Synopsis: A Companion to Horace features a collection of commissioned interpretive essays by leading scholars in the field of Latin literature covering the entire generic range of works produced by Horace.

  • Features original essays by a wide range of leading literary scholars
  • Exceeds expectations for the standard handbook by featuring essays that challenge, rather than just summarize, conventional views of Homer's work and influence
  • Considers Horace?s debt to his Greek predecessors
  • Treats the reception of Horace from contemporary theoretical perspectives
  • Offers up-to-date information and illustrations on the archaeological site traditionally identified as Horace's villa in the Sabine countryside

From the Back Cover: Few ancient poets have exerted as profound and enduring an influence on European literature as Horace. As a result of the generous patronage of Maecenas, wealthy friend and confidant to the Emperor Augustus, Horace produced a genre-spanning body of Latin literature that ranged from iambus and satire to odes and literary epistle. Reflecting continual and ongoing reassessments of this timeless Roman poet, A Companion to Horace features a thought-provoking collection of newly-commissioned interpretive essays by leading scholars in the field of Latin literature. With its primary focus on the entire generic range of Horace?s monumental literary achievements -- Epodes, Odes, Satires, Carmen Saeculare, Epistles, and Ars Poetica -- some essays also touch upon salient aspects of the reception of a few of his major works in later European literature. Other essays challenge conventional views of the poet's works and influences to expose readers to the most up-to-date perspectives. English translations are provided by the authors for Latin and Greek passages cited in the text, and there are helpful suggestions for further reading about the issues covered in each essay.

While casting fresh new light on the interpretation and reception of Horace, A Companion to Horace represents an invaluable contribution to the enduring legacy of one of the greatest poets of the Augustan Age of Latin literature.
