AUTHOR

Richlin, Amy

SUMMARY

Statues of the god Priapus stood in Roman gardens to warn potential thieves that the god would rape them if they attempted to steal from him. Amy Richlin argues that the attitude of sexual aggressiveness in defence of a bounded area serves as a model for Roman satire from Lucilius to Juvenal. Using literary, anthropological, psychological, and feminist methodologies, she suggests that aggressive sexual humour reinforces aggressive behaviour on both the individual and societal level,and that Roman satire provides an insight into Roman culture.Richlin, Amy is the author of 'Garden of Priapus Sexuality and Aggression in Roman Humor' with ISBN 9780195068733 and ISBN 0195068734.
