Example text

10, when he justifies the criticism of Lucilius by pointing out that one can find lapses in even the greatest poets (he lists Homer, the Roman tragedian Accius, and Ennius at lines 51–55), so that criticism (or, since this is satire, ridicule) of great figures need not necessarily imply animosity. Horace says at 48–49 that he can write better satire than Varro of Atax (P. Terentius Varro “Atacinus,” a Roman poet who composed in various genres, including satire, 82–30s BCE; only fragments survive) but he concedes that he would still always be inferior to Lucilius, the “inventor” of Roman satire (inuentore minor); and he can still say, apparently without irony, that Lucilius remains at the top of the heap (“I wouldn’t dare snatch the crown that sits with great praise on his head,” 48–49).

The section that immediately follows, lines 7–19, muddles things even further. 4 – one should keep things short (breuitas, 9), varied, and measured – but ends with a famous, if somewhat confusing, statement (14–17): ridiculum acri fortius et melius magnas plerumque secat res. illi, scripta quibus comoedia prisca uiris est, hoc stabant, hoc sunt imitandi. 32 Persius and Juvenal: Texts and Contexts Humor generally cuts through great matters better and more forcefully than sharpness. Those men who wrote Old Comedy relied on this principle, and in this regard they should be imitated.

All the subsequent Roman satirists imagined, in any case, that Lucilius had far more freedom to say what he wanted than they ever would, and as a result came to idealize Roman satire according to a calculus of Lucilian libertas. Lucilius was a prolific poet but he only survives for us in fragments, and even though there are plenty of these (almost 1,400) most consist of no more than a few lines, a phrase, or a word. Still, enough remains to form a reasonably clear impression of the character of his satire, and so to understand how he became the literary lodestone that he did for later Roman satirists.
