In this course we trace the career of Horace, from his witty vignettes of Roman social life at the end of the Republic and the dawn of the Empire in the Satires, to some of the most memorable lines of Roman poetry in his Odes. Horace rose from fighting on the wrong side of history against Octavian to being Rome’s poet laureate.
