Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Translation captures very well the tone and spirit of the original text. Does better than previous editions in dealing with the original text's disputed passages."—William T. Wehrle, College of William and Mary

"Marvelous! Excellent selection, useful and to-the-point notes....The scholarship is excellent, and the series format is very clean, clear, and easy to follow."—Michael W. Thomey, Ithica College

"The translations seem both accurate and very accessible to undergraduate students. The notes are particularly good and to the point, telling the sorts of things students ask. This text would be particularly good in a Roman Civilization course, because of Juvenal's social criticism."—Gloria S. Merker, Rutgers Univ.
