Comments¶ Juvenal's famous and influential satires, as translated by Robert Stapleton, with useful annotations and a brief biography of the Roman poet. Juvenal’s satires had enormous influence on 18th century English literature, most notably the tenth satire which Johnson imitated in his Vanity of Human Wishes. Prior to this edition, the satires had only been partially translated into English.
