VIRGIL (Publius Vergilius Maro), greatest of Roman poets, was a countryman's son born in 70 B.C. at Andes near Mantua and was educated at Verona, Milan and Rome. Slow in speech, shy in manner, thoughtful in mind, weak in health, he went back to northern Italy for a quiet life. Influenced by the group of poets there, he may have written some of the doubtful poems included in our Virgilian manuscripts. All his undoubted extant work is written in his perfect hexameters. Earliest comes the collection of ten pleasingly artificial bucolic poems the Eclogues, which imitated freely Theocritus' idylls. They deal with the pastoral life and love, but allude also to Virgil's (temporary?) loss of his home by confiscation. Most famous is the mysterious fourth eclogue anticipating a return to the Golden Age. Before 29 B.C. came one of the best of all didactic works, the four books of Georgics on tillage, trees, cattle, bees - a splendid product of a countryman-poet. Virgil's remaining years were spent in composing his great, now wholly finished, epic the Aeneid, inspired by the Emperor Augustus' rule: if not by Augustus himself, on the traditional theme of Rome's origins through Aeneas of Troy - a poem Homeric in metre and method but influenced by later Greek and Roman literature, philosophy and learning; and deeply Roman in spirit, in feeling national not personal. Virgil died in Greece in 19 B.C., intending to round off the Aeneid. He had left in Rome a request that all its twelve books should be destroyed if he were to die then, but they were published by the executors of his will
The Satires and Epistles of Horace : a modern English verse translation by Horace( Book )

HORACE (Quintus Horatius Flaccus, 65 B.C.) was born at Venusia, son of a freedman clerk who had him well educated at Rome and Athens. Horace supported the ill-fated killers of Caesar, lost his property and became a secretary in the Treasury, and began to write poetry. Maecenas, lover of letters, to whom Virgil and Varius introduced Horace in 39 B.C., became his friend and made him largely independent by giving him a farm. After 30 B.C. Horace knew and aided with his pen the first Emperor Augustus, who after Virgil's death in 19 B.C. engaged him to celebrate imperial affairs in poetry. Horace refused to become Augustus' private secretary and died a few months after Maecenas. Both lyric (in various metres) and other work (in hexameters) was spread over the period 40-10 or 9 B.C. It is Roman in spirit, Greek in technique. In the two books of Satires he is a moderate social critic and commentator; the two books of Epistles are more intimate and polished, the secont book being literary criticism as is also the Ars Poetica which has given us phrases such as 'purple patch'. 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

Terence's comedies are adaptations from Greek New Comedy, which flourished in Athens at the end of the fourth century and in the first half of the third, and was so called to distinguish it from the Old Comedy of the fifth century, and the Middle Comedy, a less important transition stage between the two. Old and New Comedy are two totally different dramatic forms, reflecting the different conditions of life in the two periods

The essays, written by internationally-known scholars, include a discussion of the three worlds of the Satires, and a study of Horace's poetic craft in the Odes - his greatest technical accomplishment. The final chapter is devoted entirel
