Selected pages Title Page. Son of Oeneusfrom Calydon Aetolia. Apoolonio arrived the same day they left Lemnos, on the advice of Orpheus, since there were secret rites here that could protect sailors. Her role as a romantic heroine seems at odds with her role as a sorceress. Las Argonauticas Home of Jason, its harbour Pagasae was starting point for the voyage. The place where they rested is now named Argo Harbour. Clare, The Path of the Argo: Hera thinks the daughter of the Colchian king might prove useful if she could be argonauticaz to fall in love with him.
She contemplates suicide, opens her chest of drugs looking for poison but instead selects a drug that will help Jason in his trial of strength. The first trace of the common tradition that Jason was sent to fetch the golden fleece argonauuticas Aeathe city of Aeetesin the eastern boundaries of the earth, occurs in Mimnermus ap. The Sun, who traversed the sky in a boat during the day, returned at night in the same boat via the underworld, a cycle associated with cosmic life and death. Jason steps forward.
Secretly fortified by Medea's spells, he manhandles the monstrous oxen and sows the deadly field with teeth. He pauses briefly for a drink then, cheered on by his comrades, returns to the scene of action, where an army of men is springing from the broken soil, ready to attack him. These he routs single-handedly, relying on a trick taught him by Medea. Dumbfounded, Aetes returns to the palace, all the while wondering how best to cheat Jason of his promised reward.
Book 4[ edit ] The poet calls upon the Muse to describe Medea's state of mind: is it shame, alarm or love that leads her to flee Colchis?
Her treason is already known to her father and self-poisoning seems like an option again. She decides instead to flee Colchis with her nephews, the sons of Phrixus, camped with the Argonauts by the river. Doors open for her by magic as she hurries barefoot though the palace, and the moon laughs at her outdoors, recalling the many times that she was captured and brought to earth by Medea's cruel love spells a reference to the moon's passion for Endymion.
Arriving at the camp, Medea warns the others about her father's treachery and offers to help steal the Golden Fleece from its guardian serpent. Jason solemnly pledges to marry her, she puts the snake to sleep with a spell and then the hero takes the Fleece back to the Argo, exulting in its sheen like a young girl who has caught moonbeams in the folds of her gown.
The fugitive Argo is pursued by two Colchian fleets, ships numerous as flocking birds. One of the fleets sails into the Propontis through the now-motionless Clashing Rocks. The second is led by Medea's half-brother, Apsyrtus, and it takes the same route as the Argo, up the river Ister Danube. A distant branch of the river eventually leads the Argonauts into the Sea of Cronus Adriatic , where Apsyrtus finally corners them on the Brygean Islands.
Fearing the worst, Medea comes up with an alternative plan. She lures Apsyrtus into a trap with promises of rewards. Jason murders him and the body is dismembered to avoid retribution from the Erinyes. The leaderless Colchians are easily outwitted and, rather than return home empty-handed to a wrathful Aetes, they disperse and settle around the nearby coast.
Indignant at the brutal murder, Zeus condemns the Argonauts to wander homeless for a longer term. A gale blows them back north and they enter the river Eridanus Po , whose different branches eventually bring them into The Sardinian Sea Gulf of Lyons , on the western side of Ausonia Italy.
Here the enchantress Circe absolves the lovers of blood-guilt. Meanwhile, Hera has a friendly chat with the sea nymph Thetis.
The goddess advises the nymph that her infant son Achilles is destined to marry Medea in the Elysian fields and then she sends her on an errand to secure the Argo's passage south. The Argonauts safely pass the Sirens , whose music however causes Butes to fall overboard; they get past the Wandering Rocks , from which Argo is saved by the Nereids , like girls on the beach passing a ball to and fro.
Thus the Argonauts arrive at Drepane Corfu off the western coast of Greece.

It is here they encounter the other Colchian fleet. Alcinous , the virtuous king of Drepane, offers to mediate between the two sides, later confiding in his virtous wife, Arete, that he means to surrender Medea to the Colchians, unless she happens to be married.
The queen reveals this to the lovers and they are duly married in a sacred cave on the island, where the bridal bed is draped with the Golden Fleece. Disappointed, the Colchians follow the example of the first fleet and settle nearby rather than return home.
The Argonauts can't return home either: another gale drives them off course, this time south towards the Syrtes , an interminable sandbank off Libya. Here they can see no means of escape and they resign themselves to an inglorious end, parting from each other to die in private, while Medea and her maids lament their fate in a forlorn group. Jason's isolation soon ends with a visit by three nymphs, the guardians of Libya, with mysterious instructions about how to survive.
Peleus interprets the instructions on his behalf: they must carry the Argo across the desert.
Twelve days later, their ship on their shoulders, they arrive at Lake Triton and the garden of the Hesperides. They receive some astonishing news from the Hesperides: Heracles raided the garden just the day before.
He has already vanished into the distance and so they must depart without him yet again. Meanwhile, they lose another two comrades, Mopsus and Canthus, one dying from snake bite, the other from a wound inflicted by a local shepherd belonging to the ancestral family of the native Garamantes and Nasamones. Shortly afterwards, Triton reveals a route from the lake to the open sea and entrusts Euphemus with a magical clod of earth that is destined to become the island of Thera, from which Libya would later be settled by Greek colonists.
