Title: The Dialogues of Lucian, Author: Cappelli, Length: pages, Published:

Against this artificial revival of mythological faith, Lucian pitted the influence of his tremendous satirical powers. In the “Dialogues of the Gods,” he pulls the curtain aside—exposing the Gods as they engage in private disputes, domestic brawls, and love affairs, with their jealousies and scandals, their paltry strifes and petty motives. Brand new Book. In this modern adaptation of Dialogues of the Dead, Baudelaire Jones remains true to the original spirit of Lucian's dialogues, if not the details. Most of the antiquated cultural references have been updated to modern equivalents that the average reader can more easily understand, and several of Lucian's original characters.

  The unsurpassed satirist of the ancient era was a young Syrian named Lucian, who, writing in Greek in the second century a.d., combined wit, irony, fearless candor, and exuberant comic fantasy to create the triumphantly irreverent dialogues and stories contained in this book. A translation of fourteen of Lucian's dialogues, offering a cross-section of his styles and satirical targets, from serious polemic (Alexander, Peregrinus) to lighter squibs and character-portrayals (Dialogues of the Courtesans). Also included are How to Write History and his most famous piece, A True History, a parody of the popular vogue for fabulous traveler's tales.
