Horace's "Ars Poetica": Family, Friendship, and the Art of Living (Book)
Title: Horace's "Ars Poetica": Family, Friendship, and the Art of Living
Author: Jennifer Ferriss-Hill
Editor: Jessica Yao, Robert Tempio
Abstract: Horace's "Ars Poetica": Family, Friendship, and the Art of Living, offers a reading of a Horatian poem that has been read and taught continuously for over two millennia. Arguing that the poem's contents are contained in the words of its opening lines, Ferriss-Hill shows how Horace's concern with the human, with the Piso family, with friendship, laughter, and criticism, and with writing as an activity parallel to living run the entire length of the work.
