Horace: A Life by Peter Levi

In this first substantial biography of the poet Horace since 1957, Peter Levi presents a complete picture of the life of Horace and the world in which he lived. Horaces work spanned all aspects of Roman life: politics, the arts, religion, and the authority of the emperor while his poems about friendship, philosophy, love, and sex still have universal appeal. This biography focuses on the poets work and development by considering details of Horaces romantic liaisons and why he never married, what the status of his father--a freedman--meant to the poet, and his distinctive brand of philosophy.Horace: A Lifeprovides fascinating insight into one of the greatest of the Roman poets.
