Om boka

Horace

This book sets out to give a full and authoritative survey of the scholarly literature on the Roman poet Horace (65-8 BC), a central figure in Latin literature and Western culture, concentrating on the period since 1957. It begins with a brief survey of key resources, focusing especially on material available online, and then looks at the overall shape of Horace's poetic career. The main chapters cover Horace's works chronologically, dividing them into early, central and late periods and thus echoing the trajectory of his poetic career. The final two chapters look at the poet's style and its variations across different genres, and at the extensive reception of Horace's work in Western European literature. This is followed by a full bibliography.
