The Odes and Carmen Saeculare

Quintus HORATIUS FLACCUS (HORACE) (65 BC - 8 BC), translated by John CONINGTON (1825 - 1869)

Flawlessly hammered out, as if from eternal bronze—"aere perennius"—The Odes of Horace are the consummate expression of the pride, the reserve, the tragic playfulness, the epicurean calm, the absolute distinction of the Imperial Roman spirit. A few lines taken at random and learned by heart would act as a talisman in all hours to drive away the insolent pressure of the vulgar and common crowd. - John Cowper Powys (1916)
