The Satyricon is one of the most outrageous and strikingly modern works to have survived from the ancient world. Most likely written by an advisor of Nero, it recounts the adventures of Encolpius and his companions as they travel around Italy, encountering courtesans, priestesses, con men, brothel-keepers, pompous professors ­and, above all, Trimalchio, the nouveau riche millionaire whose debauched feasting and pretentious vulgarity make him one of the great comic characters in literature

Hailed by the Washington Post Book World as "a modern classic," Robertson Davies’s acclaimed Deptford Trilogy is a glittering, fantastical, cunningly contrived series of novels, around which a mysterious death is woven. The Manticore-the second book in the series after Fifth Business-follows David Staunton, a man pleased with his success but haunted by his relationship with his larger-than-life father.

The translator capitalised "god" and used "God Almighty" in the translation. Such wording makes this translation out of place. Should bought another translation.

so difficult to understand!

I bought this to research ancient references to werewolves, since this was written in 63 AD, it was a good start. There is only a couple of sentences about the werewolf, most of the book revolves around the escapades of a Roman and his slave boy as they wander in and out of brothels, are invited to grotesque feasts and set sail on a ship for seas unknown. An interesting look at what it was like to be young and horny in ancient Rome.

There are entertaining exchanges and adventures among the characters in this fiction, presumably based on real life rogues in the time of Nero. The footnotes are very good to make the best of the references to gods and others, although it is a pain to go back and forth from the text to the back pages. It brings to life the follies of ancient Rome, many of which ring true today. There are many gaps in the text (lost in time), so this is not a page-turner. The cover, by the way, is the ancient equivalent in mosaic of "Beware the Dog!"
