Beyond Anger is a detailed literary analysis of the three poems which make up Juvenal's third book of Satires (i.e. Satires 7, 8 and 9). Dr Braund pays particular attention to the satiric techniques Juvenal employs in this book, arguing that in Book III Juvenal uses a new, ironic persona, which makes his satire more indirect, subtle and double-edged than does the angry approach found in the earlier books. This is the first in-depth treatment of Juvenal's third book of Satires, which has previously suffered neglect from scholars. It also gives a welcome overview of the development of Juvenal's satiric output.

Industry Reviews
