Satires of Rome: Threatening Poses from Lucilius to Juvenal

Cambridge University Press, 25. 10. 2001 - 289 strán (strany)
This survey of Roman satire locates its most salient possibilities and effects at the center of Roman cultural and political self-understanding. This book describes the genre's numerous shifts in focus and tone over several centuries (from Lucilius to Juvenal) not as mere "generic adjustments" that reflect the personal preferences of its authors, but as separate chapters in a special, generically encoded story of Rome's lost, and much lionized, Republican identity.
