Title: Archilochus' "Cologne Epode" in context
Author: Lavigne, Donald E.
Abstract: The purpose of this contribution to the long -standing debate concerning Archilochus and his poetry is three -fold . First , I will review relevant scholarship to date , paying particular attention to what Snell and Rankin see as the interior mode of Archilochus' poetry . This concept of interiority , I will show , is an inadequate means of understanding the intricacies of Archilochean verse ; a more suitable explanation is needed . Second , in response to this need , I will consider the ideas of Kenneth Dover on Ihc naUirc of primitive song , and examine how they have been used by Gregory Nagy and Martin West . I will argue that the scholarship on Archilochus presents a bard whose poetry is largely communal and traditional .
