      Martial is best known for his twelve books of epigrams, published in Rome between AD 86 and , during the reigns of the emperors Domitian, Nerva and Trajan. In these short, witty, often scathing and sometimes deliciously raunchy poems, Martial lampooned "civilization" and the boorish/scandalous activities of his contemporaries. Sixty poems of Martial, in translation by Martial The epigrams included in the selection are organised under various heads, e.g. Martial and poetry, sexual mores, satirical pieces. A very full introduction deals with such topics as the prejudices and predilections of his audience which conditioned Martial's choice of subject matter, Martial.

Written with satiric wit and a talent for the memorable phrase, the poems in this collection record the broad spectacle of shows in the new arena.

In this poem we once again see Martial’s self-confidence in his own work. Throughout the twelve books of the epigrams are poems on the theme of Martial’s own books, and this is a short and sweet example of this.

Laudat, amat, cantat nostros mea Roma libellos, Meque sinus omnes, me manus omnis habet. 2 Small river in Gallia Togata, where Martial was residing. 3 One of the sun's horses. 4 An untranslateable pun on the word Argonauts, which Martial fancifully compounds of the Greek words ἀργός, "slow," and ναύτης, "a sailor".

Receive the terrible breastplate of the warlike Minerva, which even the anger of the snaky-locked Medusa dreads. When you do not wear it, Caesar, it may be called a breast-plate; when it sits upon your sacred breast, it will be an aegis.

1 1 The aegis was borne by the gods; the lorica, or breastplate, was worn by men. Written to celebrate the 80 CE opening of the Roman Colosseum, Martial's first book of poems, "On the Spectacles," tells of the shows in the new arena.

The great Latin epigrammist's twelve subsequent books capture the spirit of Roman life in vivid detail. Fortune hunters and busybodies, orators and lawyers, schoolmasters and acrobats, doctors and plagiarists, beautiful slaves and generous.

The first translation to bring out the literariness of Martial, to show how his books and poems interconnect.

The selection illustrates the range and diversity of Martial's style and topics. Includes facing Latin text. The Introduction considers Martial's life and times, his importance for the genre, and the thematic structure of the original.

This is my translation of Martial's lovely, touching elegy: To you, my departed parents, with much emotion, I commend my little darling, my much-kissed Erotion who died six days short of her sixth bitter winter. Protect her, I pray, from hell’s nightmare shades a-flitter; and please don’t let fiends leave her maiden heart dismayed.

Martial’s first book, On the Spectacles (ad 80), contained 33 undistinguished epigrams celebrating the shows held in the Colosseum, an amphitheatre in the city begun by Vespasian and completed by Titus in 79; these poems are scarcely improved by their gross adulation of the latter emperor.

by Dudley Fitts). At the time Martial wrote, the concept of what is now called “formal poetry” didn’t exist, because to write poetry was by definition to write in form. Martial’s poems are brilliant little commentaries on human nature, but they are also exquisitely crafted aesthetic objects that use metre and word placement to sharpen their effects.

Zottoli, “Cursus Litteraturae Sinicae.” Chinese text with Latin translation. Vol. V deals with poetry. None of the poems is earlier than T’ang.

The Latin is seldom intelligible without reference to the Chinese. Translators have obviously used Zottoli as a text. Out of eighteen Sung poems in Giles’s book, sixteen will be found in.
