Lucian of Samosata was a rhetorician and satirist who wrote in the Greek language. He is noted for his witty and scoffing nature. Although he wrote solely in Greek, he was ethnically Assyrian. Living... More > at the height of the Roman Empire, the audience Lucian wrote for was hardly shocked by these short dialogues of the Greek hetaerae. However, two millenia of ensuing prudery made it impossible to acknowledge this part of the Lucian corpus, a set of humorous vignettes set in the context of the 'oldest profession,' let alone translate it into a vernacular language. These comedic sketches are timeless: working girls competing for clients, dishing gossip and candid tips of the trade, men trying to keep their girls' attention with expensive gifts. It also portrays the dark side of the hetaera's life: out-of-control parties, blowhard men, and putting up with rough treatment by clients.< Less

More > l'existence des personnages, fait nouveau dans la littérature qui s'invente à cette époque. Ce texte est précieux pour la connaissance de la vie quotidienne dans les sociétés antiques, mais aussi pour ses qualités littéraires toujours sensibles au lecteur d'aujourd'hui. Les pièces du recueil d'Hérodas n'ont pas de visée moralisatrice, mais participent d'une esthétique de l'instantané qui vise à restituer la réalité du monde. L'appât du gain, les intérêts égoïstes, les pratiques érotiques ou la violence y sont évoqués pour le pur plaisir de la représentation, et parfois pour provoquer le rire, mais jamais dans l'intention de les dénoncer à un public qui n'en attendait que des satisfactions d'ordre esthétique. Traduction intégrale sur le texte établi par I. C. Cunningham, Harvard University Press, 2002.< Less
