Example text

Those who work with (and within) the classical tradition have had a vested interest in its continuation or reinstatement. Initially the impetus for the study of the classical tradition was to appreciate how antiquity, especially ancient texts, shaped later times, in this case the Middle Ages. Over the last quarter century the fairly rigid and constrictive dynamic of ‘‘source and influence’’ has been enriched and complicated as the notion of reception has achieved favor (Holub 1984). Whatever bondage was latent in the metaphor of a ‘‘chain of influence’’ has been sundered, and now reception studies aim not merely to track how the classics outlasted the Middle Ages so as to be renewed in the Renaissance, but rather to appreciate how medieval people responded to them and adapted them.

Some classical texts were taught throughout the Middle Ages, and the poetry of Dante Alighieri (1265–1321) and the illustrated manuscripts of the Ovide moralise´ (Ovid moralized) make it difficult – indeed impossible – still to argue that the classics ever died during the thousand years after the fall of the Roman empire. What is more, a closer look at the so-called rebirth itself raises more questions. For example, let us return once more to Machiavelli in conversation with the ancients. The process as he describes it seems easy and natural enough: he asks them questions and they answer.

The classicizers among Medieval Latin authors showed their colors most clearly in their handling of the dactylic hexameter, which in the medieval period was the classical meter par excellence (Norberg 2004). They practiced elision, a fusion of syllables required under carefully defined circumstances; avoided a break (after the first syllable of the penultimate foot in hexameters, unless it was a monosyllable); and refrained from internal and end rhyming. The opposing camp of ‘‘modern’’ Latin poets shunned elision, allowed a caesura to fall after the first syllable in the fifth foot, and evidenced a predilection for rhyme.
