"A classic of comedy, a superbly funny picture of Nero's Rome as seen through the eyes of Petronius, its most amorous and elegant courtier. This translation recaptures all the ribald humor of Petronius' picaresque satire. The hilarious story of the pleasure-seeking, fortune-hunting adventures of an educated rogue, it turns every weakness of the flesh, every foible of the mind to laughter." [Back cover]

10 editions published in 2009 in German and Latin and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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."--Publisher's website
