Popular verses. Audit of Hermogenes’ art,
Legal issues, Invention, Style, Method.
These are queries and audits of what Hermogenes
promises to say, but then either says or does not say,
for which some pig-minded folks accuse Tzetzes,
saying that Hemogenes wrote everything well
and taught well everything he promised,
and that Tzetzes did not grasp it, as if I were they
and they, by contrast, were Tzetzes; but they were the opposite.
Now please, look everyone, who is like a pig of Circe,
is it Tzetzes or the buffaloes of the pigheaded race?
Let me then start now from the Issues.
