Martial's Epigrams: A Selection
This product is shipped via the most economical route and is estimated to be delivered within 2-3 weeks of placing your order.
One of literature’s greatest satirists, Martial earned his livelihood by excoriating the follies and vices of Roman society and its emperors, and set a pattern that satirists have admired across the ages. For the first time, readers can enjoy an English translation of these rhymes that does not sacrifice the cleverly constructed effects of Martial’s short and shapely thrusts. Martial’s Epigrams “bespeaks a great scholar at play” (The New York Times Book Review), makes for addictive reading, and is a perfect, if naughty, gift.
