and other writers made a large use of it. Erasmus is an example, he who copies and comments in his Adagia about 50 components, alongside Alciato’s Emblemmata, first published in 1492, where a much larger number of epigrams are illustrated, translated into Latin and commented. This volume offers in translation the epigrams transmitted by Planudes that are absent from the Palatinus, nowadays published as Book XVI of the Greek Antholoy. The larger part of them (356 out of 392) comes from chapter IV of the Marcianus, a collection of ecphrastic poems. Among them are the components dedicated to the charioteers of Constantinople (numbers 335-386), which archaeology proved to have been actually inscribed.

Abstract

This volume of the series Greek Anthology gathers, under the possible title Miscellaneous Epigrams, books IV, XIII, XIV and XV of the collection. First, the Prefaces written by the three primordial anthologists (Meleager, Philipp and Agathias). The remaining books, absent from the Cephalean garland as they seem to be, are mostly playful texts, poetic exercises on metrics (book XIII), arithmetic, riddles, enigmas, and oracles (book XIV). About book XV, it must be read as the locus spurius where the Palatine scribe put the pieces on whose poetic and semantic value he himself doubted. Special is the case for the technopaignia, ancient model of visual poetry.

Abstract

Book XII of the Greek Anthology, the one this volume first offers in Portuguese translation, gathers around 260 epigrams united by the homoerotic subject they all develop. Besides a small group of components devoted to heterosexual love, erroneously included in the collection by scribers and here translated as well, they all deal with the model of a love-relationship between an adult (the so-called erastes, the top-lover) and a teenager (the eromenos, supposed to be the bottom). The Boyish Muse’s immediate parallel is Book five of the Greek Antholoy, devoted to heterosexual love. Nonetheless, a first reading of both of them sheds light on their similarities, enhancing several common topics and images, themselves prove enough of a same reality that is celebrated – both the joys (rather few) and the (many) pains of love.
