about

Beyond Anger is the first detailed literary analysis of Juvenal's third book of Satires (Satires 7, 8, and 9). Braund focuses on the satiric techniques Juvenal employs in this book, arguing that in Book III Juvenal uses a new, ironic persona which makes his satire more indirect, subtle, and double-edged than does the angry approach found in the earlier works.

Editorial Reviews

"It is to the credit of Braund that she has assimilated the scattered works and different methods of scholars since Highet and pulled their ideas together, with both originality and rigor....This is a basic work for all students of Juvenal." William S. Anderson, Phoenix
