Sátiras (Biblioteca Clásica Gredos) (Spanish Edition) - download pdf or read online

By Juvenal,Persio,Manuel Balasch,Miquel Dolç,José Javier Iso,José Luis Moralejo

La sátira es según Quintiliano una creación enteramente romana, y Juvenal, con Horacio, su mejor exponente.
Décimo Junio Juvenal, a pesar de ser uno de los mayores poetas satíricos romanos, es un desconocido para nosotros: apenas sabemos de seguro que nació en Aquino (Lacio) en época de Nerón (54-68 d.C.) y que murió durante el imperio de Adriano (117-138); probablemente participó en el ejército y en l. a. vida política, residió en Roma en tiempo del emperador Domiciano y tal vez sufriera exilio. Sus Sátiras, dieciséis repartidas en cinco libros, son el modelo common del género, que Juvenal deseó situar a l. a. altura de las poesías épica y trágica y de los angeles oratoria. Se refieren a l. a. vida en l. a. Roma contemporánea al autor, y tratan con una acidez despiadada y vitriólica a una variopinta galería de personajes: son víctimas de sus pullas los moralistas hipócritas, el estilo de vida en l. a. urbe –en l. a. sátira three, que muchos consideran los angeles mejor–, el gobierno de Domiciano, las mujeres –en los angeles misógina sátira 6–, los literatos y los maestros, los que creen en los angeles nobleza del linaje y los que sucumben a los vicios sexuales... Pocos son, en suma, los que se salvan de los angeles quema. De Juvenal se ha apreciado, amén de los angeles singular fuerza expresiva, los angeles sinceridad de su cólera y un inagotable ingenio que ha legado al acervo literario expresiones tan universales como panem et circenses, rara avis in terris y mens sana in corpore sano.
Este volumen completa l. a. imagen de los angeles sátira romana con Persio (34-62 d.C.), quien en su breve vida compuso seis sátiras a los angeles manera de Lucilio y Horacio, que, lejos de l. a. cólera de Juvenal, transmiten una rigurosa moralidad estoica.
