Writing in the 30s BC, Horace exposes the vices and follies of his Roman contemporaries, while still finding time to reflect on how to write good satire and along the way revealing his own persona to be as flawed andbigoted as the people he attacks.

Horace: Satires, Epistles and Ars Poetica (Loeb Classical Library, No. 194) (English and Lati. y Horace . English has its own charms, and I like reading English renderings of my favourite Latin and Greek classics. He and Vergil sort of "are" Latin literature.
Temporarily out of stock. Knowing your Horace and Vergil was what made you an educated Roman back then. It is a very poetic kind of prose that the translator uses for his English version here. It is very nice - it captures the wonder-filled sentiment toward his world of the Latin author well. It is quite exotic and imagination engendering reading.

Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 658 BCE) was born at Venusia, son of a freedman clerk who had him well educated at Rome and Athens. Horace supported the ill-fated killers of Caesar, lost his property, became a secretary in the Treasury, and began to write poetry. Maecenas, lover of literature, to whom Virgil and Varius introduced Horace in 39, became his friend and made him largely independent by giving him a farm. After 30 Horace knew and aided with his pen the emperor Augustus, who after Virgil's death in 19 engaged him to celebrate imperial affairs in poetry. Horace refused to become Augustus's private secretary and died a few months after Maecenas. Both lyric (in various metres) and other work (in hexameters) was spread over the period 4010 or 9 BCE. It is Roman in spirit, Greek in technique.
In the two books of Satires Horace is a moderate social critic and commentator; the two books of Epistles are more intimate and polished, the second book being literary criticism as is also the Ars Poetica. The Epodes in various (mostly iambic) metres are akin to the 'discourses' (as Horace called his satires and epistles) but also look towards the famous Odes, in four books, in the old Greek lyric metres used with much skill. Some are national odes about public affairs; some are pleasant poems of love and wine; some are moral letters; all have a rare perfection. The Loeb Classical Library edition of the Odes and Epodes is in volume number 33.
