9780521803571: Satires of Rome: Threatening Poses from Lucilius to Juvenal

The first complete study of Roman verse satire to appear since 1976 provides a fresh and exciting survey of the field. Rather than describing satire's history as a series of discrete achievements, it relates those achievements to one another in such a way that, in the movement from Lucilius, to Horace, to Persius, to Juvenal, we are made to sense, and see performed, the increasing pressure of imperial oversight in ancient Rome.

Book Description:

The first complete study of Roman verse satire to appear since 1976, this book provides a fresh and exciting survey of the field, taking each of Rome's satirists individually, in their proper order. But rather than describing satire's history as a series of discrete achievements, it relates those achievements to one another in such a way that, in the movement from Lucilius, to Horace, to Persius, to Juvenal, we are made to sense, and see performed, the increasing pressure of imperial oversight in ancient Rome.
