Example text

Cynicism in Horace Epistles 1 39 Is self-sufficiency possible? Which should be one's guide in life, virtue or pleasure? If virtue, Stoic or Cynic virtue? If pleasure, pleasure of a gross (Aristippean) or a higher (Epicurean) kind? - and so on, all questions that are in fact treated in Epistles 1. It is also significant that both 1,1 and 1,2 end with Horace in a recognisably Panaetian stance: his final philosophical 'solution' to all these questions is already anticipated. 33 2. Epistles 1,1034 At first sight the philosophical orientation of this poem seems Stoic.

Burd. /3,6(Simonides); Opuscula 8,1 (Vergil); Sid. Apoll. Carm. 9,130 (Homer); Ven. Fort. Carm. 7,8,25-30 (Homer, Vergil); 8,1,1-6 (Homer). Dracontius mentions Apollo and the Muses only in his pagan poems. Paulinus rejects them and contrasts them with Christ. Cf. my 'De Musis apud Ausonium et Paulinum Nolanum' forthcoming in Acta Omnium Gentium ac Nationum Conventus Latinis Litteris Linguaeque Fovendis a Die XXXMensis Augusti ad Diem V Mensis Septembris A. MDMCCCCLXXXI Augustae Treverorum Habiti.

His 'joy' (50: laetus), while real, is incomplete without Fuscus. This point seems to be emphasized by the repeated laetus (50, 44): Fuscus' more relaxed stance seems to provide something that in the last resort Horace's austere ideal cannot. ). 52 The philosophical content of Epistles 1,10 has been greatly underestimated. Many of the effects stem from manipulation of philosophical ideas. The poem does have a philosophical argument and that argument, with Horace first adopting, and then, point by point, rejecting, extreme Cynic-Stoic self-sufficiency, in favour, initially, of Panaetian relativism and, finally, of Epicurean friendship, is tight.
