Tom Geue is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow and Lecturer in Latin at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, and has published widely on the literature of imperial Rome. He is currently researching a book on anonymous Roman writing, which also considers how readers now and then cope with the power and problem of anonymity.
'This book is a tour de force of superb writing and meticulous scholarship. It is rare to find a book about Juvenal which is almost as lively as the old satirist himself, but Geue certainly comes closer than the rest of us manage. His thesis is simple and maintained throughout this long but hugely readable book … The style of this book is eminently readable and entertaining. … Throughout the book Geue pays great attention to making his own text readable and jargon-free, and he maintains an air of excitement and passion for the text under scrutiny which is as infectious as it is impressive. There is not a dull sentence anywhere, and all students of this wonderful poet will find this book invigorating and enlightening.' Classics For All
