Parody and pastiche are among the main literary and satirical strategies used by Lucian of Samosata. The aim of this article is to explore the relationship between the reuse of the tradition of Greek paideia and the new perspectives of literature through the analysis of a serie of examples (cat., hist. conscr., VH, Peregr., Alex.). On the one hand, there is the recognition of the greatness of the ancient authors and certainly there is also the literary pleasure of pepaideumenos. At the same time, in contrast to what happens for mimesis in the Second Sophistic, Lucian’s parody and satirical pastiches look in other directions, because parody, by its nature and through the 'necessary gap', always implies a principle of subversion of the tradition: in Lucian's Works the satiric rule of «believing in nothing» produces its effects in the development of Literature.
