Abstract:

"The odes of Horace are the cornerstone of lyric poetry in the Western world. Their subtlety of tone and brilliance of technique have often proved elusive, especially when - as has usually been the case - a single translator ventures to maneuver through Horace's infinite variety. Now for the first time, leading poets from America, England, and Ireland have collaborated to bring all 103 odes into English in a series of new translations that dazzle as poems while also illuminating the imagination of one of literary history's towering figures." "The thirty-five contemporary poets assembled in this volume include nine winners of the Pulitzer prize for poetry as well as four former U. S. Poet Laureates. Their translations, while faithful to the Latin, dramatize how the poets, each in his or her own way, have engaged Horace in a spirited encounter across time."--BOOK JACKET.
