Born into slavery, Frederick Douglass became a prominent social reformer, abolitionist, orator and statesman, who led an intriguing life. After escaping from slavery in Maryland, he became a national leader of the abolitionist movement in Massachusetts and New York, winning acclaim for his outstanding ability as an orator. Douglass wrote three autobiographies, chronicling his life’s experiences as a slave and social reformer, as well as penning incisive antislavery writing.

The Roman historian Velleius Paterculus lived during the reigns of Augustus and Tiberius, serving as a military tribune and later as a cavalry officer and legatus in Germany and Pannonia. Written in a highly rhetorical style, his ‘Compendium of Roman History’ is a summary of Roman history from the mythical fall of Troy to AD 29. As Paterculus approaches his own times, he becomes much fuller in his treatment of history, especially dealing with the years between the death of Julius Caesar in 44 BC and Augustus in 14. He is generally trustworthy in his statements of individual facts, serving as a courtly annalist and providing a unique window into this important time of Roman history. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Paterculus’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.

Regarded as one of the Fireside Poets, John Greenleaf Whittier was influenced by the poetry of Robert Burns and his early works reveal a Romantic strain. In later years, Whittier became an eloquent advocate of justice, tolerance, and liberal humanitarianism. The lofty spiritual and moral values he proclaimed earned him the title of “America’s finest religious poet” and many of his poems are still sung as church hymns. Whittier dedicated twenty years of his life to the abolitionist cause and he is chiefly remembered today for his powerful and stirring anti-slavery writings. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting.

The most famous poet of the Edo period in Japan, Matsuo Basho was of samurai descent and a Zen Buddhist, who became a master of haiku. He helped create a new style of poetry, capturing the meaning of the world into simple poetry. His work is celebrated for contrasting two separate experiences, reflecting the environment and emotions of a single moment, taken directly from nature. Haiku is a short form of poetry, composed of three phrases and 17 syllables. It has been employed by Basho and his fellow haikuists throughout the last five hundred years to convey an extraordinary depth of expression and ornate beauty. The Delphi Poets Series offers readers the works of literature’s finest poets, with superior formatting.

Famous for his 1875 poem ‘Invictus’, the late Victorian author W. E. Henley was an influential poet, critic and editor, whose verses demonstrate some of the earliest examples of free verse in English literature. His works are noted for their experimental approach to form, abrasive narrative shifts and internal monologue, while at times tackling controversial subject matter. A fixture of London literary circles, the one-legged Henley served as the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Long John Silver.

The first great artist of the Quattrocento period of the Italian Renaissance, Masaccio would have an incredible impact on the course of Western art, in spite of his untimely death at the age of twenty-six. He is noted for his skill in imitating nature, recreating lifelike figures and his unprecedented use of chiaroscuro and three-dimensionality.

Florus, the author of ‘Epitome of Roman History’, was reportedly born in Africa and lived in Rome during Hadrian’s time. He wrote in a concise and pointed rhetorical style, providing a summary of Roman history and wars in two books in order to show the greatness and decline of Roman morals, from the Founding of Rome to Augustus’ reign. A collection of short poems ascribed to a ‘Florus’ also survives from antiquity, though whether it was the same person as the ‘Epitome’ remains uncertain. Both texts are provided in this edition of ‘Florus’.
