Décimo Magno Ausonio (h. 310-393 d.C.) fue el más striking poeta latino de l. a. segunda mitad del siglo IV, considerado último renacimiento de l. a. literatura antigua, tras el yermo cultural que acompaña l. a. hindrance del siglo III y antes de l. a. desintegración del Imperio de Occidente en los angeles centuria posterior. Nacido en Burdigala (Burdeos), se educó en esta ciudad y en Tolosa; en l. a. primera enseñó retórica durante treinta años, hasta que se le encomendó l. a. tutoría del futuro emperador Graciano, quien al asumir el mando le nombró prefecto y cónsul de las provincias galas. Así pues, es un exponente de movilidad social, pues ascendió desde una posición de relieve sólo provincial a l. a. de miembro influyente en los angeles corte imperial.
Ausonio cultivó una gran variedad de metros y registros, en los que dio muestras de su maestría. Sus mejores composiciones son l. a. Parentalia, breve relato de los angeles vida y el carácter de veinte hombres y mujeres de su familia, los angeles Commemoratio professorum Burdigalensium, en el que describe l. a. personalidad y l. a. trayectoria de veintiséis profesores de Burdeos, l. a. Ephemeresis, sobre su vida cotidiana, los siete poemas sobre los angeles esclava germana Bisula, que recibió como botínde guerra, las cartas en verso a su protegido y amigo Paulino de Nola, el panegírico Mosella y gran cantidad de epigramas virtuosos y eruditos.
Ausonio fue cristiano durante l. a. mayor parte de su vida, pero no es los angeles suya los angeles obra de un poeta cristiano: al decir de un estudioso, es un cristiano de imaginación pagana y temperamento epicúreo. Su obra literaria pone de manifiesto una memoria prodigiosa, facilidad para l. a. versificación, un optimismo alegre y amable y renuencia a tratar los aspectos desagradables y más serios de los angeles vida; los angeles suya es una poesía clara y elegante, muy familiarizada con l. a. tradición clásica, pero con una voz propia.
