AbstractThis posting for 2019.01.24 is Part Three of a long-term project that started with Part One at 2019.01.08 and continued with Part Two at 2019.01.16. The numbering of my paragraphs here in Part Three continues from where I left off at the concluding paragraph §52 of Part Two, which had continued from where I had left off at the concluding paragraph §33 of Part One. In Part Three, as in Parts Two and One, I analyze examples of ancient texts composed by male authors who playfully imitate Sappho by appropriating aspects of her songs in their own literary creations. The primary examples in Part Three here come from the poetry of Catullus.
