Lucian of Samosata (2nd century A.D.) was a famed Syrian philosopher, satirist, and novelist. His broad range of style and prolific output have made him immensely popular throughout the ages. Very little is authentically known of the life of Lucian. He was born in the Roman province of Syria though selected Greek as his literary language. Collected here are all of Lucian's major works. This includes his satires, dialogues, apologias, essays, and proto-novels. Lucian's sharp wit and searing criticisms are heightened by his exacting and eloquent style. He could move effortlessly from the bawdy to the supremely sophisticated, touching on all strata of the ancient intellect. His extensive traveling across Europe further influenced and developed his writing. Lucian's eccentric prose pieces tell of interplanetary war, alien encounters, and space travel. Consequently Lucian is considered the first science fiction novelist. Yet Lucian remains most lauded for his pointed satires, mocking authoritative tyrants and intellectual trends. In "The Works of Lucian of Samosata" we see Lucian in all of his talents and colors, offering insight into the classical mind.
