Sample text

D. COUSINS relationship to Roe, which to a degree resembles Jonson’s carefully nuanced relationship with his patron: That thou at once, then, nobly mayst defend With thine own course the judgement of thy friend, Be always to thy gathered self the same, And study conscience more than thou wouldst fame. Though both be good, the latter yet is worst, And ever is ill-got without the first. (lines –) In those lines Jonson warns Roe that his maintaining of constancy will be challenged by the allure of ‘fame’.

Considered separately, but especially when considered together, the Lipsian and Senecan formulations of constancy illuminate Jonson’s evoking that notion and thence his feigning both a commonwealth of worthies and a commonwealth of true readers (which is to say, of understanders).  Seneca’s and Lipsius’ writings on constancy offered Jonson usefully broad, connected fields of reference when in his Epigrams he chose to ascribe constancy of virtue to a patron or friend (or maybe an addressee who was both).

Epigram  starts with Jonson praising Pembroke at an epideictic level not so far short of that he assigns to King James – a level of praise he denies to Roe. In fact it starts with his troping Pembroke’s name virtually as the epigram of epigrams: I do but name thee, Pembroke, and I find It is an epigram on all Mankind, Against the bad, but of and to the good; Both which are asked, to have thee understood.  Moreover Pembroke’s name and therefore he himself require to be truly read: by understanders.
