Horace's book of Epodes consists of seventeen poems in different versions of the iambus, the meter traditionally associated with lampoon. David Mankin's introduction and commentary examines all aspects of Horace's relationship with his models and of the technical accomplishment of his verse, and places the Epodes firmly in their literary and historical context while also giving help with linguistic problems. Students and scholars alike will welcome this commentary, the only one providing a full and detailed interpretation in English.The first commentary on the Epodes providing a full and detailed interpretation in EnglishThis commentary will make it possible for students to study the Epodes in classIt incorporates many new views about the relationship of Horace's poetry to its Greek modelsContentsIntroduction1.
