This volume is the first holistic investigation of Roman literature and literary culture under Nerva, Trajan and Hadrian (AD 96–).

Book X of the Letters contains his correspondence with Trajan during this period, and includes letters about the early Christians. Pliny's Letters are important as a social document of his times.

They tell us about the man himself and his wide interests, and about his many friends, including Tacitus, Martial. The first epigram of Book 1 is fascinating as it proclaims this is to be the work of the world-famous Martial.
