Horace's Odes are among the most popular and the most misunderstood of ancient writings. In this new paperback edition, the authors discuss each ode against its Greek and Roman background to ensure a clearer understanding of its classical and scholarly nature. The commentary includes a large number of parallel passages--showing how Horace plays new variations on old themes--sections on chronology and meter, and a select bibliography for each ode.
