Amarilis y la belleza de Zacinto
voces de poetas en el idilio 4 de Teócrito
Keywords:Theocritus, bucolic genre, metapoetry, intertextuality, Aristophanes
Theocritus’ id. 4 has been considered by some scholars as an example of rural mime; the fact that the poem, a unique case in the Corpus Theocriteum, does not contain any pastoral song or contest contributes to the impression of ‘realism’. This lack could be an obstacle for the poetological approach to the bucolic genre in antiquity, which considers metapoetry as its main feature. Our reading of the idyll shows that this limitation is only apparent.
