The Satires are a collection of satirical poems by the Latin author Juvenal written in the late 1st and early 2nd centuries AD. Francis Hodgson (1781 – 1852), (also known as Frank Hodgson in correspondence) was a reforming Provost of Eton, educator, cleric, writer of verse, and friend of Byron. He was author of, among others, a translation of Juvenal; Lady Jane Grey, with Miscellaneous Poems in English and Latin (1809); and Sir Edgar, a Tale, in two Cantos (1810).
