Anotace

The Greek satirist Lucian is a key figure in later Greek literature, and was immensely influential on later European literature (Shakespeare used him as a source for Timon of Athens); he invented comic dialogue as a satiric tool. This new translation is both accurate and idiomatic, and as entertaining as the original. The introduction stresses Lucian's importance in his own and later times, making his writing of interest to students across a wide range of disciplines, not to mention TV sit-com scriptwriters. The range of characters in Lucian's satires, from philosophers to courtesans, make them especially accessible to non-specialists. Includes Lucian's most famous piece, A True History, a parody of popular travellers' tales that includes a trip to the moon, an interstellar war, and a whale so big that it contains populated land inside it. 'you'll find another man to harvest, Glycerion: let this one go' The Greek satirist Lucian was a brilliantly entertaining writer who invented the comic dialogue as a vehicle for satiric comment. His influence was immense, not only in the Greek world, but on later European writers such as Rabelais and Swift. His dialogues puncture the pretensions of pompous philosophers and describe the daily lives of Greek courtesans; they are peopled by politicians, historians and ordinary citizens, as well as by gods and mythic figures. This selection provides a cross-section of Lucian's styles and satirical targets, from serious polemic to lighter squibs and character portrayals. It includes How to Write History and his most famous piece, A True History, a fabulous tale of space travel and a monstrous whale which prefigures the fantasies of Jules Verne. This lively new translation is both accurate and idiomatic, and the introduction highlights Lucian's importance in his own and later times.
