This is by far the most detailed commentary yet on Horace's Epodes. The line-by-line commentary on each epode is prefaced by a substantial interpretative essay which offers a reading of that poem and synthesizes existing scholarship. These essays, the first of their kind, will provide essential critical orientation to undergraduates approaching the Epode-book for the first time.

About the Author:


Lindsay C. Watson is Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Sydney, Australia

Review:


"With this massive commentary on 17 of Horace's earlier, less-celebrated poems, Watson puts series students of the Roman poet forever in his debt; no one need ever again attempt a commentary on this scale of this particular collection of poetry.... The combination of enormous erudition and a fine of literary sensibility makes Watson's book a triumph of Horatian scholarship.... Professional classicists will be most grateful for this indispensable new scholarly tool. Essential."--Choice

Book Depository hard to find
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2003. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is by far the most detailed commentary yet on Horace's Epodes. The line-by-line commentary on each epode is prefaced by a substantial interpretative essay which offers a reading of that poem and synthesises existing scholarship. These essays, the first of their kind, will provide essential critical orientation to undergraduates approaching the Epode-book for the first time. Moreover, the scale and density of the commentary will make it aninvaluable resource for scholars of Latin poetry. A particular feature is the first in-depth treatment of the two lengthy magical Epodes 5 and 17. The author draws extensively on ancient magical texts preserved on papyrus and lead, as well as the recent flood of publications on Greek and Roman magic, to cast light oncountless details in these epodes which reveal a marked familiarity on Horace's part with authentic magical belief and practice.
