GALVEZ GARDUNO, Rafael. La poesía de Parménides: el arte del estilo ambiguo y desafiante, insinuador y sutil. Nova tellus [online]. 2008, vol.26, n.1, pp.55-90. ISSN 0185-3058.
This paper analyzes the proem of Parmenides' poem to the scope of showing how it is skillfully constructed both at the level of the artistic finish and as regards the communicative frame, which is designed to pose a challenge to the intelligence of the hearer. Actually, the receiver is exposed to a bundle of stimuli quite often contradictory, ranging from expressive ambiguity to subtle insinuation, with effects that are indeed devised to strike very sensitive chords in his/her mind. On these assumptions, it is then argued that the contrast between the fascinating story narrated in the allegorical proem and the really philosophical section of Parmenides' poem may depend on their gestation at two different stages in this philosopher's life. It is on the first of them that the influence of the Homeric epos is inescapable.
