The Satyricon by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

665 editions published between 1499 and 2020 in 18 languages and held by 4,221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Satyricon is the most celebrated work of fiction to have survived from the ancient world. It can be described as the first realistic novel, the father of the picaresque genre. It recounts the sleazy progress of a pair of literate scholars as they wander through the cites of the southern Mediterranean, encountering en route type-figures whom the author wishes to satirize - a teacher in higher education, a libidinous priest, a vulgar freedman turned millionaire, a manic poet, a superstitious sea-captain, a femme fatale. The novel has fascinated the literary world of Europe ever since, evoking praise for its elegant and hilarious description of the underside of Roman society, but also condemnation for some of its lubricous subjects; most recently it formed the subject of Fellini's controversial film
The Satiricon by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

446 editions published between 1610 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Latin work of fiction believed to have been written by Gaius Petronius, though the manuscript tradition identifies the author as Titus Petronius. The Satyricon is an example of Menippean satire, which is different from the formal verse satire of Juvenal or Horace. The work contains a mixture of prose and verse (commonly known as prosimetrum); serious and comic elements; and erotic and decadent passages. As with the Metamorphoses (also called The Golden Ass) of Apuleius, classical scholars often describe it as a "Roman novel", without necessarily implying continuity with the modern literary form. The work is narrated by its central figure, Encolpius, a retired, famous gladiator of the area. The surviving sections of the novel begin with Encolpius traveling with a companion and former lover named Ascyltos, who has joined Encolpius on numerous escapades. Encolpius' slave, Giton, is at his owner's lodging when the story begins

The Satyricon of Petronius Arbiter by Petronius Arbiter( Book )

60 editions published between 1900 and 2012 in English and held by 1,242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is work of fiction by the Latin author Petronius written about the middle of the first century A.D. The identity of Petronius is uncertain. He may well have been Gaius Petronius Arbiter, a courtier and companion in debauchery of the Emperor Nero, who fell out of his master's favor and committed suicide in A.D. 65. The Satyricon is a somewhat scandalous work of fiction of which only fragments (Bks. 14, 15, and 16 from its at least twenty books) are still in existence and it presents a bawdy picture of life in Rome at the time of the Emperor Nero
Petronius, Satyrica, 1-15 : Texte, Übersetzung, Kommentar by Petronius Arbiter( )

9 editions published in 2009 in German and held by 1,108 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
