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.

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