Example text

Although (or perhaps because) Arachne’s tapestry wins the day, Minerva destroys it, and then thwarts Arachne’s ensuing suicide attempt by transforming her into a spider. In book 10 the two best-known performances of the legendary Orpheus, in the underworld and in Thrace, are presented by Ovid in full. In the first, he sings to the gods of the underworld to persuade them to release his dead wife, Eurydice. He succeeds, but loses Eurydice a second time when he turns to gaze at her on the way out of the underworld.

608–728). Again the power of persuasion is at work, this time in a private and erotic rather than a public and social setting, as Venus urges her husband, Vulcan, to create armor for a son fathered by another (albeit mortal) man. She alludes to Thetis’s successful request in Iliad 18 (te filia Nerei / te potuit lacrimis . . 376). The weakness of Venus’s appeal only serves to highlight the fact that Vulcan’s obligation to her is marital only, not a reciprocal sense of duty as in Thetis’s case. The motivation in this scene will instead be Eros, the irresistibility of Venus, marking a shift from the Iliad’s concern with mh`ni~, anger, and its impact on society, to the Aeneid’s preoccupation with the impact of amor on Roma.

Damoitas and Daphnis in Idylls 6 also present longer, self-contained poems. The thematic responsion so evident in the songs of the Metamorphoses contest is also characteristic of many bucolic songs; in Eclogues 3, for example, Menalcas responds to the themes and views expressed in each of Damoetas’s stanzas (Jupiter vs. Apollo, Galatea vs. ). 662–78). As is so often true in this poem, however, similarities between the Metamorphoses passage and its models only highlight the innovations of Ovid’s practice.
