MARTIAL: Understanding Classics
Martial, (38-104 CE) is celebrated for his droll, often salacious portrayal of Roman society. The authors provide an overview of the chief themes of his sardonic writings. They show that he is of continuing interest because of his rediscovery during the Renaissance, when writers viewed him as an incisive commentator on failings similar to those of their own day.
