Homère « maître de rhétorique » ou Homère « leading sophiste », tel est le paradoxe d'une réception vintage qui fait de l'aède de Chios le maître d'un idéal oratoire. Ce quantity décline les différentes modalités selon lesquelles l'autorité d'Homère s'exerce ou se voit discutée, dans l. a. formation rhétorique des élites d'abord, puis dans le discours des sophistes et des orateurs. Dans les multiples occasions de verbal exchange auxquelles l'homme éloquent sait répondre - discours public, dinner party, discussion familier, cour impériale -, le Poète est souvent invité. Parler d'Homère, c'est se révéler homme de tradition, mais c'est aussi cimenter cette tradition, en empruntant, par les exemples et les citations homériques, un langage partagé par les Grecs, depuis l'Athènes classique jusqu'à l'époque byzantine.

Sample text

This constitutes an exercise of the argument from êthos simultaneous with attack on his opponent. As Antisthenes had done in his Odysseus speech, Alcidamas here imports contemporary sophistic terminology (φιλόσοφος) into a mythological and epic setting, no doubt as a means of “showing off” his cleverness —in short, as epideixis. The great irony, of course, is that Odysseus is himself the φιλόσοφός τε καὶ δεινός in Homeric tradition 15. Odysseus spends the bulk of the speech (sections 12-28) attacking Palamedes’ character.

In Lysias 1 (On the Murder of Eratosthenes), for example, the defendant argues that if the jury does not acquit him of the murder of the adulterer Eratosthenes, “you will be giving adulterers such immunity that you will encourage burglars to call themselves adulterers too” (36). In the absence of concrete evidence of Palamedes’ guilt, Alcidamas’ Odysseus uses fear and manipulation to turn the judges against his rival. It is a speech that illustrates the dubious power of sophistic argumentation —perhaps meant to confirm Alcidamas’ own critique of sophistry.

Si les liens de la Vie d’Homère pseudépigraphe et de la sophistique sont moins faciles à établir, parce que le rédacteur respecte la fiction auctoriale en ne citant aucun auteur ancien, l’analyse du texte laisse penser que le matériau traditionnel de la biographie du poète a fait l’objet d’une réécriture dépendante d’un modèle culturel, celui du sophiste, tel que la société impériale pouvait se le représenter, ce qui témoigne de l’impact que la vision d’un Homère « père des sophistes » a pu avoir dans la société impériale.
