The Satyricon is the most celebrated work of fiction to have survived from the ancient world. The father of the picaresque genre, it recounts the sleazy progress of a pair of literate scholars as they wander through the cities of the southern Mediterranean encountering en route type-figures the author wickedly satirizes. This lively translation captures the gaiety of the original, and is supplemented by extensive notes.
