Sixteen Satires Book Description:

Juvenal's Satires create a fascinating (and immediately familiar) world of whores, fortune-tellers, boozy politicians, slick lawyers, shameless sycophants, ageing flirts and downtrodden teachers Perhaps more than any other writer, Juvenal (c. 55-138 AD) captures the splendour, the squalor and the sheer vibrant energy of everyday Roman life. A member of the traditional land-owning class which was rapidly seeing power slip into the hands of dynamic outsiders, he offers equally savage portraits of decadent aristocrats; women interested only in 'rough trade' like actors and gladiators; and the jumped-up sons of panders and auctioneers. He constantly compares the corruption of his own generation with their stern upright forebears. And he makes us feel from within the deep humiliation of having to dance attendance on rich but odious patrons. Green's celebrated translation is fully annotated and clarifies all references and allusions in the text, making it equally suitable for students and for continuous reading. For this new edition it has been substantially revised throughout to give it an even more contemporary flavour.

The Sixteen Satires Book Description:

Perhaps more than any other writer, Juvenal (c. AD 55-138) captures the splendour, the squalor and the sheer energy of everyday Roman life. In The Sixteen Satires he evokes a fascinating world of whores, fortune-tellers, boozy politicians, slick lawyers, shameless sycophants, ageing flirts and downtrodden teachers. A member of the traditional land-owning class that was rapidly seeing power slip into the hands of outsiders, Juvenal also creates savage portraits of decadent aristocrats - male and female - seeking excitement among the lower orders of actors and gladiators, and of the jumped-up sons of newly-rich former slaves. Constantly comparing the corruption of his own generation with its stern and upright forebears, Juvenal's powers of irony and invective make his work a stunningly satirical and bitter denunciation of the degeneracy of Roman society

The Sixteen Satires Book Description:

The Satires of Juvenal capture the splendor, squalor, and sheer vibrant energy of everyday Roman life better than any other work. A member of the traditional landowning class that was rapidly seeing power slip into the hands of dynamic outsiders, Juvenal offers savage portraits of decadent aristocrats, women interested only in "rough trade" like actors and gladiators, and the pretentious sons of pimps and auctioneers. With an eye to the stern forebears of Rome's past, Juvenal puts into exquisite relief the degradation of his infamous times.For this third edition, Peter Green's celebrated translation has been substantially revised to bring it still closer to the tone and structure of Juvenal's Latin and to take into account important scholarship of the past quarter-century. The Introduction, Notes, and Bibliography have all been updated and expanded. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
