This work aims at correcting and revising the judgement passed more than forty years ago by P.Rau (Paratragodia) on Agathon's song in Thesmophoriazusae (vv. 101-129), judgement shared even to these days by the majority, if not by the totality of scholars. According to Rau, parody would concern essentially rhythm and music (from an edonistic, virtuosistic point of view), while as regards the linguistic choice, the style would appear perfectly appropriate to this type of song. Through a detailed analysis we highlight the fact that, together with musical, linguistic-expression and aspects of content are targeted since they are characterized by an extreme formal working out, but they are absolutely empty and inconsistent on a conceptual level.

Abstract

This work aims at correcting and revising the judgement passed more than forty years ago by P.Rau (Paratragodia) on Agathon's song in Thesmophoriazusae (vv. 101-129), judgement shared even to these days by the majority, if not by the totality of scholars. According to Rau, parody would concern essentially rhythm and music (from an edonistic, virtuosistic point of view), while as regards the linguistic choice, the style would appear perfectly appropriate to this type of song. Through a detailed analysis we highlight the fact that, together with musical, linguistic-expression and aspects of content are targeted since they are characterized by an extreme formal working out, but they are absolutely empty and inconsistent on a conceptual level.
