A Commentary on Horace: Odes Book III

R. G. M. Nisbet and Niall Rudd

This Commentary takes critical account of recent writing on the Odes. It deals with detailed questions of interpretation, and shows how Horace combined the tact of a court-poet with a humane individualism, and how he wrote within a literary tradition without losing a highly personal voice.
