Lucian lived in the second century AD and though his mother tongue was probably Aramaic he was famous for his witty satire and polished Greek. The aim of this selection is to produce a representative coverage of some of Lucians best work, particularly those pieces not available in recent editions or translations. Five of the nine works offered are examples of the comic, satiric dialogue as that was Lucians forte, but also included to illustrate the authors versatility are an autobiography, a satirical discourse, a description of a painting and a major work of literary criticism. Greek text with facing-page treanslation, introduction and commentary
