The Satires of Horace. A study.
Cambridge at the University Press, Cambridge, 1966. XI,317p. Cloth wrps. 'For each Satire there is an exposition of argument and structure illustrated by pieces of either idiomatic translation or paraphrase, a description of literary, historical, and social background, and comments on the quality of the poem. (...) This happy blend of historical scholarship and literary criticism is aimed at a wide audience. It should afford profit and pleasure to students of the classical background to English literature as well as to students of Latin and to professional classical scholars.' (MICHAEL COFFEY in The Classical Review (New Series), 1967, p.291-93). From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott.
