Quintilian and Juvenal’s Fourteenth Satire

Working Papers on Nervan, Trajanic and Hadrianic Literature 1.14

‘Quintilian and Juvenal’s Fourteenth Satire’                                                                                            James Uden, 16th October 2013

This paper is new work, inspired by the interest of the research group in interactions between late first/early second-century literary figures. Its aim is to suggest a reading of Satire 14 in light of the second-century reception of Quintilian – a figure whose influence on Trajanic and Hadrianic literature, as Chris Whitton’s working paper also shows, has been generally underestimated. This really is work in progress, so any criticisms or suggestions are very welcome!
