The Satyricon by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

713 editions published between 1499 and 2017 in 21 languages and held by 4,858 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satyricon is the most celebrated work of fiction to have survived from the ancient world. It can be described as the first realistic novel, the father of the picaresque genre. It recounts the sleazy progress of a pair of literate scholars as they wander through the cites of the southern Mediterranean, encountering en route type-figures whom the author wishes to satirize - a teacher in higher education, a libidinous priest, a vulgar freedman turned millionaire, a manic poet, a superstitious sea-captain, a femme fatale. The novel has fascinated the literary world of Europe ever since, evoking praise for its elegant and hilarious description of the underside of Roman society, but also condemnation for some of its lubricous subjects; most recently it formed the subject of Fellini's controversial film

Petronius by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

184 editions published between 1913 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Petronius (C. or T. Petronius Arbiter), who is reasonably identified with the author of this famous satyric and satiric novel, was a man of pleasure and of good literary taste who flourished in the times of Claudius (41-54 CE) and Nero (54-68). As Tacitus describes him, he used to sleep by day, and attend to official duties or to his amusements by night. At one time he was governor of the province of Bithynia in Asia Minor and was also a consul, showing himself a man of vigour when this was required. Later he lapsed into indulgence (or assumed the mask of vice) and became a close friend of Nero. Accused by jealous Tigellinus of disloyalty and condemned, with self-opened veins he conversed lightly with friends, dined, drowsed, sent to Nero a survey of Nero's sexual deeds, and so died, 66 CE. The surviving parts of Petronius's romance Satyricon mix philosophy and real life, prose and verse, in a tale of the disreputable adventures of Encolpius and two companions, Ascyltus and Giton. In the course of their wanderings they attend a showy and wildly extravagant dinner given by a rich freedman, Trimalchio, whose guests talk about themselves and life in general. Other incidents are a shipwreck and somewhat lurid proceedings in South Italy. The work is written partly in pure Latin, but sometimes purposely in a more vulgar style. It parodies and otherwise attacks bad taste in literature, pedantry and hollow society. Apocolocyntosis, "Pumpkinification" (instead of deification), is probably by Seneca the wealthy philosopher and courtier (ca. 4 BCE-65 CE). It is a medley of prose and verse and a political satire on the Emperor Claudius written soon after he died in 54 CE and was deified
Petronius, Satyrica, 1-15 : Texte, Übersetzung, Kommentar by Petronius Arbiter( )

10 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkable variety and irony of Petronius' Satyrica today amaze scholars and readers alike. However, a complete commentary on this important example of the ancient novel is still lacking. With this volume Natalie Breitenstein presents the first comprehensive commentary on the opening of the Satyrica (chapters 1-15). Modern research is included in her analysis of all aspects of the textual criticism, language, style, and content of the text. The introduction also offers an up-to-date summary of the state of research on all main problems and questions relating to Petronius' Satyrica and the fragmentary nature of the text."--Publisher's website

52 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A classic of comedy, a superbly funny picture of Nero's Rome as seen through the eyes of Petronius, its most amorous and elegant courtier. This translation recaptures all the ribald humor of Petronius' picaresque satire. The hilarious story of the pleasure-seeking, fortune-hunting adventures of an educated rogue, it turns every weakness of the flesh, every foible of the mind to laughter." [Back cover]
