The Lays of Ancient Rome comprises four narrative poems composed by Macaulay - Horatius, The Battle of Lake Regillus, Virginia, and The Prophecy of Capys - recalling popular episodes from Roman historical-legends that were strongly moral in tone. To these are added two poems dealing with more recent European history, "Ivry" and "The Armada."
