This book is an investigation of several key questions relevant to Juvenal's Fifth Satire: What is the character of the speaker? What is the nature of the addressee(s)? How should we understand the relationship between patron and client? Furthermore, if we compare Juvenal to Horace's Satires and Epistles, what are the similarities and differences between Juvenal's world and the egalitarianism of patronage within the circle around Augustus and Maecenas? What do those texts reveal about Juvenal's attitude to the emperor; and is it possible to extend Juvenal's jaundiced view of the rex to the princeps?
