Some brief overview of this book

Perhaps the strangest - and most strikingly modern - work to survive from the ancient world, The Satyricon relates the hilarious mock epic adventures of the impotent Encolpius, and his struggle to regain virility. Here Petronius brilliantly brings to life the courtesans, legacy-hunters, pompous professors and dissolute priestesses of the age - and, above all, Trimalchio, the archetypal self-made millionaire whose pretentious vulgarity on an insanely grand scale makes him one of the great comic characters in literature. Senecas The Apocolocyntosis, a malicious skit on the deification of Claudius the Clod, was designed by the author to ingratiate himself with Nero, who was Claudius successor. Together, the two provide a powerful insight into a darkly fascinating period of Roman history.
