Rare book from the Persius collection. Stoic Latin author and master of the language; who wrote superb and highly researched satires.
He is well above the political resentment or mockery of his predecessors as well as Juvénal’s rhetorical indignation.
According to Jean-Pierre Néraudau, his writing is “rushed, rough, and often obscure.”
