Latin Verse Satire

by

Latin Verse Satire Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Paul Allen Miller presents a wide variety of texts by the Latin satirists, featuring selections from Ennius, Lucilius, Horace, Persius, and Juvenal in the original latin. The commentary focuses on the linguistic difficulties and problems of usage, then relates the individual selection to the author's larger oeuvre and its historical context, and finally concerns itself with those aspects of meter and style necessary for an appreciation of the poetry. Lastly, the volume closes with a selection of essays and critical excerpts that both elucidate the genre's most salient features, and help the student understand the history of its modern scholarly reception.

Synopsis:

A wide variety of texts by the Latin satirists are presented here in a fully loaded resource to provide an innovative reading of satire's relation to Roman ideology.

Brimming with notes, commentaries, essays and texts in translation, this book succeeds in its mission to help the student understand the history of Latin's modern scholarly reception.

Focusing on the linguistic difficulties and problems of usage, and examining aspects of meter and style necessary for poetry appreciation, the commentary places each selection in its own historical context then using essays and critical excerpt, the genre's most salient features are elucidated to provide a further understanding of its place in history.

Extremely student friendly, this stands well both as a companion to Latin Erotic Elegy and in its own right as an invaluable fund of knowledge for any Latin literature scholar.
