Byline: GUEST VIEWPOINT By Cynthius Scanlon and Susan Schneider
Ecloga 6.3-5: Cynthius aurem / vellit et admonuit: 'pastorem, Tityre, pinguis / pascere oportet ovis, deductum dicere carmen.' (The text is quoted from the 1986 edition of Mynors.) This aspect--the god's address of a poet who has already begun to write an epic, recommending a poetry of lower style--is, as Cameron (1995, 454) points out, one of the crucial differences between the scene in Callimachus's Aitia prologue and Vergil's Ecloga 6.3-8.
