“I live in a little cell, with a window that won’t even close,

In which Boreas himself would not want to live.”

– Martial, Epigrams

 

Martial was a 1st-century Roman poet from Spain most-known for his ‘Epigrams.’ This important, early piece of Roman literature expresses details of life in Rome focusing in on the brutal daily life during the Roman Empire. Martial describes living conditions of Rome, corrupt physicians and senators, cruel treatment of slaves, and secrets and rumors of emperors. Because of the style of Martial’s writing, he is often considered the first insult comic, as he used humor to disguise his disdain for the life with which he was so familiar.

 

This rare 1693 edition was edited by Joseph de Jouvency, published in Paris by Simon Benard.
