μυθολόγων ποιητῶν . μυθολόγων is said so as to include writers of μῦθοι in prose: cf. 394 B and II 365 E note

ὥσπερ οὖν κτλ. Plato means that poor speakers cannot grapple with an abstract notion, but use a part of it, i.e. a concrete example. οὐ κατὰ ὅλον κτλ. may be illustrated from Symp. 205 B, C.
