`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.
