Perceptions of Horace book.

Perceptions of Horace book. Throughout his work, the Roman poet Horace displays many, sometimes.

His Odes are widely thought his most enduring works, yet he also wrote his scurrilous Epodes . Luke Houghton and Maria Wyke (ed., Perceptions of Horace: A Roman Poet and His Readers (Cambridge University Press, 2009)

His Odes are widely thought his most enduring works, yet he also wrote his scurrilous Epodes, some philosophical Epistles and broad Satires. He’s influenced poets ever since, including those such as Wilfred Owen who rejected his line: ‘dulce et decorum est pro patria mori’., Perceptions of Horace: A Roman Poet and His Readers (Cambridge University Press, 2009). Llewelyn Morgan, Musa Pedestris: Metre and Meaning in Roman Verse (Oxford University Press, 2010). Henry Steele Commager, The Odes of Horace: A Critical Study (University of Oklahoma Press, 1962).

More troublesome for me-when approaching this collection as a book-is its unevenness in tone and scope, and its overlap with two recent publications on Horace, the two Companions produced by Cambridge (2007) and Blackwell (2010)

Throughout his work, the Roman poet Horace displays many, sometimes conflicting, faces: these include dutiful son, expert lover, gentleman farmer, man about town, outsider, poet laureate, sharp satirist and measured moraliser. This book features a wide array of essays by an international team of scholars from a number of different academic disciplines, each one shedding new light on aspects of Horace's poetry and its later reception in literature, art and scholarship from antiquity to the present day. In particular, the collection seeks to investigate the fortunes of 'Horace' both as a literary personality and as a uniquely varied textual corpus of enormous importance to western culture. The poems shape an author to suit his poetic aims; readers reshape that author to suit their own aesthetic, social and political needs. Studying these various versions of Horace and their interaction illuminates the author, his poetry and his readers.
