  HORACE - LoveToKnow Article on HORACE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Horace is so much of a moralist in all his writings that, in order to enter into the spirit both of his familiar and of his lyrical poetry, it is essential to realize what were his views of life and the influences under which they were formed.
Horace also followed Lucilius in the variety of forms which his satire assumes, and especially in the frequent adoption of the form of dialogue, derived from the dramatic medley which was the original character of the Roman Satura.
Horaces satire is accordingly to a great extent a reproduction in form, manner, substance and tone of the satire of Lucilius; or rather it is a casting in the mould of Lucilius of his own observation and experience.

 Horace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Horace never took his father's care and sacrifice for granted; his relationship with his father remains one of the most endearing personal episodes to survive from the classical period.
Horace was a member of a literary circle that included Virgil and Lucius Varius Rufus; they introduced him to Maecenas, friend and confidant of Augustus.
Horace is generally considered by classicists to be, along with Virgil, the greatest of the Latin poets.

 Horace
UINTUS HORATIUS FLACCUS, known in English as Horace, was born at Venusia, near the border of Apulia, in 65 B.C. His father, a former slave who had freed himself before the birth of his son, sent him to school in Rome.
While it has been clearly substantiated that Horace drew upon a non-extant treatise by Neoptolemus of Parium, an Alexandrian critic of uncertain date, the fact that Horace made use of and molded the ideas of his predecessor is important.
Horace's doctrine of "pleasure and profit" was to be repeated innumerable times, and is still a criterion of criticism.

Horace died shortly after Maecenas and was buried next to his friend in his gardens on the Esquiline Hill in Rome.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2005.07.82   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Horace's choice to "pick[] on smaller, more everyday targets," Hills argues, was driven by his social insecurity (though he claims Horace shared an "easy friendship with his patron and his circle of creative friends" [16]) and the general political turbulence (14).
Horace's charm offensive engaged his readers, not merely by avoiding being "dry and dusty" and piously sermonizing, but by gently disarming with humor and oblique indirections that "highlight his own weaknesses" (15).
Hills also depicts Horace revising his tone with Augustus, stumping for imperial moral and religious reforms, calling for a return to old-fashioned civic and military virtues, yet indirectly advising Caesar to rule as if he truly was appointed by Jupiter to save Rome and the world.

 Artful Dodge - Selections from 30/31 - Horace - "Satire II, vi"
Horace was formerly a scriba, a bureaucrat in the Treasury.
It starts on the Sabine Farm (1-28), switches to the city Horace and his urban dither (29-76), returns us to the comparative ease and simplicity of the farm (76-110), and then takes the two mice back to the city to be terrified and chastened (110-131).
Horace poses a challenge because he is both a classical author, thus requiring of his translators more than casual knowledge of Roman life and poetry, and a classic, the most quoted author of antiquity.

 The Maxims of Horace
Horace, however, is far more superficial than the Greek; though in justice it should be said that his observations were not intended as a formal treatise, being rather the somewhat casual comment which one man of letters might naturally have written to another.
It was the influence of Horace, however, which was largely responsible for the perpetuation of the so-called "rules of Aristotle" through the Renaissance to modern times.
Some of the medieval and Renaissance writers, however, had a positive genius for misinterpreting and misreading both Aristotle and Horace; so neither one should be held to blame for all the crimes committed in the name of classicism.

 Horace (65-8 B.C.)
Sprung from a simple freedman of Venusia, and educated at Rome and Athens, HORACE (Quintus Horatius Flaccus) built on the piety and tastes of a peasant the culture of a man of the world.
In the matter, as in the form of his poetry, one is first and most struck by the perfect balance and union of the different strains which had gone to the making of his life and character.
It is this quality which has made Horace the prophet of the even mind, of moderation, of kindly and humorous wisdom for all time.

Quintus Horatius Flaccus, (December 8, 65 BC - 8 BC) known in the English world as Horace was the leading lyric poet in Latin.
His father spent considerable amounts of money on Horace's education, including sending him to Athens for the study of Greek and philosophy.
He wrote many Latin phrases that remain in use, in Latin or in translation, including carpe diem, "seize the day," and aurea mediocritas, the "golden mean." His works are highly derivative of Greek models, and written exclusively in Greek metres which were sometimes a difficult fit to Latin structure and syntax.

Horace fell under his sway (E.2.2:46-48), as did M. Cicero, and joined the hopeless attempt to reestablish the Republic.
Horace possessed at least three and possibly five properties, one of which and perhaps two were in the fashionable Tiburtine district (Lyne 9-11).
Fraenkel's exploration of the debt Horace owed Pindar in his six Roman odes (C.3.1-6), and the problems produced by the "anxiety of influence" as it has been recently called, is without equal in all Horatian scholarship.
