Et Tu, Brute?

By Harry Mount, Editor of The Oldie and John Davie

The Best Latin Lines Ever

When did Julius Caesar say, 'Veni, vidi, vici'? Why did the poet Horace tell us to 'Carpe diem'?

The answer lies in this funny, moving and sad collection of the greatest Latin lines ever – plus their English translations.

Harry Mount, author of bestseller Amo, Amas, Amat…and All That, and Oxford don John Davie take you back 2,000 years for a ringside seat at the highlights – and lowlights – of Rome and the Roman Empire.

The Last Marchioness. A Portrait of Lindy Dufferin edited by Harry Mount, Oldie editor

Oldie editor, Harry Mount, pays tribute to his godmother, the Marchioness of Dufferin & Ava (1941-2020). Lindy Dufferin was a painter, yoghurt-maker and the entrepreneurial chatelaine of Clandeboye, one of Northern Ireland's most bewitching houses.

Everyone from Van Morrison to Charles III descended on Clandeboye. Among the guests was David Hockney, spotted by Sheridan Dufferin, Lindy’s art-dealer husband, early in the artist’s career.

This moving book – edited by Harry Mount – includes tributes from friends including Van Morrison, Tom Stoppard and David Hockney. With pictures by Lindy Dufferin and David Hockney.
