104 Indeed, he claims not to “share the opinion that poets take special delight in falsehoods. ”106 The concept on which this paradox hinges is the notion of the verisimilar. Aristotle had argued that the difference between a historian and a poet is not that one writes verse and the other prose. On the contrary, the real difference is this, that one tells what happened and the other what might happen. For this reason poetry is something more scientific and serious than history, because poetry tends to give general truths while history gives particular facts.

The claim that human truth is like a painting therefore seems to have two aspects, both of them paradoxical: human truth is like a painting because, compared with divine truth, painting is necessarily false; human truth is made in such a way that, like an ideal painting, it is simultaneously physically false and metaphysically true. 33 On e Vico The First Fable Vico’s analogy between the role of fantasia in making paintings and its role in making myths was not entirely novel.
82 These poetic characters were “the essence of the fables,”83 but they were 34 not necessarily verbal in origin, as Vico explains using his characteristic etymological method: “Logic” comes from logos, whose fit and proper meaning was fabula, fable, carried over into Italian as favella, speech. In Greek the fable was also called mythos, myth, whence comes the Latin, mute. . 84 This account effectively aligns the first language with the practice of painting, frequently referred to in the seventeenth century as a muta eloquentia or muta poesis.
