The Dedalus Book of Roman Decadence: Emperors of Debauchery

The Dedalus Book of Roman Decadence: Emperors of Debauchery (Decadence from Dedalus) - Geoffrey Farrington, Marcus Valerius Martialis, Josephus, Juvenal, Apulieus, Aelius Lampridius, Philemon Holland, Steve Gove, Brian Murdoch, Adrian Murdoch, Ovid, Suetonius, Tacitus, Seneca, Petronius While I have loved most of the selections that Farrington chose in other books, I wasn't crazy about these translations, primarily old public domain (the word quoth appears) or adapted by Brian & Adrian Murdoch. There is a good sampling here, I like the selections but would advise anyone interested to purchase copies of the always reliable Penguin Classics especially the captivating translation of the The Twelve Caesars by Robert Graves though I think I do prefer The Satyriconin Oxford Classics by P.G. Walsh.
