Horace’s first book of Epistles in which the ancient poet contemplates his relationship with his patron Maecenas. The English Renaissance dramatist and poet Ben Jonson () shared many similarities with Horace. Like Horace, Jonson came from humble origins, as . Diaper also tried his hand at translation, producing an "imitation" of the seventeenth epistle of the first book of Horace and a version of part of the fourth book of Quillet's Callipaedia. His major work of translation is a rendering of the first two of the five books of the Halieutica, a didactic poem on sea-fishing by the Greek poet Oppian.

  An important feature of the book is the detailed comparison with other eighteenth-century views of Horace. Two chapters on the interpretation of Horace in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries highlight the power and originality of Pope's : Frank Stack. The First Epistle of the Second Book of Horace, imitated. Casually suggested by Bolingbroke in the course of conversation, and calling themselves an imitation, these "satires and epistles" are the most original of Pope's writings, and the most natural and spontaneous outcome of his genius. These pieces, nine in number, including a Prologue.

Alexander Pope (21 May – 30 May ) is regarded as one of the greatest English poets, and the foremost poet of the early eighteenth century. He is best known for his satirical and discursive poetry, including The Rape of the Lock, The Dunciad, and An Essay on Criticism, as well as for his translation of Shakespeare, Pope is the second-most quoted writer in the English.   Horace's Eighteenth Epistle, addressed to Lollius, takes as its subject the complex position of what might be called the lesser amicus. While the epistle has received critical attention for its overt personal advice and general statements about amicitia,(1) a sophisticated subtext that reveals a larger historical dimension has never been fully explored.
