Petronius: 'Satyrica 1-15' - Text, Übersetzung, Kommentar


The remarkable variety and irony of Petronius’ Satyrica today amaze scholars and readers alike. However, a complete commentary on this important example of the ancient novel is still lacking. With this volume Natalie Breitenstein presents the first comprehensive commentary on the opening of the Satyrica (chapters 1–15). Modern research is included in her analysis of all aspects of the textual criticism, language, style, and content of the text. The introduction also offers an up-to-date summary of the state of research on all main problems and questions relating to Petronius’ Satyrica and the fragmentary nature of the text.
