Poetry.Translation. A fresh new translation of the Satires of Horace by the poet William Matthews. Stanley Plumly writes, "What is special about Matthews's Horatian Satires is the immediacy of the idiom, the sense of discovery of the actual moment, the quickness of the turn of the line. If we are fools, wisdom and wise words are our only chance. Horace's words, in Matthews' hands, become alive, just-written, and immortal again because they are so new."
