Already as a student Gezelle was very creative. In this book he made drawings and a funny ode dedicated to Horace with a drinking problem.
Gezelle used this edition of Horace's Odes from 1714 as a student at the Minor Seminary in Roeselare. Gezelle made notes and remarkable pencil drawings in this book. It also is quite unique that he wrote his own funny ode in it: Horatius de romaan (Horace, the Roman). In this ode Horace has a drinking problem.
