Fertilis immaduit madefactaque terra caducas Concepit lacrimas ac venis perbibit imis; Quas ubi fecit aquam, vacuas emisit in auras. Such an analysis of the blank spaces in Ovid is greatly aided by the juxtaposition of the myth’s treatment in the Metamorphoses with Zbigniew Herbert’s contemporary rewriting of the myth the focus of the second half of this paper.

Forged from a partnership between a university press and a library, Project MUSE is a trusted part of the academic and scholarly community it serves. Mario Torelli interprets Marsyas as a symbol of plebeian libertasunder- stood specifically as a freedom from want.
Augustus also reinforced the association of his person with Apollo by, for in- stance, dedicating a statue of himself with the deity’s attributes in Apollo’s temple. Another descendant of Marcius Rutilus, L. Marsyas was sometimes considered a king and contemporary of Faunusportrayed by Vergil as a native Italian ruler at the time of Aeneas.
Project MUSE promotes the creation and dissemination of essential humanities and social science resources through collaboration with libraries, publishers, and scholars worldwide.

Marsyas was killed for picking up apoll double-piped double reed instrument known herbeet the aulos.
That is, Apollo’s art can share the space of Marsyas’ssuffering only by giving it a form that allows aesthetic contemplation precisely because it de-humanizes the suffering.
Reading and interpreting Herbert’s poem rereads and reinterprets Ovid’s text; “filling in” Ovid’s silences implies “filling in” those of Herbert as well. Skip to main content.

This dis- tancing has encouraged Karl Galinsky to link Ovid’s gory imagination to the Roman indulgence in the amphitheater spectacles and to read Ovid’s lines as a reflection of a typically Roman delight in cruelty.
The juxtaposition of these two versions not only becomes a magnifying glass for examining the aesthetic choices of both poets, but also reveals how they sought to avoid political repercussions by manipulating their material.
Wiseman, “Satyrs in Rome? This lament is indeed disturbing since the weeping shepherds, fauns, forest deities-all stock figures of the pastoral landscape-do not belong to the realm of raw violence perpetrated against Marsyas’sbody.
No space is left for new creation after the scene of Marsyas’s suffering. Hugo Claus based his poem, Marsua included in the Oostakkerse Gedichtenon the myth of Marsyas, describing the process of flaying from the perspective of Marsyas.
AsJocelyn Penny Small rightly points out, the mythological figures of antiquity tend to be judged from whatever view dominates the surviving sources. Athena, intending to entertain the Olympians by playing the flute is mocked by the gods and retreats to Mount Ida to play alone.

Since freedom of speech was limited both in Ovid’s Rome and in Herbert’s Poland, the two poets encode messages that could not be ex- herbrt otherwise.
Yet, it may be that this treatment of the myth is neither transitional nor accidental. In both versions, the figure of the satyr is reduced to blood-soaked herebrt. The Liberaliacelebrated March 17 in honor of Liber, was a time of speaking freely, as the poet and playwright Gnaeus Naevius declared: The string – if it is not a synexdoche of the lyre or the lute – becomes a symbol of new poetry, which results from twentieth century catastrophes, but does not totally reject classical tradition though compared to it, it is only partial and incomplete.
As a witness to the scene, the tree is marsjaez, drained of youth and vitality, turning grey instantly, like the hair of someone faced with a horror be- yond endurance. Herbert’s transformation of the Ovidian anatomy lesson into landscape also par- allels his transformation of Marsyas’s howl into narrative, as the satyr “tells the inexhaustible wealth of his body.
Herbert acknowledges his revisionaryposition by,on one hand, recon- structing Ovid’s treatment of the myth and, on the other, by metamorphosizing it for the new historical and individual context. Although the old augural forms had gone through a crisis of decentralization in the second century BCE, they remained essentially unchanged until the time of the principate, when Augustus initiated a new augural 10A primary means of augury was to scan the sky.

Such stylistic devices mark Ovid’s sympathy for the satyr by involving the reader in the horror marsjaaz Marsyas’s suffering. Perhaps because the figure of Marsyas was too explicitly connected with the question of civic freedom, Ovid seems to have been reluctant to dwell upon the myth.
Likewise, in the Metamorphoses Ovid subverts the epic, the literary genre best suited to Augustus’s program of cultural classicism. The usurpation of the prophetic power of independent augurs by those associated with Apollo and controlled by Augustus left no room for the Marsyas of the Republic. karsjasz
Eventually, the augural gesture was com- pletely divorced from its religious connotations and was translated into the civic realm as, according to Servius, “a sign of liberty indicium libertatis “whereby Marsyas’s “raised hand erectamanu calls to witness that nothing is lacking in a city” Serv.
