Abstract

This article consists of a transcription of the texts of two previously unprinted seventeenth-century verse translations, with accompanying editorial matter. John Knyvett's dates to 1639, at which time Knyvett, whose Juvenal was known to Sir Thomas Browne but has since disappeared from view, was an undergraduate at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. J.H.’s of 1664 is also a very early English version of his chosen author, and remains the only English attempt on In Eutropium in verse to this day. The two translations are not otherwise connected.
