Editorial Reviews

Review

[Ruden] has caught, better than any translator known to me, both the conversational patterns of Petronian dialogue and the camera-sharp specificity and color of the Satyricon's descriptive passages. . . . A quite extraordinary achievement against heavy odds. --Peter Green, The Los Angeles Times Book Review



Relying on. . . her excellent knowledge of Latin, her lively feel for contemporary slang and rhythm, and her infectious love of the work, [Ruden] gives us the full Satyricon; she shows us a man making a comic masterpiece out of Neronian chaos. . . . Her book as a whole, breathing knowledge and affection, is a delight. --Donald Lyons, The New Criterion



This is a really useful volume which can readily be recommended as a set text to students. The ten commentaries at the end are judicious overviews of important topics connected with the work and the suggestions for further reading are up-to-date and intelligent. --Susanna Morton Braund, Yale University

I really loved this book, but unless you have someone that can translate some of the names for you and are familiar with the epics and roman/greek myths, much of the humor may be lost on you. I wish the end wasn't fragmentary; I would have liked to read more.

This was a text for my Roman Culture class.
I loved it.
The dinner party was something else.
It also told of some of the ways things were done back then, but everything Trimalchio did was over the top.
A great read for the history buff or Roman lover.
It is also just great if you want an interesting read!
