Satires of Rome: Threatening Poses from Lucilius to Juvenal / Edition 1by Kirk Freudenburg
Pub. Date: 01/28/2011
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
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.
