A Commentary on the Satyrica of Petronius


This commentary is a long awaited desideratum, which has gone through many previous incarnations and several scholarly collaborations. The project has finally been brought to fruition by Gareth Schmeling with some initial help from Aldo Setaioli. Schmeling now offers the first complete English commentary on the Satyrica (so far there have only been partial commentaries on the Cena Trimalchionis and some of the poems, and several modern German commentaries on sections of the novel). This is a substantial handbook to the novel, which readers will consult for many years to come for its erudite scholarship.
