SUMMARY: Horace’s Ars poetica was the only ancient poetics available to medieval interpreters and grammar teachers before Aristotle’s Poetics was translated into Latin (late 13th c.). Two scholia collections and ten full commentaries from the 11th and 12th centuries demonstrate the medieval focus on mimesis in a general poetics, on tone, authorial intent, genre requirements, and on stylistic variation of heroic, satirical, lyrical, and dramatic poetry, exemplified from Roman literature. Particularly character delineation is carefully handled and coordinated with stylistic considerations of dialogue, narrative order and plot - providing the new, medieval Poetriae by Matthew of Vendoˆme, John of Garland and Geoffrey of Vinsauf with both theoretical insights and practical advice.
