Page 223 - Troianum orditur ab ovo: semper ad eventum festinat et in medias res non secus ac notas auditorem rapit et quae 150 desperat tractata nitescere posse relinquit, atque ita mentitur, sic veris falsa remiscet, primo ne medium, medio ne discrepet imum. Tu quid ego et populus mecum desideret audi, si plausoris eges aulaea manentis et usque sessuri, donec cantor "Vos plaudite' dicat: aetatis cuiusque notandi sunt tibi mores, mobilibusque decor naturis dandus et annis.
Page 68 - Troiae qui mores hominum multorum vidit et urbes.' non fumum ex fulgore, sed ex fumo dare lucem cogitat, ut speciosa dehinc miracula promat, Antiphaten Scyllamque et cum Cyclope Charybdin. nec reditum Diomedis ab interitu Meleagri, nec gemino bellum Troianum orditur ab ovo : semper ad eventum festinat et in medias res non secus ac notas auditorem rapit, et quae desperat tractata nitescere posse relinquit, 150 atque ita mentitur, sic veris falsa remiscet, primo ne medium, medio ne discrepet imum.
Page 63 - Vicinas urbes alit et grave sentit aratrum, Seu cursum mutavit iniquum frugibus amnis Doctus iter melius, mortalia facta peribunt, Nedum sermonum stet honos et gratia vivax. Multa renascentur, quae jam cecidere, cadentque 70 Quae nunc sunt in honore vocabula, si volet usus, Quem penes arbitrium est et jus et norma loquendi.
Page 72 - Verum ubi plura nitent in carmine, non ego paucis Offendar maculis, quas aut incuria fudit Aut humana parum cavit natura.
Page 35 - Lycamben. 25 ac ne me foliis ideo brevioribus ornes quod timui mutare modos et carminis artem, temperat Archilochi Musam pede mascula Sappho, temperat Alcaeus, sed rebus et ordine dispar, nec socerum quaerit quem versibus oblinat atris, 30 nec sponsae laqueum famoso carmine nectit.
Page 28 - Mandela bibit, rugosus frigore pagus, 105 quid sentire putas? quid credis, amice, precari? sit mihi quod nunc est, etiam minus, et mihi vivam quod superest aevi, si quid superesse volunt di ; sit bona librorum et provisae frugis in annum copia, neu fluitem dubiae spe pendulus horae.
Page 65 - ... partes in bellum missi ducis: ille profecto 315 reddere personae scit convenientia cuique. respicere exemplar vitae morumque iubebo doctum imitatorem et vivas hinc ducere voces.
Page 67 - Fervidus, et matrona potens an sedula nutrix, Mercatorne vagus cultorne virentis agelli, Colchus an Assyrius, Thebis nutritus an Argis.
Page 54 - ... at qui legitimum cupiet fecisse poema, cum tabulis animum censoris sumet honesti ; 110 audebit, quaecumque parum splendoris habebunt et sine pondere erunt et honore indigna ferentur, verba movere loco, quamvis invita recedant et versentur adhuc intra penetralia Vestae...
Page 72 - verum operi longo fas est obrepere somnum. 360 ut pictura poesis : erit quae si propius stes te capiat magis, et quaedam si longius abstes...

About the author (1869)

Horace is one of the most noted poets and satirists of Ancient times. Born Quintus Horatius Flaccus, to a former slave in 65 B.C., Horace was taken to Rome and Athens to be educated. He joined Brutus's army after the assassination of Julius Caesar, and later came under favor of the emperor Octavian. Horace used his observations of politics to great advantage in his works. Horace is chiefly remembered for his four books of Odes. Technically and lyrically stunning, they contain word organization and imagery that is employed masterfully. He is also noted for the brilliant satires that brought him to the attention of the poet Virgil. Virgil introduce him to Maecenas, a wealthy patron, who would help Horace throughout his life. Horace earned a great reputation during his lifetime and was an example to many later generations of poets. Horace died in 8 B.C., a few months after his friend and patron Maecenas.
