Abstract: 
After acknowledging Salomon Gessner’s important rôle within the culture of his time, this
article explores the author’s use of the motif of the jug in his literary works. Through a textual
analysis of the idyll The Broken Jug (1756) and a comparison with the idylls Daphne. Chloe and
Mycon (1772) the article retraces the classical provenance of the theme (in Theocritus and
Vergil), as well as its presence in the Bible and in more recent sources. In so doing, it establishes
a symbolic connection between the jug and the idea of the fragility of human existence.
