The objective of this thesis is to offer a comprehensive analysis of the role of metapoetic water symbolism in Propertius. The pervasiveness of water imagery in all four books of the corpus, and the poet’s artistic indebtedness to Callimachus, for whom water is a significant programmatic metaphor, suggest that such an analysis may provide a useful interpretational tool for this most difficult and enigmatic of poets.
