Two thousand years after his death Horace is still recognised as
a unique poet, having exerted marked influence on later European
literature. This collection, first published in 1973, explores the
different aspects of Horace's poetic achievement in his main works:
the "Odes," "Epistles," " Satires "and "Ars Poetica."
The essays, written by internationally-known scholars, include a
discussion of the three worlds of the "Satires," and a study of
Horace's poetic craft in the "Odes" - his greatest technical
accomplishment. The final chapter is devoted entirely to Horace's
reputation in England up to the seventeenth century as 'The Best of
Lyrick Poets', and concentrates on the many English translations
which he inspired. The expert criticism is illustrated throughout
by English translations from the original Latin texts. "
Horace "will appeal to students and scholars of Latin poetry
alike, as well as to those interested in the reception of classical
literature throughout European history."
