BLA new translation combining textual accuracy with colourful poetry

Juvenal, whose work dates from the early second century AD, is commonly considered the greatest of Roman satirical poets. His sixteen satires are all concerned with contemporary Roman society. They are notable for their bitter, ironical humour, power of invective, grim epigrams, sympathy with the poor, and a narrow pessimism. Juvenal's influence was great among English satirists, notably Samuel Johnson.

In this new translation of the Satires, Professor Rudd combines textual accuracy with colourful poetry. His verse vividly conveys Juvenal's gift for evoking a wealth of imagery with a few economical phrases.

The introduction and notes provided by Dr Barr outline the background to the Satires and explain contemporary allusions. This translation should therefore be fully accessible to the modern reader.

Review:

`I wholeheartedly welcome the publication of this book. It will be immensely helpful to those of us who have to teach Roman satire in translation and the general reader will find it a reliable and readable version of an author who still has much to say to us.'Raymond Astbury, University College, Dublin

`The translation itself goes a long way towards catching J.'s mixture of rhetoric and wit. It is lively and taut ... translation is excellent, not only the best available in English but also good to read, no bad thing as most of its readers will be Latinless.' F. Jones, University of Liverpool, The Classical Review, Vol. XLII, 1992

Book Description:

This volume presents a new commentary on the first book of satires of the Roman satirist Juvenal. Susanna Morton Braund situates Juvenal within the genre of satire and demonstrates his originality in creating an angry character who declaims in the 'grand style'. The essays on each poem present the first integrated reading of these Satires as an organic structure.
