By Horace,David Mankin,John Svarlien

The Satires of Horace provide a hodgepodge of genres and kinds: philosophy and bawdry; significant stories and novelistic vignettes; pics of the poet, his contemporaries, and his predecessors; jibes, discussion, travelogue, rants, and recipes; and poetic results in a number of modes. For all their obvious lightheartedness, despite the fact that, the poems either remove darkness from and undergo the marks of a momentous occasion in global heritage, one during which Horace himself performed an energetic role--the loss of life of the Roman Republic and the beginning of the Principate.
