Martial’s epigram book is both an object that goes out into the world and a focal point about which a heterogeneous collec- tion of readers and readings assembles itself as a virtual society, its consumption very much part of what it is. Finally, we may speak of the world of the book as th. . Finally, we may speak of the world of the book as the attitude it takes, the focus, selection or frame that disposes us to see things from a certain angle, and here too, Martial’s books have something unique to ofer. Since the epigram is the most closed.

In this age of the sound bite, what sort of author could be more relevant than a master of the epigram? Martial, the most influential epigrammatist of classical antiquity, was just such a virtuoso of the form, but despite his pertinence to today's culture, his work has been largely neglected in contemporary scholarship

Martial: The World of the Epigram.

Martial: The World of the Epigram. How can one discover a world within a series of self-contained short poems? In answering this question, classicist William Fitzgerald draws the reader's attention to the ways in which the verses of Martial deftly navigated through the quotidian life of ancient Roman society. Pairing the original Latin with a readable idiomatic English translation, Fitzgerald asks that we consider Martial's epigrams as relevant not only to his own time but also to our sound-bite culture.

In this age of the sound bite, what sort of author could be more relevant than a master of the epigram? Martial, the most influential epigrammatist of classical antiquity, was just such a virtuoso of the form, but despite his pertinence to today’s culture, his work has been largely neglected in contemporary scholarship. Arguing that Martial is a major author who deserves more sustained attention, William Fitzgerald provides an insightful tour of his works, shedding new and much-needed light on the Roman poet’s world—and how it might speak to our own.Writing in the late first century CE—when the epigram was firmly embedded in the social life of the Roman elite—Martial published his poems in a series of books that were widely read and enjoyed. Exploring what it means to read such a collection of epigrams, Fitzgerald examines the paradoxical relationship between the self-enclosed epigram and the book of poems that is more than the sum of its parts. And he goes on to show how Martial, by imagining these books being displayed in shops and shipped across the empire to admiring readers, prophetically behaved like a modern author. Chock-full of epigrams itself—in both Latin and English versions—Fitzgerald’s study will delight classicists, literary scholars, and anyone who appreciates an ingenious witticism.
