Horace Books, Horace poetry book Horace Odes 3 Authors: Professor Emeritus of Latin David West, Horace, Quintus Horatius Flaccus, David West
Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand
Published Date: 2002
Categories: Literary Criticism
The aim of this book is to provide a translation and commentary which will help newcomers to Horace, whether or not they know Latin, to understand how the poetry works. This third book of Odes begins with the 'Roman odes' in praise of Augustus, the ruthless politician who had won control overthe whole known world. These poems should, therefore, interest historians as poetic presentations of an ideology, and students of literature as the work of a man who found ways of praising while asserting his independence. Part of his strategy is to follow the political odes with an array of poemson love, friendship, country life, religion, and on poetry, all of them filled with delight in life and a unique sense of humour.

Horace Books, Horace poetry book Horace on Poetry Authors: Prof C O Brink, C. O. Brink, Horace, Quintus Horatius Flaccus
Publisher: CUP Archive
Published Date: 1963
Categories: History
Originally published in 1982, this is the culminating volume in Professor Brink's great study of Horace's critical writings. The book contains a full edition of the Letters to Augustus and Florus, presented on the same lines as that of the Ars Poetica in the preceding volume. The edition is followed by a very detailed commentary which seeks to justify his text of the poems, and on this basis leads to an assessment of style and subject matter in the two epistles. In the second half an attempt is made to unravel the complexities of Horace's mode of composition and to determine the scope of the critical epistles against the background of Augustan poetry. The complete three-volume commentary constitutes one of the fullest scholarly commentaries on Horace's critical writing. It will continue to be of great value to all with an interest in this much-debated subject.

Elizabeth Stoddard Poem
The Wolf-Tamer
 by Elizabeth Stoddard

Through the gorge of snow we go,
Tracking, tramping soft and slow,
With our paws and sheathed claws,
So we swing along the snow,
Crowding, crouching to your pipes-
Shining serpents! Well you know,
When your lips shall cease to blow
Airs that lure us through the snow,
