Corneille takes his plot from pre-Republican Roman history - the legendary episode of the triple combat between two sets of brothers to decide a war between Rome and Alba. Horatius's sister, Camilla, is betrothed to his opponent Curiatius, and his wife Sabina is Curiatius's sister. The scene is set for a clash between heroic male commitment to state interests and female values which give prime place to individual feeling. Horace, containing pointed allusion to contemporary French military ambitions, has the power to challenge and disturb modern audiences with its unflinching reckoning of the personal cost of national glory."@en ;
