Didymus wrote:Lycophron, Alexandra. Why? Well, try reading it.
Is that a fair mention? It's designed
to be obtuse.
Pindar has a terrible reputation, but after some reading his language becomes easier, if not always his obscurity of sense.
In general I have a harder time with the Alexandrian poets, too. The Aoidoi workup of Theocritus 13 cured me of any desire to read more of him any time soon.
