The poems of Horace's second book of Satires, for the most part written in the newly-adopted dialogue form, display great literary and intellectual sophistication, artistic skill and charm. The intention of this edition is to supply sufficient background information to enable the text to be read with understanding. The emphasis is on the social context, the history of satire in Rome, and the ethical-philosophical content.
