Example text

Mockery of such characters can come across as softer, less vitriolic than attacks on people with grave, unredeemable vices, its humor more accessible and less private. Horace essentially makes this point later in Sat. 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.

3 Conclusion: Lucilian libertas into the Empire By the end of Sat. 1, then, Horace has articulated with almost textbook clarity not only the poetic principles that “ought” to govern Roman satire, but also the anxieties that these principles invariably call forth in its practitioners. Time and again in this volume, we will see Persius and Juvenal thematizing a similar roster of issues, and crafting their response in accordance with the exigencies of their own historical moment – balancing, for example, the drive to censure with the aesthetics of poetic form, remaining aware that attacking people is always a risky business (and exaggerating the risk, even, as a literary Satire in the Republic 39 conceit), tempering a personal voice of beleaguerment and self-righteousness with enough comic irony to keep things always a little off-balance.

Contrast Juvenal’s struggle with the limits of his own libertas in Satire 1 (165–71); the verses begin here with an imagined interlocutor offering advice to Juvenal: “ense uelut stricto quotiens Lucilius ardens infremuit, rubet auditor cui frigida mens est criminibus, tacita sudant praecordia culpa. inde ira et lacrimae. ” experiar quid concedatur in illos quorum Flaminia tegitur cinis atque Latina. “as often as blazing Lucilius roars as if with drawn sword, the listener whose mind is cold with his crimes grows red, and his heart sweats with silent guilt.
