Housman’s Manilius

  • Chapter

Abstract

‘LET us now praise famous men!’ cries the author of Ecclesiasticus and a commendation of this practice, Clarorum virorum facta moresque posteris tradere, constitutes the exordium of Tacitus’s Agricola: it is a good thing that the deeds and ways of famous men should not be extinguished with their mortal lives but be recorded, so that they may continue to inspire those born after them.
