Example text

She uses a wide range of examples to challenge previous judgements about the role of poetry in expressing and shaping rejection of the war (and by extension also contributes to current debates about how the war was regarded at the time, as opposed to subsequently). She argues that Homer receptions in the poetry of the war as a whole actually suggest that serving soldiers continued to support the ideals for which they thought they were fighting. The volume ends with an impassioned polemic by James Porter in which he calls for teaching and research in classical reception to develop a fuller portfolio and to expand more positively into the sphere of public debate.

He thus places his poem among other poems carrying this label, like Weckherlin’s ‘Ode oder Drincklied. Anacreontisch’ and like several of Herrick’s Hesperides (published 1648, see Braden 1978: 216–17). In most cases, like here, there is some blend of innovation, indeed flaunted innovation, and seamless integration. Just as the nature of this blend varies so do its effects. In Cowley’s poem, one effect is a playful pretence of innocence. The fact that this mere translation is provocative in a context in which drink is a political issue would of course not have escaped Cowley’s readers.

This may be important when classical material interacts with non-classical or partly-classical material (for example in literary traditions). A revisionist approach to the relationship between tradition and reception is explored by Johannes Haubold and Felix Budelmann in the chapter that begins this volume. They suggest that a desire for a ‘democratic turn’ is a poor reason for shedding the term ‘tradition’ in favour of ‘reception’ and on the basis of specific examples from antiquity and beyond they argue that the reciprocal relationship between the two is fluid, both in practice and in theory.
