  On the contrary, it is clear that any patronage of the arts which is connected with the motivations and the inter-ests of political power tends to encourage a production that is mainly conformist and celebratory, and as a result, it may even act as an obstacle to the creation of worksof high quality; and modern readers have often been rather severe in their judgment of that part of the poetic production of the Augustan age which is most closely linkedto the ideology of the regime. In his gesture of breaking with the canon of great national literature, Catullus had opened the way to the ambition of future poets to provide Rome with a new canonof works, which would combine the new requirements of neoterism on the levels of research into subjectivity, and stylistic elegance, with the breadth and the depth of aliterature that intended to represent the cultural patrimony of a nation (Citroni 2006:211–34).
