How to Drink: A Classical Guide to the Art of Imbibing
How to Drink features a new translation by Classics professor Michael Fontaine of writings by the Renaissance humanist and poet Vincent Obsopeus (ca. 1498-1539). Obsopeus’s Art of Drinking (1536) was a how-to manual for drinking with pleasure and discrimination, arguing that drinking can be a virtue if done with rules and limits. This new volume from the series Ancient Wisdom for Modern Readers includes the original Latin text on each opposing page.
