This classic edition, reissued here, was based on lectures delivered by John Connington during his tenure of the chair of Latin at Oxford in the middle years of the 19th century. The introduction and the translation retain the wit and freshness of original delivery. Edited after his death by H. Nettleship, the book has been accepted as the definitive work on Persius, even as much work has since been done on the satirist and new editions and translations have appeared. This reissue, which includes the Latin text, facing translation and commentary, allows students of ancient satire to use a truly classic edition.
