Mayor's Juvenal (two volume slipcased set)

J. E. B. Mayor

Liverpool University Press

This final edition of Mayor's Juvenal, issued here in two hardback volumes (available separately or as a slip-cased set), should be an essential part of all professional Latinists' reference libraries. Mayor's commentary is comprehensive on details of life and thought in imperial Rome and on Latin diction. His long introduction, or 'advertisement' sets an explosively volatile tone and his whole work reflects his passionate desire to save the modern world through classical wisdom.
