It s well possible this isn t the book I actually read, so let me be clear, the satires I ve read from Horace are Qui fit, Maecenas, Omnibus hoc vitium, and Eupolis atque Cratinus.In my journey to read some of what its considered the greatest literature of all time, this is definitely a high point for the BCE writings I m a lover of satire and comedy at heart, and straightaway it s obvious Horace is the same though I wouldn t dare to say I m a kindred spirit to someone who seems as good It s well possible this isn t the book I actually read, so let me be clear, the satires I ve read from Horace are Qui fit, Maecenas, Omnibus hoc vitium, and Eupolis atque Cratinus.In my journey to read some of what its considered the greatest literature of all time, this is definitely a high point for the BCE writings I m a lover of satire and comedy at heart, and straightaway it s obvious Horace is the same though I wouldn t dare to say I m a kindred spirit to someone who seems as good as this man, but one of his openings resonates with me easily, in which he apologizes for being comedic while talking about something serious, but then aside Why truth may not be gay, I cannot see Me neither, and let me tell you it s a lotfun to read it that way.It s clear through Horace s poetry that he had some level of self examination For all his jokes and prodding at the faults of mankind and of his neighbors, he s just as ready to admit his own faults pretty openly, and that s becoming of a satirist for sure He tells us how he is loath to recite in public, and thinks the grandstanding of his fellow poets is a bit absurd in the first place He admits that he isn t a prolific writer, but considers it his grace to say as much as he can in fewer words rather than making you read until you drop dead.All that self examination and joking feels pretty rare to me based on other stuff I ve read from this era, and it makes it all a lotinteresting and human to read.Aside from just praising his style, Horace does a great job of what all good satirists are trying to do in the first place point out what people are doing that s absurd or bad for them, and also tell them how they can fix it, while hopefully letting them have a chuckle at themselves He does it admirably, and these poems are all fun and funny to read from start to finish in my opinion.So 5 out of 5 I ll definitely be revisiting Horace s other works to see if they re all as enjoyable as these three satires were He might be one of the first poets I ve ever truly felt like I understood where they were coming from, and I think hearing what else he has to say might be great for me, both as entertainment and as a lesson to how to appreciate lifefreely Quite a mixed bag Some very funny bits, some quite tedious Some real insights probably given genre specific issues into Roman cultural values around inter alia slavery The themes are somewhat lacking in variety, but highlights include a parody of Homer with Ulysses turning parasitic legacy hunter and discussions of witchcraft Good stuff on the circle of Maecenas too.

These rather lured me in with a lovely pen portrait of Horace being followed around by a kind of Roman Michael Gove, a hanger on, to whom he is quite magnificently rude in a Blackadder style And there are, to be sure, nuggets of juicy and joyful satire as we understand the term here there s a lovely moment when a woman whose son has been ill prays to Jupiter that if her son is healed on his feast day, she ll make him stand naked in the Tiber, effectively killing him stone dead Thank you Anti These rather lured me in with a lovely pen portrait of Horace being followed around by a kind of Roman Michael Gove, a hanger on, to whom he is quite magnificently rude in a Blackadder style And there are, to be sure, nuggets of juicy and joyful satire as we understand the term here there s a lovely moment when a woman whose son has been ill prays to Jupiter that if her son is healed on his feast day, she ll make him stand naked in the Tiber, effectively killing him stone dead Thank you Anti Vax movement, your time has been foretold There s a fairly glorious ribbing of a philosopher dedicated to Epicureanism who felt one could know all one needed to know about a person s moral character by their enjoyment of one sauce or another the Marmite debate in Ancient Rome, essentially , and there are some nicely savage rib punches at civil servants who wouldn t travel without a dozen slaves and a travel kitchen, showing the increasing decadence of even petty functionaries There s also a glorious reflection in the very first satire, dealing with people who hoard money, enjoying nothing in their life because they always fear that letting their money out of their grasp will immediately lead to crippling poverty.So there are some really punchy pieces in this collection of Satires in itself no mean feat at this remote a distance in time On the whole though, Horace has a fairly languid, understated style his is the satire of crocodiles, swimming along jusssst under the water, so you only really feel it when it rears up and bites your face off That can lead readers to underestimate the power of what he does, and to regard his satires as works of no great satirical power But as I say, when Horace finally opens his jaws, you won t miss the moment He s just been lulling you into a false sense of security, relaxing you so you don t see him coming.Worth a read, but also worth remembering the remote antiquity that separates you from the reader, and cutting him some slack for a style which has fallen somewhat out of fashion in our set up, punchline age Metti che alla maturit ti capita la satira n.2 del libro primo di Orazio Metti che traduci l inicipit cos geishe, odalische, danceuses, venditori di droghe forse potevi osare spacciatori a quel punto.Metti che non sai che preparare per cena Satira n 4 libro secondo, L arte della cucina Qui trovi mille ricette, tra cui la doppia salsa con erbette tritate, zafferano e distillato di olive Prodotti DOC, zafferano di Corico e olive di Venafro.Metti che vuoi sapere tutte le balle di Roma, Metti che alla maturit ti capita la satira n.2 del libro primo di Orazio Metti che traduci l inicipit cos geishe, odalische, danceuses, venditori di droghe forse potevi osare spacciatori a quel punto.Metti che non sai che preparare per cena Satira n 4 libro secondo, L arte della cucina Qui trovi mille ricette, tra cui la doppia salsa con erbette tritate, zafferano e distillato di olive Prodotti DOC, zafferano di Corico e olive di Venafro.Metti che vuoi sapere tutte le balle di Roma, Orazio un vero pettegolo, ma di spessore Ti mette in rima la cena fallimentare dell ultimo parvenu dell urbe e ti racconta dei cacciatori seriali di testamenti.Metti che sei un follower del nostro Lui un vero blogger, rende al meglio i piccoli eventi e avventure del viaggio lungo la via Appia ad incontrare amici e conoscenti, mentre il capo si occupa di politica.Metti che hai necessit di un parere Ecco pronta la storiella del topo di citt e del topo di campagna.Non ero per nulla preparata per una lettura del genere `Download ↠ Satire ☜ Testo latino a fronte
