    A sundial on a gravestone in Kilbirnie Auld Kirk, Kilbirnie, Ayrshire, Scotland. The motto at top reads, "Life is but a passing shadow, the shadow of a bird on the wing." Many sundials bear a motto to reflect the sentiments of its maker or owner. Be as true to each other as this dial is to the sun. Hours fly, Flowers bloom and die. Saturnian meter or verse is an old Latin and Italic poetic form, of which the principles of versification have become obscure. Only complete uncontroversial verses survive. 95 literary verses and partial fragments have been preserved as quotations in later grammatical writings, as well as 37 verses in funerary or dedicatory inscriptions.

Other Roman poets, notably Plautus and Catullus, had imitated the Greek lyric verse forms, but no one before had used them so widely or successfully.

Horace adapted the forms for the social life of Augustan Rome, and his Odes were not generally on ambitious themes: no epics or extended disquisitions.

Summary "The Odes of Horace" are the lyric masterpieces of the golden age of Latin literature. They speak of the politics of the time, of the return to peace after the agony of civil war; they are imbued with consciousness of the brevity of life and the inevitability of death; but they are also filled with the pleasures of friendship, wine and love.

This book is not about loss, its all about what Horace loves about his family. At preschool and play situations its interesting that kids tend to play more with other kids that look like them. And adopted kids often want VERY much to look like their parents so that they don't stick out and are just like other families/5(24).

Horace’s Ode struck me as a simple yet emotive attempt to convey the feelings of a jealous lover. The structure of the poem – initially outlining the feelings of the poet, then exploring the infidelity of his lover and finally delivering a warning to her – is simple, yet carries emotional depth and power.

Horace has books on Goodreads with ratings. Horace’s most popular book is Odes and Epodes. Through a combination of finely wrought English verse and rarefied illustrations, Horace is not just a children's book, nor a mere work of art. Horace is a transformative tale for our times.

Horace would likely stand on a shelf between a collector’s works of literature and art, perhaps propped against a wall near the nursery.

In Book One the poet looks back on his life and offers younger men his wisdom and experiences as a model for aging with dignity -- even though Horace is only 45. He writes with an effortless grace (a trait he later claims in The Art of Poetry is the primary duty of poets) with lines that seem ready-made to be classic epigrams sprinkled throughout.4/5.

Horace's comic genius has also had a profound influence on the Western literary tradition through such authors as Swift, Pope, and Boileau, but interest in the Satires has dwindled due to the difficulty of capturing Horace's wit and formality with the techniques of contemporary free verse.

Horace, Latin in full Quintus Horatius Flaccus, (born December 65 bc, Venusia, Italy—died Nov. 27, 8 bc, Rome), outstanding Latin lyric poet and satirist under the emperor most frequent themes of his Odes and verse Epistles are love, friendship, philosophy, and the art of poetry.

Life. Horace was probably of the Sabellian hillman stock of Italy’s central highlands. Excerpt from The Odes of Horace in Four Books: Translated Into English Lyric Verse This failure by the greatest master of the English language may serve as a warning to those who imagine it possible to translate literally that same felicity of words already alluded to; while the success of Dryden's paraphrase, in some of its most striking passages, affords a Author: Horace Horace.

The Latin poet Horace is, along with his friend Virgil, the most celebrated and influential of the poets of Emperor Augustus's reign. These marvelously constructed poems, with their unswerving clarity of vision and extraordinary range of tone and emotion, have deeply affected the poetry of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Herbert, Marvell, Dryden, Pope, Samuel Johnson, Wordsworth,/5.

19 BC, in which he advises poets on the art of writing poetry and drama. The Ars Poetica has "exercised a great influence in later ages on European literature, notably on French drama" and has inspired poets and authors since it was written.

Although it has been well-known since the Middle Ages, it has been used .The fourth book of Odes, the second book of Epistles, a hymn (the Carmen Saeculare), and the Ars Poetica, or Epistle to the Pisos, appeared c B.C.

Horace was an unrivaled lyric poet. His early poems show the influence of the Greek Archilochus, but his later verse displays complete and individualized adaption of Greek meters to Latin.
