Abstract

The text analysis of Tib. 1,2,43-66 shows that in this passage Tibullus has doubts about the witch’s powers, however the poet doesn’t doubt about cantus (v.55), but about the witch’s claim to be able to free Tibullus from his love and about the sacrifice that she made and that Tibullus considers useless or even impious. The text analysis of Tib. 1,2,43-66 also shows that this passage has numerous similarities with Virgil and Propertius and that the poet after Tibullus who most frequently imitates this passage is Ovid. Besides Ovid, other poets who imitate this passage are Lucan, Silius Italicus and Statius. As regards style, if the first part, in particular the list of magic feats, offers typical features of the elevated poetry language, the second part contains typical features of the colloquial language, especially of the comedy language. Finally, both in the first and in the second part there are numerous anaphora, repetitions of words and sounds.
