Example text

Many have criticized Plutarch for the crudity of the analysis, especially Frost 1964, at 386–92, Breebart 1971, at 267–9, Andrewes 1978, at 1–5: they generally explain this as a consequence either of Plutarch’s sourcematerial (cf. g. Ath. Pol. 2) or of the influence of conditions of his own day. (On this second possibility cf. ) Both considerations may indeed have played a part. But we also need to explain why this analysis, when compared with Plutarch’s other Lives of the period, is both unusually insistent and unusually crude.

Plutarch wants to develop, precisely, the contrast between the two sides, the side where Pericles naturally belonged and the side where he unnaturally found himself: the basically sound conservatives and the basically unsound demos and demagogues. The temptation to present the contrast in as sharp and polarized a manner as possible was hard to resist;41 and in 7–14 we duly see the polarity at its starkest, for that is where Pericles finds himself with the demagogues, where he does not belong. 43 That harmonious combination seems all the more striking for the lack of qualification with which the polarity had earlier been presented.
