    The works of Horace (65-8 BCE) reflect not only the politics, arts and religion of Augustan Rome but also more intimate themes of friendship, philosophy, love and sex. In this book about 'one of the very few poets who always leave one feeling wiser, better and more relaxed', fellow-poet Peter Levi reflects on his own enduring affection for Horace, combining personal responses with the insights of scholarship as he discusses key moments from the poems.
