Example text

Instead of searching for hidden structural principles of increasing subtlety the following converse postulate should rather be put forward: when the structure is not plainly in view and transparent (and there is no reason to assume inability on the poet's part), the absence of structure is intentional and at issue is exactly the function of this absence. Whether this principle is operative in Apollonius scholarship will be seen later on. At any rate, with Thierstein (1971) we are in deep waters: he attempts to clarify Apollonius' compositional technique and the arrangement of his material through the detailed articulation of individual "main blocks" (very different in length); yet the overall coherence of the epic is by no means established in this manner.
