Der römische Dichter Juvenal (ca. 60-140 n. Chr.) prangert in seinen Satiren gesellschaftliche Missstände und individuelles Fehlverhalten an. Die Stadt Rom präsentiert er als gefährlichen Moloch, in dem Machtmissbrauch, Schmeicheleien und Betrug ebenso an der Tagesordnung sind wie Prunk- und Verschwendungssucht oder auch Verstöße gegen die sexuelle Norm. Die zornige Haltung des satirischen Sprechers sorgt für eine mitreißende Darstellung. Häufige Gedankensprünge, die rasche Abfolge beispielhafter Szenen und Bezüge auf aktuelle Ereignisse führen allerdings dazu, dass etliche Stellen in den Satiren nicht unmittelbar verständlich sind. Uns heutige Leser irritieren zudem die Fremdenfeindlichkeit, Angriffe gegen Frauen und die Bloßstellung sexueller Minderheiten. Die vorliegende Ausgabe ermöglicht Vertretern der Klassischen Philologie sowie deren Nachbardisziplinen einen Zugang zu Juvenals Satiren. Die Übersetzung ist dem heute üblichen Sprachgebrauch verpflichtet, ohne sich zu weit vom lateinischen Original zu entfernen. Erklärungen zu Realien und sprachlichen Problemen sowie Ansätze zur Interpretation werden in umfangreichen Anmerkungen geboten. Ein ausführliches Nachwort informiert über den aktuellen Forschungsstand zu Juvenals Leben und Werk.

Juvenal and the Satiric Emotions

In his sixteen verse Satires, Juvenal explores the emotional provocations and pleasures associated with social criticism and mockery. He makes use of traditional generic elements such as the first-person speaker, moral diatribe, narrative, and literary allusion to create this new satiric preoccupation and theme. Juvenal defines the satirist figure as an emotional agent who dramatizes his own response to human vices and faults, and he in turn aims to engage other people's feelings. Over the course of his career, he adopts a series of rhetorical personae that represent a spectrum of satiric emotions, encouraging his audience to ponder satire's proper emotional mode and function. Juvenal first offers his signature indignatio with its associated pleasures and discomforts, then tries on subtler personae that suggest dry detachment, callous amusement, anxiety, and other affective states. As Keane shows, the satiric emotions are not only found in the author's rhetorical performances, but they are also a major part of the human farrago that the Satires purport to treat. Juvenal's poems explore the dynamic operation of emotions in society, drawing on diverse ancient literary, rhetorical, and philosophical sources. Each poem uniquely engages with different texts and ideas to reveal the unsettling powers of its emotional mode. Keane also analyzes the "emotional plot" of each book of Satires and the structural logic of the entire series with its wide range of subjects and settings. From his famous angry tirades to his more puzzling later meditations, Juvenal demonstrates an enduring interest in the relationship between feelings and moral judgment.

Juvenal’s Global Awareness

Circulation, Connectivity, and Empire

In Juvenal’s Global Awareness Osman Umurhan applies theories of globalization to an investigation of Juvenal’s articulation and understanding of empire, imperialism and identity. Umurhan explains how the increased interconnectivity between different localities, ethnic and political, shapes Juvenal’s view of Rome as in constant flux and motion. Theoretical and sociological notions of deterritorialization, time-space compression and the rhizome inform the satirist’s language of mobility and his construction of space and place within second century Rome and its empire. The circulation of people, goods and ideas generated by processes of globalization facilitates Juvenal’s negotiation of threats and changes to Roman institutions that include a wide array of topics, from representatios of the army and food to discussions of cannibalism and language. Umurhan’s analysis stresses that Juvenalian satire itself is a rhizome in both function and form. This study is designed for audiences interested in Juvenal, empire and globalization under Rome.

Karl Kraus, Apocalyptic Satirist

Culture and Catastrophe in Habsburg Vienna

This is a fascinating study of the life and work of Karl Kraus, brilliant Austrian writer, satirist and personality of fin de siecle Vienna. This encyclopaedic study of his life, his work and his generation will be of great interest to both the enthusiast and the general student of European culture. Drawing on unfamiliar sources, Edward Timms analyses Kraus's involvement in the fundamental ideological issues of his time, and shows that Kraus's political position - caught between traditional Habsburg loyalties and new democratic commitments - was far more complex than has previously been suspected. 'A major landmark in Kraus studies, and an important contribution to our understanding of the culture of the early twentieth century. It abounds in discoveries and insights.' Times Higher Education Supplement 'Timm's lucid prose, his masterly organization of the voluminous material he treats, his excellent translations of the documents he cites and his broad, readable portrayal of Viennese fin-de-siecle culture makes this study accessible to the average reader and a pleasure for the literary professional ... An example of German studies at its best.' European Studies Journal 'This study, which takes us to the end of the Great War, is unquestionably the most detailed and thoughtful book about him in amy language. Edward Timms' account skilfully interweaves his life, times and work.' The Listener 'Timms successfully weaves a colourful, and thoroughly researched and documented account of essential cultural currents in Habsburg Vienna around his central figure. Copious illustrations and photographs enhance a most enjoyable text, making this an ideal introduction to Kraus and his work.' Choice Edward Timms is lecturer in German at the University of Cambridge and a fellow of Gonville and Caius College.
