A great Latin lyric poet; born at Venusia, in southern Italy, Dec. 8, B. C. 65; died at Rome, Nov. 27, B. C. 8. His writings, in the order of their production, are: The "Satires", or as the poet himself called them, "Talks" (Sermones), eighteen in number, and written in hexameter verse; "Epodes", a collection of lyric poems in iambic and composite metres; "Odes", his most exquisite works, and the delight of scholars ever since they were written; "Epistles", in hexameter verse, brilliant in wit, perfect in melody, replete with workaday wisdom,-among them is the "Epistle to the Pisos", or "The Art of Poetry", as it has been aptly called.
