Lucian lived in the second century AD and though his mother tongue was probably Aramaic he was famous for his witty satire and polished Greek. The aim of this selection is to produce a representative coverage of some of Lucian's best work, particularly those pieces not available in editions or recent translations. Five of the nine works offered are examples of the comic, satiric dialogue as that was Lucian's forte, but also included to illustrate the author's versatility are an autobiography, a satirical discourse, a description of a painting and a major work of literary criticism.
