Example text

Such a definition of poetic truth would not necessarily exclude that many of the events narrated might be believed to have some relationship to real past events. Both factual and nonfactual information could be preserved in the tradition, but the poet and his audience would never be interested in sorting out the one from the other, nor capable of it. Truth (aletheia) would be defined simply as “all that which is preserved in the tradition,” without discrimination of fact or fiction. All innovations, all departures from the tradition, would be lies.

If we were to say that the Homeric poet values this brand of truth as his primary aim, we might speak of a fictional variety of narration, because the narrative has no primary connection to real past events in the minds of either poet or audience. An interest in fact, in what actually happened, is subordinated to an interest in how the traditional story goes. ) Nonetheless, this kind of fictional narrative presumably could never be distinguished from a nonfictional one as lies from truth, because traditional fiction would be as “true” (alethes), as unforgotten, as traditional nonfiction.
