1 Horace; Jacob Fuchs & William S. Anderson (Intro. ) HORACE'S SATIRES AND EPISTLES
W. W. Norton & Company 1977 0393090930 / 9780393090932 Softcover Very Good 
Light shelfwear. Light yellowing and faint creasing to rear wrap. ; 128 pages; Early in his life, and again in maturity, Horace sought to turn his poetic skills to the uses of moral and aesthetic discussion in the series of didactic works translated here. In the Satires, Horace adopts one persona after another, each of which reduces himself to absurdity in the process of trying to argue a point of view about the ethical or artistic life. The form of the Epistles permits Horace to write with particular intimacy, addressing moral issues in a persuasive yet informal way. The third epistle, The Art of Poetry, on the other hand, is a formal poem addressed to the emperor Augustus, and seeks to educate the poetic taste of the ruler of the western world.
