in consequence of the missive, GR: Augustan?, penned by Cheryl
My web surfing has turned up the information that the 18th Century in English Literature was called Augustan age because it included self-conscious imitation of Augustan writers Virgil and Horace, although apparently the writers themselves (Pope, Swift, Addison, etc.) were said to be contempuous of the term.
