By Martial

Martial, the daddy of the epigram, was once one of many great provincial poets who made their literary mark on first-century Rome. His Epigrams should be affectionate or merciless, elegiac or playful; they aim each section of Roman society, from slaves to schoolmasters to, notably, the aristocratic elite. With wit and knowledge, Martial inspires no longer “the grandeur that used to be Rome,” yet relatively the undying subject matters of city existence and society.
