Overview

Beyond Anger: A Study of Juvenal's Third Book of Satires by Susan H. Braund

Beyond Anger is the first detailed literary analysis of Juvenal's third book of Satires (Satires 7, 8, and 9). Braund focuses on the satiric techniques Juvenal employs in this book, arguing that in Book III Juvenal uses a new, ironic persona which makes his satire more indirect, subtle, and double-edged than does the angry approach found in the earlier works.
