The republic and, the laws by Marcus Tullius Cicero( file )
19 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 1,915 libraries worldwide
H̀owever one defines Man, the same definition applies to us all. This is sufficient proof that there is no essential difference within mankind.' (Laws l.29-30) Cicero's The Republic is an impassioned plea for responsible governement written just before the civil war that ended the Roman Republic in a dialogue following Plato. Drawing on Greek political theory, the work embodies the mature reflections of a Roman ex-consul on the nature of political organization, on justice in society, and on the qualities needed in a statesman. Its sequel, The Laws, expounds the influential doctrine of Natural

Odes and epodes by Horace( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and Latin and held by 667 libraries worldwide
"The poetry of Horace (born 65 BC) is richly varied, its focus moving between public and private concerns, urban and rural settings, Stoic and Epicurean thought. This new Loeb Classical Library edition of the great Roman poet's Odes and Epodes boasts a faithful and fluid translation and reflects current scholarship." "Horace took pride in being the first Roman to write a body of lyric poetry. For models he turned to Greek lyric, especially to the poetry of Alcaeus, Sappho, and Pindar; but his poems are set in a Roman context. His four books of odes cover a wide range of moods and topics. Some are public poems, upholding the traditional values of courage, loyalty, and piety; and there are hymns to gods. But most of the odes are on private themes: chiding or advising friends; speaking about love and amorous situations, often amusingly. Horace's seventeen epodes, which he called iambi, were also an innovation for Roman literature. Like the odes they were inspired by a Greek model: the seventh century iambic poetry of Archilochus. Love and political concerns are frequent themes; the tone is only occasionally aggressive. "In his language he is triumphantly adventurous," Quintilian said of Horace; Niall Rudd's new translation reflects his different voices."--BOOK JACKET
Satires by Juvenal( Book )
30 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and Latin and held by 601 libraries worldwide
Rooted in the traditional land-owning class, Juvenal wrote brilliant and inflammatory satires on the decadent and corrupt Roman élite, a fact that resulted in him being exiled from Rome for many years
Themes in Roman satire by Niall Rudd( Book )
19 editions published between 1985 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 545 libraries worldwide
This text sets out to illuminate all the central themes of Roman satire. It offers a synchronic assessment of different aspects of the work of Lucilius, Horace, Persius and Juvenal: their aims; their styles; and their views on freedom of speech, class patronage, Greeks and sex. In addition it contains a sympathetic presentation in English of the poetry of Lucilius

A commentary on Horace : Odes, book III by R. G. M Nisbet( Book )
22 editions published between 2004 and 2010 in English and held by 435 libraries worldwide
This book is a successor to the commentaries by Nisbet and Hubbard on Odes I and II, but it takes critical note of the abundant recent writing on Horace. It starts from the precise interpretation of the Latin; attention is paid to the nuances implied by the word-order; parallel passages are quoted, not to depreciate the poet's originality but to elucidate his meaning and to show how he adapted his predecessors; sometimes major English poets are cited to exemplify his influence on the tradition. In expounding the so-called Roman Odes the editors reject not only uncritical acceptance of Augustan ideology but also more recent attempts to find subversion in a court-poet. They show how Greek moralizing, particularly by the Epicureans, is applied to contemporary social situations. Poems on country festivals are treated sympathetically in the belief that the tolerant and inclusive religion of the Romans can easily be misunderstood. The poet's wit is emphasized in his addresses both to eminent Romans and to women with Greek names; the latter poems are taken as reflecting his general experience rather than particular occasions.; Though Horace's ironic self-presentation must not be understood too literally, the editors reject the modern tendency to treat the author as unknowable. Although the text of the Odes is not printed separately, the headings to the notes provide a continuous text. The editors put forward a number of conjectures, most of them necessarily tentative, and in the few cases where they disagree, both opinions are summarized
Epistles, book II ; and, Epistle to the Pisones (Ars poetica) by Horace( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 399 libraries worldwide
Horace 2000 : a celebration : essays for the bimillennium ( Book )
8 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 370 libraries worldwide
Quintus Horatius Flaccus (Horace) died on 27 November, 8 B.C. This volume provides a fitting tribute to one who was both Rome's greatest lyric poet and its most engaging moralist. Horace 2000: A Celebration contains chapters from seven established scholars, each representing a major aspect of Horace's work. Because of their different backgrounds - in politics, literary criticism, and cultural history - the writers adopt different approaches to his poetry. They occasionally disagree, but they all have something thought-provoking and significant to say. The volume also includes a Latin poem in praise of Horace

Landor's Latin poems : fifty pieces by Walter Savage Landor( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and Latin and held by 91 libraries worldwide
"This selection says nothing about the English writings of Walter Savage Landor (1775-1864), which run to sixteen volumes; and apart from a brief introductory sketch it makes only occasional remarks about his life. Instead it presents fifty illustrations of his exceptional dexterity in Latin verse, showing his hostile treatment of political figures (including royalty), his relations with friends, his pleasures and sufferings as a lover, and his delight in the changing phases of nature. The long closing piece treats, within a mythological framework, the great forces that govern the world and its inhabitants." "Landor offers an interesting contrast with Dr Johnson, who died in 1784 when Landor was nine and who is sometimes wrongly described as the last important writer with an inner command of Latin. First, though Landor was careless about money, and at times in serious trouble with debt, he had an inheritance which put him in a different position from Johnson's. Again, while some of Johnson's Latin pieces show a deeply felt belief in religion, Landor's deities are those of classical paganism. Other points emerge from a consideration of what they owe to their Latin predecessors. Both draw on Vergil - especially on the pastorals (Eclogues). And both are indebted to Horace for the metrical forms which he took over from the Greeks and for his genial good sense. But Horace also wrote some abusive epodes on women (nos. 8 and 12) that, though shunned by the fastidious doctor, foreshadow Landor's attacks on Princess Caroline of Brunswick." "But it is Catullus who provides the most revealing contrast. His eleven-syllable line, though ignored by Johnson, is frequently used by Landor. In one such line Catullus brands Julius Caesar, who was already one of the most powerful men in Rome, as "an evil pervert" and "a catamite" (57.1-2). That must have appealed to the rebel in Landor. In another, a girl called Ameana is insulted in the most brutal terms (41). But it was primarily for his infatuation with Lesbia and his anguished disillusion that Catullus served as a model for Landor. That is made clear in the wild hyperbole of the very first poem, in which the iron domination of the Roman empire is redeemed by Catullus' love-poetry. As we read it, the intervening centuries collapse, and we are left with one gifted young poet talking to another in a shared language." "This book is intended primarily for readers whose Latin is somewhat rusty, but even the translation (it is hoped) may help to revive interest in a writer who was admired for his passion and dexterity and detested by his victims."--BOOK JACKET
