This ‘sampling’ covers some of the usual suspects, epigrams, verse tags, scurrilous and otherwise, but it also includes a number of poems from the Liber Spectaculorum, the Book of Spectacles, devoted to poems on the Games at the Colosseum and, often, in praise of Caesar. Martial’s themes can make the modern reader very uncomfortable, as well as make them laugh, even 2,000 years after his death.
