Product Overview

This final edition of Mayor's Juvenal, issued here in two hardback volumes (available separately or as a slipcased set), should be an essential part of all professional Latinists' reference libraries. Mayor's commentary is comprehensive on details of life and thought in imperial Rome and on Latin diction. His long introduction, or 'advertisement, ' sets an explosively volatile tone and his whole work reflects his passionate desire to save the modern world through classical wisdom. Volume I consists of Mayor's original introduction, John Henderson's new introduction and bibliography, the Latin text of Juvenal's Satires and Mayor's commentary on Satires I-VII. Volume II contains Mayor's commentary on Satires VIII-XVI. Henderson's introduction, geared to the needs of serious user and occasional browser alike, guides the reader in the use of Mayor's commentary and explains its gestation and the mode of thinking it sought to incarnate.
