Summary

In this paper I explore archaic wandering poets’ representation in their poetry of themselves and of their performances. I confine myself (some comparanda apart) to non-hexameter poetry of the period down to 500 BC and to pieces that I take to be in the first instance for monodic rather than choral performance. That is one of the reasons I have decided to exclude Stesichorus; another is that in his surviving poetry itself there is almost nothing that contributes to the issues I investigate. My cut-off date of 500 BC is partly to legitimise my exclusion of Bacchylides and Pindar. But another, and better, reason for that exclusion is that even their surviving epinicia on their own merit a separate treatment, and I pursue some related issues concerning them elsewhere.1
