16) A swift German translation of the Analysis, strongly promoted by Lessing--whose own meditation on snaky lines in Laokoon
(1766) De Quincey would excerpt and translate for Blackwood's Magazine in 1826--generated enthusiastic debate.
It has been more than forty years since Murray Krieger submitted his most influential essay, "Ekphrasis and the Still Movement of Poetry; or, Laokoon
Revisited," to the first conference of the Iowa Center for Modern Letters in October, 1965 (263-88).

The view of Virgil as imitative and inferior has dominated German classical philology, with its characteristic exaltation of Hellenic culture, ever since Lessing's Laokoon
(1766), chapter 18.
In 1766 lewer Lessing in Laokoon
uitgebreide kommentaar oor die simboliese betekenis van die skild wat tot vandag die onderwerp van akademiese diskoers is.
The basic distinction of the verbal and the visual art by Lessing is associated with the concepts of time and space, but the discussions about the purity of the notion of the "time based literature" and the "spatiality of the visual arts" have started shortly after publication of Laokoon
and have been specifically intensive since the beginning of the modernism in arts.
The title of Fernie's first chapter, "American Laokoon
," riffs on the famous classical sculpture Laocoon, in which the titular Trojan priest is killed along with his sons by sea serpents, an image taken from Virgil's epic Latin poem The Aeneid.
When attempts have been made to clarify these differences, such as in Lessing's Laokoon
from 1766, as in numerous other works following in this tradition, the existence of certain art forms have been taken as the starting point.
