Horace and Me : Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet Paperback / softback


Horace lived at a pivotal moment. Rome was facing a profound crisis: though it ruled the world, the values which had made it great were disintegrating.

As efficiency and pragmatism became watchwords, Horace championed the `supremely useless' endeavour of poetry, and glorified friendship and wine.

Horace and Me charts Harry Eyres' evolving relationship with the Latin poet to show how, in an era of affluence and excess which seems to be hurtling out of control, Horace can help us navigate our way in uncertain times.
