Satyrica by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

73 editions published between 1965 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether read as the first European novel, a parody of classical romance, a sophisticated example of pagan pornography or a gay classic, Petronius' picaresque account of the Priapic adventures of Encolpius and his beautiful lover, Giton, takes us deep into the underworld of the Roman empire. Told in the first-person by Encolpius, the Satyrica offers a brilliant comic exploration of an ancient empire in decline and of the energies released by its decay. Since it was first translated into English by William Burnaby in 1694, the Satyrica has never ceased to delight and scandalize

Petronius, Satyrica, 1-15 : Texte, Übersetzung, Kommentar by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 77 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
