This volume is a short Latin commentary with an emphasis on linguistic interpretation. In the case of Persius, a notoriously difficult author, Latin--with all its means of precise semantic definition and paraphrase--is an efficient instrument. The collection of opinions about Persius and Roman satire--dating from the fourteenth to the twentieth century--presented by this volume not only closes a gap in Persius studies but is also of paradigmatic importance as far as the analysis of obscuritas in European culture and the modern age is concerned.
