By Horace,David Mankin,John Svarlien
The Satires of Horace provide a hodgepodge of genres and kinds: philosophy and bawdry; marvelous stories and novelistic vignettes; photos of the poet, his contemporaries, and his predecessors; jibes, discussion, travelogue, rants, and recipes; and poetic results in various modes. For all their obvious lightheartedness, even if, the poems either light up and endure the marks of a momentous occasion in global historical past, one within which Horace himself performed an energetic role--the loss of life of the Roman Republic and the delivery of the Principate.
