              Horace exposes the vices and follies of his Roman contemporaries in his Satires, and the Epistles include the famous Art of Poetry, whose advice on poetic style influenced many later writers and dramatists. John Davie's new prose translations perfectly capture the ribald style of... the original.

              Edited by Dilke, O. A. W.; Introduction by Cowan, Robert

In relating this story, Statius explores the nature of gender and the limits of the epic genre, while playfu...lly positioning himself in the epic - and wider - poetic tradition.
