Visions of Lucian I: Lucian’s Dialogues of the Gods

In this singular and uproarious collection of comic dialogues, Lucian of Samosata, a satirist writing in the second century AD, eavesdrops on the gods themselves and presents us with a sensational peek behind the curtain of life on Mount Olympus. This new edition draws on historical sources to present the Dialogues in their entirety, and includes an introductory essay and extensive notes and appendices.
