His desire in this study was to remove from the poems of Horace some of the crusts with which the industry of many centuries has overlaid them and to enable a sympathetic reader to listen as often as possible to the voice of the poet and as seldom as possible to his learned patrons.

His scholarly, rather idiosyncratic companion has since been described as indispensable to a full understanding of Horace. The book consists largely of interpretations of Horaces writings, and outlines the history of the poets work from his earliest epodes and satires to his most mature odes. By way of biographical introduction, the first chapter offers at commentary on Suetonius Vita Horati. Quotation in Latin.
