I have read sections of De bello gallico by Gaius Iulius Caesar. I did really like that work! I have been interested in Caesar and his time from a historic perspective for a long time already. I could easily read more from this book. Then after that I checked out Pro Archia poeta by Marcus Tullius Cicero. I did not like that work. The Latin was both difficult with a lot of unfamiliar words and a generally boring theme! His Orationes is obviously not my thing at all. Instead I have been thinking about maybe reading parts of Carmina by Quintus Horatius Flaccus. Have you read this work by him? What do you think?
