Ars Poetica

by Quintus Horatius Flaccus
'"Ars Poetica", or "The Art of Poetry", is a poem written by Horace c. 19 BC, in which he advises poets on the art of writing poetry and drama. The Ars Poetica has exercised a great influence in later ages on European literature, notably on French drama and has inspired poets and authors since it was written.