Triton carries off a tripod, as an offering of thanks. The story ends with a visit to the island of Anaphe , where the Argonauts institute rites in honour of Apollo, and Aegina not far from Jason's home , where they establish a festival competition, fetching water and racing one another with full amphoras on their shoulders.
Callimachean epic[ edit ] The Argonautica is modelled on Homer's poetry to a profound extent.
There are of course similarities in plots. The Argonautica is notable too for the high number of verses and phrases imitating Homer, and for the way it reproduces linguistic peculiarities of old epic, in syntax, metre, vocabulary and grammar.
Apollonius in fact is the most Homeric of all the poets whose work has come down to us from the Hellenistic age, when Homeric scholarship flourished and almost all poets responded to Homer's influence, including Callimachus. When Jason first meets Hypsipyle in Book 1, he wears a cloak made for him by Athena, embroidered with various scenes alluding to tragic women that Homer's Odysseus met in Hades Odyssey This Homeric echo has ominous connotations, prefiguring Jason's betrayal of Hypsipyle and Medea.
Argonautica includes numerous aitia or mythological accounts of the origins of things see Argonautica Itinerary below and these ensure that the narrative points forward to the world of the third century audience rather than back to Homer. Apollonius is too much of an individual for us to deduce from his work the nature of the other epics.
Thus even though modelled on the Homeric epic, it is much shorter, with four books totaling fewer than 6, lines Homer's Iliad for example runs to more than 15, Apollonius may have been influenced here by Callimachus ' advocacy of brevity.
More particularly, there are some pointed allusions to his work. For example, one line 1. Carspecken: "chosen leader because his superior declines the honour, subordinate to his comrades, except once, in every trial of strength, skill or courage, a great warrior only with the help of magical charms, jealous of honour but incapable of asserting it, passive in the face of crisis, timid and confused before trouble, tearful at insult, easily despondent, gracefully treacherous in his dealings with the love-sick Medea According to a less hostile view, he resembles the ordinary man and his brand of heroism is relevant to the real world, whereas Heracles stands for a primitive and anachronistic kind of heroism, which is why he is abandoned early in the story.
In this world, people are alienated from each other and from their environment, as symbolized by the Libyan desert, where the Argonauts scatter so as to die privately: "effort no longer has the power to transform, and weakness is as influential as strength.
Her role as a romantic heroine seems at odds with her role as a sorceress. These contradictory roles were embedded in the traditional accounts that Apollonius inherited.
Apollonius Rhodius’ epic poem, the Argonautica, is one of the most
On the other hand, Apollonius emphasizes the technical aspect of her magical powers, such as her mastery of drugs, a touch of realism that may seem to downplay her role as a sorceress. Heracles can be seen as something of a buffoon. His homosexual or pederastic relationship with Hylas is covered only obliquely and even then in a humorous way, as if to set the stage for the more serious relationship between the hero and heroine.
They appear comic precisely because these fairy-tale elements are in contrast to the Argonauts' unheroic stature, as people like you and me. The gods in particular are characterized by Alexandrian realism. Homer's gods also are more like people than divinities but Apollonius provides them with a liveliness, an orderliness and a degree of banality that evoke domesticity in Alexandrian high society. Much of the poem's irony and charm in fact lies in the conflation of these different worlds.
Though Heracles is abandoned at the end of Book 1, he continues to haunt the narrative as a background figure, glimpsed in the distance and reported as an active presence, thus symbolizing the way traditional epic offers the poem a literary background. As one scholar recently observed: "This is just the way in which old epic with its generic conventions and its ideology is present in the Argonautica: dimly visible Homer in the Odyssey also uses the device, through the singers Demodocus and Phemius.
In Argonautica, the role is performed by the doomed seers Mopsus and Idmon, and especially the singer Orpheus. Whereas the companions of Homer's Odysseus pass the Sirens in safety by stuffing their ears with wax, the Argonauts are saved from the Sirens by the music that Orpheus plays to drown them out. The contest symbolizes the updating of epic. The seers Idmon and Mopsus, able to interpret signs, might also be understood to represent the ideal audience, able to interpret symbols.
Other characters however can also fulfill this role, such as Peleus, who successfully interprets Jason's encounter with the Libyan nymphs, thus leading to the Argo being carried across the desert. Homer's Odyssey also features some disunity, as a set of adventures, with surprising discoveries waiting around every headland.
Thus Longinus contrasted the Odyssey unfavourably with the Iliad: in the former, he thought the mythical element predominates over the action, whereas he thought the Iliad gains dramatic tension through the development of a single, great contest.She decides instead to flee Colchis with her nephews, the sons of Phrixus, camped with the Argonauts by the river.
As part of the community of scholar-poets working under Ptolemaic patronage Apollonius was well positioned to appreciate their political inter- ests. But the character of the evidence, and of the literature and of other aspects of the time, seems to discourage attempts to approach the literature by constructing the period.
Asper, Apollonius on Poetryp. Jason murders him and the body is dismembered to avoid retribution from the Erinyes.
Hera thinks the daughter of the Colchian king might prove useful if she could be made to fall in love with him.
