9780198721659: Horace Odes III Dulce Periculum: Text, Translation, and Commentary

The three books of Horace's Odes were published in 23 BC and gained him his reputation as the greatest Latin lyric poet. This book provides the Latin text (from the Oxford Classical Text series) of the third book together with a new translation by David West which attempts to be close to the Latin while catching the flavour of the original. There is also a commentary which explains the poems aimed at students of Latin literature and Roman history, whether or not they know Latin.

David West is Professor Emeritus of Latin at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne

Review:


"An excellent book which will interest students of literature, historians, and classicists alike. It is well-written, insightful, and the fruit of many years of scholarship. Those interested in further study will find ample resources in the bibliography. West is to be commended for his fine work."--Classical Outlook

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The aim of this book is to provide a translation and commentary which will help newcomers to Horace, whether or not they know Latin, to understand how the poetry works. This third book of Odes begins with the Roman odes in praise of Augustus, the ruthless politician who had won control over the whole known world. These poems should, therefore, interest historians as poetic presentations of an ideology, and students of literature as the work of a man who found ways of praising while asserting his independence. Part of his strategy is to follow the political odes with an array of poems on love, friendship, country life, religion, and on poetry, all of them filled with delight in life and a unique sense of humour.
