Excerpt from The First Book of the Satires of Horace, in English Verse: With Illustrations From Rich's "Antiquities;" A Life of Horace; And Articles on the Roman House, Amphitheatre, Theatre, and Circus
It may be as well to say a few words on the distinctive features of the satire and philosophy of Horace, as it is very possible that many, who are not acquainted with this part of his works, may conclude that the one is merely a denuncia tion against men's Vices and defects, and that the other IS either vague and dreamy, or Utopian and impossible.
