Sample text

Mattern-Parkes, “Seneca’s Treatise ‘On Anger,’ ” explains that this is the ingrained attitude Seneca was trying to combat in On Anger; his advice, compared with Plutarch’s in On Controlling Anger, is quite dismissive of worldly expectations, as van Hoof shows (“Strategic Differences”). The ancient Greek context is similarly status conscious (see Konstan, “Aristotle on Anger,” and, for more extensive social contextualization, Kalimtzis, Taming Anger). ’ ” 15. Nussbaum imagines that for a Roman man anger would be “hooked up to a feeling of manly pride, and to a quasi-erotic excitement, as he prepares to smash the adversary” (Upheavals of Thought, 160).

Highet, who was Juvenal’s greatest champion in the age of burgeoning Latin literary scholarship, saw in the sequence of books a reflection of the poet’s aging process. 60 This is the kind of thinking that made Highet the persona school’s straw man. Yet in persona studies, too, the phases of Juvenal’s career are characterized according to the rhetorical and emotional tone that dominates the verse. Only the personal causes for change are removed from the picture. 61 This is not the usual objection made to the persona approach, which has certainly had its critics.

68 If the Juvenalian satiric persona, in its more appealing later incarnations, has successfully convinced some readers to see things his way, it is not so surprising. This master rhetorical performer’s goal would be to move and persuade his audience, using convincing fictions and an authoritative voice. Satire is manipulative literature, and even critics may not be immune. What we might regard as our sound analytical interpretation of echoes and differences between the earlier and later Satires may actually be a scripted, compliant response.
