Description - Latin Verse Satire by Paul Allen Miller

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.
