About the author (2009)

John Henderson is Professor of Classics at the University of Cambridge and a Fellow of King's College. He teaches like crazy, but has also written wicked books and weird articles across the range of classical topics, including a fun edition with text, translation, and commentary on Plautus, Asinaria: the one with the asses (2006). His DPhil Oxon was on the fabulous Phaedrus, and his scholarly output since has centered on reacting enthusiastically to Roman texts, with quirky books on Seneca, Statius, Pliny, Juvenal, and Isidore, and storming articles on Latin poetry and history collected in Fighting for Rome: Poets and Caesars, History and Civil War (1998), with other outrages collected in Writing down Rome: Satire, Comedy and other Offences in Latin Poetry (1999).
