LUCIAN: DIALOGUES OF THE DEAD, Vol. 2

Lucian's Dialogues of the Dead is a satirical work centering around the Cynic philosophers, who lived modestly while they were alive and are now living comfortably in the abysmal conditions of the Underworld, while those who had lived lives of luxury are in torment when faced by the same conditions. Lucian frequently made fun of philosophers and no school was spared from his mockery. Since the underworld is the place of final judgment, it is the perfect location to have various figures from history and legend meet and reflect on the choices they made in life. Wealthy men, famous kings, heroes of old, and the gods themselves are all subjected to Lucian's satirical gaze, but always with a combination of learned wit and cleverness.
