From Ben Jonson and Alexander Pope, through to W.H. Auden and Robert Frost, the works of both Horace and Persius have had a major influence on Western literature. This text features their amusing treatment of man's perennial enslavement to money, power, glory and sex.

Persius was a native of Etruria and was educated in Rome, where he became Lucan's friend. He wrote six satires in a somewhat contorted style, which inculcate Stoic morality. His sanity and wit have direct appeal.
