By Juvenal,Lindsay Watson,Patricia Watson

The creation situates Juvenal in the wider culture of Roman satire, interrogates afresh the poem's structure and recurrent issues, exhibits how Juvenal systematically attributes to his gigantic ladies the inverse of the Roman wife's canonical virtues, lines many of the literary currents which infuse the Satire, and finally addresses the much-discussed factor of the poetic voice or personality from a sociohistorical in addition to a theoretical point of view. certainly, the remark strives to find Juvenal in his ancient, literary and cultural context, whereas at the same time affording assistance with the nuts and bolts of the Latin, and consistently conserving in view key questions: what used to be Juvenal's goal in writing the Satire? How heavily used to be it intended to be taken?
