But there was an earlier Latin literature, a literature truly Latin, which has wholly perished, which had, indeed almost wholly perished long before those whom we are in the habit of regarding as the greatest Latin writers were born.

A stirring teacher of Roman history, and of the virtues of courage, sacrifice, and determination.
????????????????????????
This is a very deeply disappointing edition of a great classic. The Lays of Ancient Rome themselves are fantastic---early Victorian tales of heroism and self-sacrifice; especially "Horatius at the Bridge" is deeply moving. But the Leopold Classic Library did a pathetic job printing it. They started with a copy that had somebody's old marks at points, underlining just enough words to be annoying. Then they did an indifferent scan. And followed it up by LEAVING PAGES OUT (!!), including key points of action in the poems.

Great historical book. Some of the most famous quotes are in here. "And how can a man die better than facing fearful odds for the ashes of his fathers, and the temples of his gods.". Very strong stories.

For me it was Mrs. Holder, my Latin Teacher. It was the height of the drought , sand was everywhere and in that hot dusty building on the plains of West Texas we discovered Horatius. It was magic.
"Then out spake brave Horatius
The Captain of the Gate
To every man upon this earth death cometh soon or late..."
All of us became lost in the swirling battle of ancient Rome and learned how one man, willing to give his life, can change the world.

This is a very good presentation and explanation of old poetic styles used to describe history

"Then Romans in Rome's Quarrel, Spared neither Land nor Gold, nor Son nor Wife, nor Limb nor Life, in the Brave Days of Old."

"Was none who would be foremost to lead such dire attack; but those behind cried, 'Forward!' and those before cried, 'Back!' And backward now and forward wavers the deep array; and on the tossing sea of steel, to and frow the standards reel; and the victorious trumpet-peal dies fitfully away."

Great poetry like this, when the meanest poetry was reckoned greater than the greatest prose, doesn't show its head anymore. Lord Macaulay was a master, not only because as a Baron he had the leisure to cultivate his talent, but because he was also a politician and a moralist, and was convinced that art should be just as much uplifting and moralizing as it was beautiful.

Between Macaulay and Milton, a young person can grasp the scope and beauty of this much-diminished art form.
