The Satires of Horace (65–8 BC), written in the troubled decade ending with the establishment of Augustus’ regime, provide an amusing treatment of men’s perennial enslavement to money, power, glory and sex. Epistles I, addressed to the poet’s friends, deals with the problem of achieving contentment amid the complexities of urban life, while Epistles II and the Ars Poetica discuss Latin poetry – its history and social functions, and the craft required for its success. Both works have had a powerful influence on later Western literature, inspiring poets from Ben Jonson and Alexander Pope to W. H. Auden and Robert Frost. The Satires of Persius (AD 34–62) are highly idiosyncratic, containing a courageous attack on the poetry and morals of his wealthy contemporaries – even the ruling emperor, Nero.

This book, written by a team of experts from many countries, provides a comprehensive account of the ways in which translation has brought the major literature of the world into English-speaking culture. Part I discusses theoretical issues and gives an overview of the history of translation into English. Part II, the bulk of the work, arranged by language of origin, offers critical discussions, with bibliographies, of the translation history of specific texts (e.g. the Koran, the Kalevala), authors (e.g. Lucretius, Dostoevsky), genres (e.g. Chinese poetry, twentieth-century Italian prose) and national literatures (e.g. Hungarian, Afrikaans).

Juvenal, whose work dates from the early second century A.D., is commonly considered to be the greatest Roman satirical poet. Addressing Roman society, his sixteen satires are notable for their bitter, ironic humor; power of invective, grim epigrams; sympathy with the poor; and narrow pessimism. Juvenal greatly influenced later satirists, most notably, Samuel Johnson. This new translation of the Satires vividly conveys Juvenal's gift for evoking a wealth of imagery with a few, economical phrases. With an introduction and notes outlining background information and explaining contemporary allusions, this new translation is fully accessible to the modern reader.

John Dryden (1631-1700)

His Politics, His Plays, and His Poets

This volume, a celebration of the tercentenary of Dryden's death, examines the impact of his work through a range of essays by leading Dryden scholars. These essays pay special attention to two aspects of his work that have received less attention than they deserve: the politics of his plays, and Dryden's position as a poet poised between ancient and modern influences. The essays therefore fall into two groups. Part I, The Court, the Town, and the Playhouse, features essays that reconsider Dryden's interaction with the London of his day, and how that interaction shapes his work - particularly his drama. Part II, Dryden and the Poets, examines Dryden's place in the literary tradition, setting him alongside those poets who influenced him, those he influenced, and contemporary poetic rivals. Together, the essays form a new appreciation of the extraordinary ambition and impact of this most dynamic dramatist and poet.

Juvenal: Satire 6

Juvenal's sixth Satire is a masterpiece of comic hyperbole, an outrageous rant against women and marriage which, in its breadth and density, represents the high point of the misogynistic literature of classical antiquity. The Introduction situates Juvenal within the wider tradition of Roman satire, interrogates afresh the poem's architecture and recurrent themes, shows how Juvenal systematically attributes to his monstrous women the inverse of the Roman wife's canonical virtues, traces the various literary currents which infuse the Satire, and lastly addresses the much-discussed issue of the poetic voice or persona from a sociohistorical as well as a theoretical perspective. Above all, the commentary strives to locate Juvenal in his historical, literary and cultural context, while simultaneously affording assistance with the nuts and bolts of the Latin, and always keeping in view two key questions: what was Juvenal's purpose in writing the Satire? How seriously was it meant to be taken?
