Item description for Mayor's Juvenal: Volumes 1 and 2 (Set) (Bristol Phoenix Press - Classic Editions) by J.E.B. Mayor...
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.
Henderson's introduction, geared to the needs of serious user and occasional browser alike, guides the reader in the use of Mayor's commentary and explains its gestation and the mode of thinking it sought to incarnate. A substantial bibliography on both Mayor and Juvenal is also included.
