This introduction to three of Juvenal's satires aims to
help intermediate high school or college readers understand the meaning
of Juvenal's Latin. Satire I is Juvenal's explanation of why he writes
poetry and satire. Satire III discusses why life in Rome has become
intolerable. Satire X concerns itself with explaining why most prayers
are misguided and, if answered, harmful.
