Juvenal and the Satiric Emotions

Catherine Keane

  • The first monograph in a half-century to examine all sixteen of Juvenal's "Satires" individually and as a series
  • Traces a self-conscious satiric career through a reconsideration of Juvenal's rhetorical personae and the spectrum of emotions they represent
  • Studies the "Satires" alongside a wide range of contemporary and earlier ancient literary texts, including rhetorical theory, philosophy, and declamation
