The Satires of Horace (65–8 BC), written in the troubled decade ending with the establishment of Augustus’ regime, provide an amusing treatment of men’s perennial enslavement to money, power, glory and sex. Epistles I, addressed to the poet’s friends, deals with the problem of achieving contentment amid the complexities of urban life, while Epistles II and the Ars Poetica discuss Latin poetry – its history and social functions, and the craft required for its success. Both works have had a powerful influence on later Western literature, inspiring poets from Ben Jonson and Alexander Pope to W. H. Auden and Robert Frost. The Satires of Persius (AD 34–62) are highly idiosyncratic, containing a courageous attack on the poetry and morals of his wealthy contemporaries – even the ruling emperor, Nero.

Aules Persius Flaccus (34-62 AD) left a mere 650 lines of verse; enough, though, to make him famous for his denunciatory, moralizing satires on Neronian society. This reissue of the best modern translation, by the distinguished American poet W.S. Merwin, brings back into print a neglected classic. The introduction and notes are by a noted expert on Roman satire.

Aulus Persius Flaccus (A.D. 34-62) wrote in racy conversational Latin six satires countering contemporary vice with Stoic morality; he died young. This is not easy poetry, with its sudden shifts of tone, switches of speaker and situation, vivid evocation of the everyday roman background, and confident handling of philosophical positions. But it is still a good read. This edition prints the Latin text faced with a brilliant verse translation by Guy Lee. The introduction and commentary provided by William Barr make it a suitable class text.
