"This is the best introduction to this subject this reviewer has encountered … It is stimulating, original, and highly informative, and it takes account of all relevant scholarship … Summing Up: Essential. All readers; all levels." (Choice)
"What sets this introductory book apart from others of its kind is its dedication to tackling the perpetually vexing question of satire as a genre - the question that vexed the satirists themselves." (Bryn Mawr Classical Review)
"A volume to which one would direct bright students in search of stimulation and intellectual challenge." (Scholia Reviews)"You can trust Hooley to convey to students and teachers in both classics and literature classes the best of current thinking on the genre and mode of satire."
—John Henderson, University of Cambridge
"This is no run-of-the-mill introduction to Roman satire. The book does its solid introductory work, certainly, but at the same time, it manages to be quite brilliant and chock-full of smart new observations."
—Kirk Freudenburg, University of Illinois
