Petronius’ Satyricon and Seneca’s Apocolocyntosis, edited and translated by Gareth Schmeling
Dear friends, colleagues, readers of Ancient Narrative-Alert,
I hope that my warm greetings and brief message from cold Scotland find all of you well and safe. Although the AN-Alert circulation list does not normally advertise new books on the ancient novel, I am most grateful to Roelf Barkhuis for allowing me to share with you from this forum my excitement when I received through Amazon post this morning a copy of Petronius’ Satyricon and Seneca’s Apocolocyntosis, edited and translated by Gareth Schmeling for the Loeb Classical Library series (Cambridge, Mass. and London, December 2020) (https://www.hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?isbn=9780674997370). I am thrilled to have this volume, I look forward to reading it, and I wish to express my heartfelt gratitude to dear Gareth for decades of inspiring work on dear Petronius. Subscribers to this list may already know about this new book; I feel sure they would like to join me in congratulating Gareth on its publication.
With my best wishes, Costas
