Their misjudgment anticipates that his book will be a grotesque, monstrous in its extravagance, bitterness, and violence. In fact, they expect his book to contain poems that will characterize it predominantly in terms Feigning the commonwealth: Jonson’s Epigrams of confrontational subgenres of the epigram. They expect, then, epigrams containing foulness ( foetidas – ‘licentious’ poems) and bitterness (poems ‘full of gall’ – fel ). Their malicious pre-judgment – their prejudice – transforms his work into a caricature generated by their misreading of title and author: by misunderstanding born of opinion (opinio).
D. With regard to the civil aspect of that ideal as described in De Constantia, perhaps two things should be mentioned before I turn to consider Lipsius’ thinking on constancy and how it – in combination with Seneca’s – illuminates Jonson’s evoking the notion. A couple of Seneca’s remarks on the social implications of the wise man’s life might have been especially interesting to his Jacobean readers and not least to Jonson. Focused respectively on peace and on greed, those remarks could have been seen as having an immediate relevance severally to King James and to the economic changes occurring in his reign.
The opening line alludes to discovery (via ‘find’). Jonson indicates that his understanding of Pembroke’s name is at once unique and spontaneous – natural discovery (‘I do but name thee, Pembroke, and I find’). But his hyperbole itself inescapably and immediately implies that his ‘find[ing]’ is the opposite – rhetorical invention, the judged production of material and meaning. Jonson moderates the excess of his praise at the moment of articulating it. As elsewhere in his non-dramatic A. D. What makes Pembroke’s name the supreme epigram, according to Jonson, is the singularity of its owner’s being at once senior man of state and stoic sage: But thou, whose noblesse keeps one stature still, And one true posture, though besieged with ill Of what ambition, faction, pride can raise, Whose life even they that envy it must praise, Thou art so reverenced, as thy coming in But in the view doth interrupt their sin: Thou must draw more; and they that hope to see The commonwealth still safe must study thee.
