En Luciano de Samósta brillan el estilo ligero, el ingenio fértil y l. a. enorme versatilidad. Es el autor griego del siglo II más influyente en los angeles literatura europea.
Luciano (Samósata, a orillas del Éufrates, h. 120-h.180 d.C.) es el escritor griego del siglo II más influyente en l. a. literatura europea: fue muy leído en el Renacimiento, es el creador del diálogo satírico y ha inspirado a autores de l. a. talla de Erasmo y Quevedo, quick y Voltaire. Poco sabemos a ciencia cierta de su vida, pues los angeles mayoría de los datos biográficos son de fuentes ficcionales y es difícil determinar su veracidad. Estas noticias nos dicen que fue escultor y abogado en Antioquía, para después viajar por toda los angeles cuenca mediterránea como sofista, dando conferencias sobre temas diversos, en tiempo de Marco Aurelio. Siempre según fuentes dudosas, residió unos años en Roma, y más de veinte en Atenas, donde habría escrito los angeles mayor parte de sus obras, que habría leído en varias ciudades griegas. Ya period viejo cuando fue designado para un shipment en l. a. cancillería del prefecto en los angeles administración romana de Egipto.
Su habilidad literaria, su humor, el estilo claro y su afán crítico y satírico, su ingenio y fantasía, lo destacan entre sus contemporáneos, en l. a. brillante época denominada Segunda Sofística. Luciano lleva a l. a. perfección los angeles agudeza aticista y el talento satírico en l. a. recreación del legado clásico, que revitaliza a fuerza de mordacidad e ironía. Tampoco los contemporáneos estuvieron a salvo de su vitriolo: lo prueban filósofos, retóricos, profetas y doctores del siglo II. Luciano no se tomó demasiado en serio el pensamiento y menos l. a. filosofía; se dedicó a componer discursos y tratados de gran ingenio, a veces desternillantes, que pretendían entretener y divertir más que analizar y profundizar. Luciano bebe de varias fuentes: los angeles retórica sofística (con su habilidad para los angeles anécdota y el argumento), el diálogo platónico (en los angeles forma), los angeles Comedia Antigua (por los angeles fantasía), l. a. sátira menipea y los angeles diatriba cínica. No fue ni filósofo ni un sofista típico; se dedicó a escribir y pronunciar sus conferencias con gran independencia, en su vena de escepticismo radical y con un espíritu antidogmático que desenmascara lo que considera sistemas de pensamiento fraudulentos de charlatanes y embaucadores, además de ser azote de vicios y corruptelas. Se hizo famoso en su tiempo y tuvo amistades influyentes; las obras que pronunció debieron de round pronto en forma de libro.
Los escritos de Luciano son numerosos y muy varios. Incluyen ejercicios de retórica (Elogio de l. a. mosca), el escrito autobiográfico El sueño o el gallo, el Tratado sobre cómo escribir los angeles historia, numerosos escritos más o menos filosóficos (La pantomima, El pecador), diálogos satíricos y morales (Diálogos de los dioses, Diálogos de los muertos, Diálogos de las cortesanas, Caronte el cínico, Prometeo, l. a. asamblea de los dioses), diálogos literarios (El parásito), libelos (El maestro de retórica), novelas satíricas (Historia verdadera, El asno) y parodias de tragedia (El pie ligero, l. a. tragedia de los angeles gota). Aquí aparecen recogidos en cuatro volúmenes, según los angeles ordenación tradicional.
