Translated title:
The sides of Dionysus in hellenistic poetry
Summary:
The constant presence of God Dionysus in Hellenistic poetry. The multiple archaic aspects of God are not lost, but they evolve into the Hellenistic world. The usual side of Dionysos as the god of wine responds to the epigram and elegy of the Hellenistic period, and the wine becomes a poetic symbol. Hellenistic Dionysus continues to be associated with the world of theater, and drama is spreading beyond the city-state of Athens. The god of the theater becomes the patron of the artistic associations of the technitai around Dionysus and the protector of the newly created literary genre of the mimiamb. Hellenistic Dionysus is also the god of the ceremonies of the post-mortem life. The evolution of the maenadism is literary reflected in the epigram and the hymns. The presence of Dionysus in the epic of Apollonius and Hellenistic epyllia allows for a comparative approach with its Homeric image. The hunted god of Homer becomes the victor of the Hellenistic world.
