Roman Verse Satire: Lucilius to Juvenal : a Selection with an Introduction, Text, Translations, and Notes
-- Latin text with facing English translation
-- Notes keyed to English translations
-- Index of names
Satura quidem tota nostra est (Satire is altogether ours) was the claim of the Roman Quintilian, the first century C.E. commentator on rhetorical and literary matters, for the literary world had not previously seen the likes of satire.
This edition provides introduction to Roman verse satire for the English reader and aid to the Latin student in understanding these challenging, sometimes obscure texts. Lucilius, Horace, Persius, and Juvenal are equally represented, in an attempt to redress a tendency in other anthologies to favor Horace and Juvenal.
