Summary

This paper addresses two points in the long, complex and fascinating story of the relation of Latin lyric poetry to the songs of the seventh/sixth century poet of the Mytilenean elite, Alcaeus. The first concerns Catullus, and departs radically from the current communis opinio. The second concerns Horace’s interpretation of Alcaeus’ ship-poems, and may be judged to be less iconoclastic.
