A stirring and horrifying depiction of compromised morality at the highest levels of state. When Horatius, a Roman general, is asked to kill in the name of his country, he finds himself faced with a choice between patriotism, friendship, and family. Written in 1640 by Pierre Corneille (author of The Liar), Horace sheds light on the brutalities justified in the name of country, whether ancient Rome, Louis XIV’s France, or today.
