Rudd worked intensively with Latin literature, especially Roman poetry, and its reception in English literature of the modern age. He wrote books, monographs and articles about works of Cicero, and on the satires of Horace and Juvenal whose work he presented in English translation. This work has been published in two collections (1994, 2005). In addition, he published, in 1994, an autobiographical record of his childhood and youth in Ireland. The Satires of Horace. A Study (1966) Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. The Satires of Horace and Persius.

While Niall Rudd is a renowned classicist, please be aware that this is a translation in which Horace's sometime embrace of homosexual lyric is suppressed. For example, in Book I, Ode 26, Rudd omits the masculine pronoun, which is explicit in the Latin, so that the reader is allowed to assume that Lamia is a woman's name, when, in fact, Horace is writing about a young man.
