Works of Ausonius by Decimus Magnus Ausonius
Book DescriptionAusonius of Bordeaux, poet, professor, and statesman, whose long life almost spanned the fourth century AD, lived at a time of great cultural and political change, and was for many years, as an imperial courtier, closely involved in the administration of the Roman Empire. A prolific and original writer, Ausonius covers an astonishing stylistic range in his many and varied poems, from an elaborate description of the river Moselle to after-dinner diversions, from scurrilous epigrams to the stately verses in which he proclaims his Christian beliefs or his eminence as consul. This revised text of Ausonius' complete works, with over a hundred new emendations, is followed by a detailed commentary. Four introductory chapters consider the nature of Ausonius' poetry, his life and career, his influence, and the manuscripts of his works.

The surviving works of Ausonius (c. 310 c. 395 CE) include much poetry, notably "The Daily Round" and "The Moselle." There is also an address of thanks to Gratian for the consulship. The stated aim of "Eucharisticus" by Paulinus Pellaeus (376 after 459 CE) is to give thanks for the guidance of providence in its author s life.
