About the Author

James Uden is Assistant Professor of Classical Studies at Boston University.


"J. Uden has written a very important, readable and intelligent new book. Unlike many other books on Juvenal, J. Uden does not place the poet in a generic sequence of verse satire. That field has been well ploughed, and it is not perhaps how writers actually work... This is a significant work and anybody who reads it will, like me, be challenged and inspired to read more." -- John Godwin, Le Fascicule 76/4 "...[a] brilliant and original new look at the Satires. ...the willingness to take interpretive risks, among other factors, makes Uden's book one of the more important to have been published on Juvenal in the past two decades." --Arion " interesting and valuable book.... This is a thought-provoking book which will find appreciative readers not just with specialists in Juvenal but also amongst scholars of Greek and Latin literature of the early second century." --Bryn Mawr Classical Review "James Uden's impressive new study of Juvenal's Satires opens up our understanding not only of the poetry itself but also of the world in which it was written.... Uden's sensitive, contextualized reading of the poems not only generates specific new insights but makes sense of Juvenal's whole satirical project...." --Greece & Rome "Uden's wide-ranging study situates Juvenal's satires squarely in the context of a multicultural second-century world, in which firm boundaries between identities were hard to uphold, and he watches the ironies of Juvenal's xenophobia unfold." -- The Times Literary Supplement "Uden has rejuvenated both Roman satire and Second Sophistic studies." -- The Journal of Roman Studies
