Download Griechische Grabgedichte by Werner Peek PDF

By Werner Peek

Das Epigramm ist wie Tragödie und Komödie, Lyrik und Chorpoesie eine Urschöpfung
des griechischen Genius. Und wird guy bei jenen Dichtungsarten gern
anerkennen, daß sie unabhängig auch bei anderen Völkern entstanden und zu hoher
Blüte gelangt sind, so steht beim Epigramm wohl fest, daß genau Entsprechendes
anderen Ortes nicht hervorgebracht worden ist. Alle modernen Epigramme jedenfalls
sind in Anlehnung an griechische, mf;!ist durch die Römer vermittelte Vorbilder
geformt worden, bei uns seit Opitz, Logau, Lessing und Goethe, mögen
sie nun die griechische Bezeichnung übernehmen, oder als "Sinngedichte" vor
den Leser treten. Es muß somit wohl eine gerade den Griechen eigentümliche Anlage
im Spiel gewesen sein, daß die Musen ihren Lieblingskindern dies. Geschenk
vor allen anderen vorbehalten haben. Und es stellt sich damit von selbst die Frage,
was denn nun eigentlich das besondere Wesen des griechischen Epigramms ausmache,
welche Momente bei seiner Entstehung wirksam gewesen sein möchten,
wie es zu Blüte und Reife gediehen sei.
