Martial s Epigrams Book Two Book Description:

This edition provides an English translation of and detailed commentary on the second book of epigrams published by the Latin poet Marcus Valerius Martialis. The past ten years have seen a resurgence of interest in Martial's writings. But contemporary readers are in particular need of assistance when approaching these epigrams, and until now there has been no modern commentary dedicated to Book II. This new commentary carefully illuminates the allusions to people, places, things, and cultural practices of late first-century Rome that pervade Martial's poetry. It analyzes the epigrammatist's poems as literary creations, treating such topics as the structure of the individual poems and of the book as a whole, and the influence of earlier texts on Martial's language and themes.

Epigrams Book Description:

"This new commentary illuminates the allusions to people, places, things, and cultural practices of late first-century Rome that pervade Martial's poetry. It analyzes the epigrammatist's poems as literary creations, treating such topics as the structure of the individual poems and of the book as a whole, and the influence of earlier texts on Martial's language and themes. This edition thus fills an important gap and will be of interest to readers of both Martial and ancient epigram, from advanced undergraduates to scholars."--BOOK JACKET.

Epigrams V Book Description:

The Roman poet Martial concentrated on the genre of epigram, which he brought to such perfection that he provided the model for subsequent epigrammatists. He is best known for his pungently witty poems, which gave the word 'epigram' its modern definition, but his range is much wider than this: he has an acute perception of human nature, and gives a fascinating insight into the Rome of the late first century A.D. His fifth book, which contains eighty-four poems, is dedicated to the emperor Domitian, and for that reason it avoids the obscenity of the other books. Nevertheless it includes a rich variety of subject matter and treatment.
