    Friend of Virgil
    He was short, fat and wimpy.
    He was a critical person.
    He had issues with authority.
    He deserted Brutus’ army at the Battle of Philippi.
    His father was a freed slave who scrimped and saved to get him a good education.
    When he got back from the war, his father was dead, and the Empire had seized his family property.
    He is known for his good-humored satire.
    Queen Elizabeth I liked his poems and translated them into English.
