Juvenal has been described as the tabloid of his day and whilst I see the point that is being made, it is a most unfair comparison. He reminded me somewhat of a grumpy old man railing against the corruption, injustice and decadence of the Rome of the time, yet the early satires were apparently written when he was still quite young.
I would not try this without first having read Seutonius or some other such history, because you really do need a basic understanding of the background from which the writes comes, but if you do have a passing knowledge of ancient Rome, you will find some of the observations genuinely funny and satirical.
It's not the most obvious book for a casual reader to pick up, but once into the mindset, I found myself laughing out loud at some of the observations.
Juvenal rails against sodomites, corruption, gluttons, pretentious ignoramuses, mobs and masses, bullies etc and anyone and anything that in his opinion is contributing to the decline of Rome and the folly of society.
i was going to quote some pieces to give a flavour but I got lazy. Juvenal is not going to be to every one's taste (though, I found him less blue than Martial) but he can be very very funny as well as philosophical and I will recommend this especially if you know quite some Roman history beforehand.
