    edit Life
    Born in Venosa or Venusia, as it was called in his day, a small town in the border region between Apulia and Lucania , Horace was the son of a freedman , but he himself was born free. His father owned a small farm at Venusia, and later moved to Rome and worked as a coactor , a kind of middleman at auctions who would pay the purchase price to the seller and collect it later from the buyer and receive 1% of the purchase price from each of them for his services. The elder Horace was able to spend considerable money on his son's education, accompanying him first to Rome for his primary education, and then sending him to Athens to study Greek and philosophy . The poet later expressed his gratitude in a tribute to his father. In his own words (note that some of the beauty is lost in translation): If my character is flawed by a few minor faults, but is otherwise decent and moral, if you can point out only a few scattered blemishes on an otherwise immaculate surface, if no one can accuse me of greed, or of prurience, or of profligacy, if I live a virtuous life, free of defilement (pardon, for a moment, my self-praise), and if I am to my friends a good friend, my father deserves all the credit... As it is now, he deserves from me unstinting gratitude and praise. I could never be ashamed of such a father, nor do I feel any need, as many people do, to apologize for being a freedman's son.

Home Ancient Theatre Medieval Theatre 16th Century ... Email Us HORACE (65-8 B.C.) Q Satires Odes . He died eight years before the birth of Christ. The Epistle to the Pisos, or Art of Poetry , has been assigned by various authorities to the period between 24 and 7 B.C. Professor Nettleship (in his Lectures and Essays ) believes it to have been written between 24 and 20 B.C. Its interest and value are considerably enhanced in view of the fact that it is, in Professor Saintsbury's words, "the only complete example of literary criticism that we have from any Roman." It is significant that the greater part of its subject-matter is concerned with the drama. 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. The Art of Poetry is on the whole a somewhat arbitrary manual; the greatest importance is there attached to the purely formal side of writing; the dramatist must adhere closely to the five acts, the chorus, and son on; proportion, good sense, decorum, cannot be neglected. Of the practical value of the work before the Renaissance, it is impossible to know; of its influence since that time, it can only be said that it was as widespread as that of

Horace (65-8 B.C.) - Qintus Horatius Flaccus Outstanding Latin lyric poet and satirist. The most frequent themes in Horace's ODES and verse EPISTLES are love, pleasures of friendship and simple life, and the art of poetry. When writings of a number of other Roman poets disappeared after the fall of the Roman empire, Horace's oeuvre survived and influenced deeply Western literature. In his own time Horace could boast that his ARS POETICA was sold on the banks of the Bosphorus, in Spain, in Gaul, and in Africa. " This used to be among my prayers - a piece of land not so very large, which would contain a garden, and near the house a spring of ever-flowing water, and beyond these a bit of wood." Quintus Horatius Flaccus - known in the English-speaking world as Horace - was born at Venusia (Venosa). His father was a former slave, who had worked as a tax collector. As a businessman he earned enough money to buy a small estate and educate the future poet in Rome. Later Horace expressed his deep gratitude to his father who not only supervised his early education but also influenced his moral training. When Horace about 19-years old, he continued his studies of philosophy in Athens. After Julius Caesar's murder in March 44 B.C., Horace joined Marcus Brutus' army and gained the rank of military tribune. The defeat of Brutus and Cassius at Philippi in 42 B.C. in northern Greece, where also Horace fought a

Theodore Martin, Horace
(1870, external link)
Horace was a Roman poet who lived from 65 to 8 B.C. We call him Horace in English, but to his contemporaries and fellow countrymen he was Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Among his poetry are four books of odes (known in Latin as "carmina"), containing just over one hundred individual poems (103, to be exact). In one of these odes (3.30) Horace bragged that his poetry would live as long as Vestal Virgins climbed the Capitoline Hill in Rome. You won't find any Vestal Virgins in Rome today, but Horace's odes are still read and enjoyed, more than 2000 years after he wrote them. The odes cover a variety of themes. You'll find invitations to dinner, praises of wine, women, and song, descriptions of holiday celebrations, patriotic exhortations, philosophical musings, hymns, and much more. In The Twilight of the Idols , the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche wrote about the odes of Horace: Up to the present I have not obtained from any poet the same artistic delight as was given me from the first by a Horatian ode. In certain languages that which is obtained here cannot even be hoped for. The mosaic of words in which every word, by sound, by position and by meaning, diffuses its force right, left and over the whole, that minimum in the compass and number of signs, that maximum thus realized in their energy,all that is Roman, and if you will believe me, it is noble par excellence. All other poetry becomes somewhat too popular in comparison with it - mere sentimental loquacity.

Horace Greeley
Horace Greeley, the son of a New England farmer and day laborer, was born in Amherst, New Hampshire in February 1811. The economic struggles of his family meant that Greeley received only irregular schooling, which ended when he was fourteen. He then apprenticed to a newspaper editor in Vermont, and found employment as a printer in New York and Pennsylvania. Seeking to improve his prospects, he gathered his possessions and a small amount of money, and in 1831, set out for New York City. The twenty year old Greeley found various jobs, which provided some capital, and in 1834, he founded a weekly literary and news journal, the New Yorker. An omnivorous reader, eager to write as well as edit, Greeley contributed to the journal. It gained an increasing audience and gave him a wide reputation. However, it failed to make money, and Greeley supplemented his income by writing, especially in support of the Whig party. His connections with Thurlow Weed William H. Seward , and other Whigs led, in 1 840, to his editorship of the campaign weekly, the Log Cabin. The paper's circulation rose to about 90,000, and contributed significantly both to William Henry Harrison's victory and Greeley's influence. Greeley also directly participated in the Whig campaign by giving speeches, sitting on committees, and helping to manage the state campaign. In April 1841, Greeley set himself on the path to national prominence and power when he launched the New York Tribune. The Tribune was multifaceted, devoting space to politics, social reform, literary and intellectual endeavors, and news. It was very much Greeley's personal vehicle. An egalitarian and idealist, Greeley espoused a variety of causes. He popularized the communitarian ideas of Fourier, and invested in a Fourier utopian community at Red Bank, New Jersey. He advocated the homestead principle of distributing free government land to settlers, attacked the exploitation of wage labor, denounced monopolies, and opposed capital punishment.
