Chattering Courtesans: And Other Sardonic Sketches

Lucian

Edition:1st

Publisher:Penguin Books

Described by a later Greek historian as 'a man seriously committed to raising a laugh', Lucian exulted in the exposure of absurdity and the puncturing of pretension, and was capable of finding a comic angle on almost any subject. In this selection we see him conversing with his literary enemies, railing against hypocrisy and the vanity of human wealth and power, and taking a wry look at the power of lust and the unsatisfactory nature of deviant sexual practices.
