The subject of this entertaining and readable study is Anthony Alsop (d. 1726), the author of elegant and brilliantly witty Latin odes in the manner of Horace. His topics were contemporary: politics, scandal, drinking, sex. His circle of friends included some of the leading churchmen, doctors, and scientists of the age, and they were deeply involved in Jacobite activity. Dr Money places Alsop's work in the context of a long tradition of British Latin, from the sixteenth to the twentieth century - a tradition embraced by the likes of Milton, Marvell, and Pope. The full text of Alsop's Latin and English works is printed in the second part of the volume, allowing readers to study for themselves this fascinating author. Dr Money has provided an English translation of all the Latin. This is the first in a select series of monographs by British Academy Postdoctoral Fellows.
