His observations on those Satyrica passages where Homer's Odyssey shines through deserve particular mention.' -Journal of Roman StudiesEdward Courtney presents an overall interpretation of Petronius' Satyrica, beginning with basic background information, then surveying each episode in order that leading themes emerge. Finally he gives an overview of Petronius' use of literary allusion and symbolism, and of his treatment of sex. All Latin and Greek has been translated in a way which is sympathetic to the original.

Verse with Prose distinguishes for the first time some of the most significant uses of mixed forms. Dronke looks at the way prose and verse elements function in satirical works, beginning in the third century B.C. with Menippus. He examines allegorical techniques in the mixed form, giving especially rewarding attention to Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy. His lucid analysis encompasses a feast of medieval sagas and romances, ranging from Iceland to Italy, including vernacular works by Marguerite Porete in France and Mechthild in Germany. A number of the medieval Latin texts presented have remained virtually unknown, but emerge here as narratives with unusual and at times brilliant literary qualities.

With one exception, the essays which form this book have appeared in various Classical periodicals. They do not claim to present a com prehensive account of Petronius and his work, but are intended to illustrate by discussion some aspects of the work and its author that seem, to me at least, to be of interest. "Did Tacitus quote Petronius" appeared in L' A ntiquiM Classique XXXVII, 2, 1968, 641-643; "On Tacitus' Biography of Petronius" and "Petronius, Priapus and Priapeum LXVIII" in Classica et Mediae valia XXVI 1-2, 1965, 233-245, and XXVII 1-2, 1966, 225-242 respectively; "Some Comments on Petronius' Portrayal of Character" will appear soon in Eranos; "Eating People is Right" appeared in Hermes 97 Bd., 3, 1969,381-384; "Some Themes of Concealment and Pretence in Petronius' Satyricon" in Latomus Tome XXVIII, I, 1969, 99-119; and" Petronius, A Portrait of the Artist" in Symbolae Osloenses XLV, 1970, U8-I28. I wish to thank the editors of these periodicals for their permission to reproduce the articles. Professor J.P. Sullivan was kind enough to let me see the proofs of his book: The Satyricon of Petronius, A Literary Study (London, 1968) before it was published. I acknowledge this with thanks. I wish to acknowledge permission from The Bodley Head to quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald's Tender is the Night, Bodley Head Scott Fitzgerald, VoL II p. 9I. I wish to thank Mrs. A.

The ancient novel, previously relegated to the margins of literary study, has recently taken its place at centre stage. Petronius' Satyricon, the oldest surviving work of prose fiction, is in many respects an arrestingly modern ancient novel but the inclusion within it of thirty short poems and two long ones introduces an alien feature in need of investigation. In this study, Catherine Connors draws on developments in Latin literary criticism to take a comprehensive approach to the Satyricon's poems, reminiscences of poetic texts, and the figure of the poet, assessing the ways in which they fragment and refashion established literary forms into a new amalgam of prose fiction. This book will be of interest to students of Latin literature, Neronian culture, and the early history of the novel. All Latin and Greek is translated.

Petronius' Satyricon, long regarded as the first 'novel' of the Western tradition, has always sparked controversy. It has been puzzled over as a strikingly modernist riddle, elevated as a work of exemplary comic realism, condemned as obscene and repackaged as a morality tale. This reading of the surviving portions of the work shows how the Satyricon fuses the anarchic and the classic, the comic and the disturbing, and presents readers with a labyrinth of narratorial viewpoints. Dr Rimell argues that the surviving fragments are connected by an imagery of disintegration, focused on the pervasive Neronian metaphor of the literary text as a human or animal body. Throughout, she discusses the limits of dominant twentieth-century views of the Satyricon as bawdy pantomime, and challenges prevailing restrictions of Petronian corporeality to material or non-metaphorical realms. This 'novel' emerges as both very Roman and very satirical in its 'intestinal' view of reality.

Perhaps the strangest - and most strikingly modern - work to survive from the ancient world, The Satyricon relates the hilarious mock epic adventures of the impotent Encolpius, and his struggle to regain virility. Here Petronius brilliantly brings to life the courtesans, legacy-hunters, pompous professors and dissolute priestesses of the age - and, above all, Trimalchio, the archetypal self-made millionaire whose pretentious vulgarity on an insanely grand scale makes him one of the great comic characters in literature. Seneca's The Apocolocyntosis, a malicious skit on 'the deification of Claudius the Clod', was designed by the author to ingratiate himself with Nero, who was Claudius' successor. Together, the two provide a powerful insight into a darkly fascinating period of Roman history.
