Half-inch chip to jacket spine head, corners of front jacket flap clipped, pencil note on rear jacket flap. 1970 Small Hard Cover. xxx, 508, 8 pp. Dual text in Latin and in English. Translated by H.R. Fairclough. 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.
