Abstract:

Timeless meditations on the subjects of wine, parties, birthdays, love, and friendship, Horace's Odes, in the words of classicist Donald Carne-Ross, make the "commonplace notable, even luminous." This edition reproduces the highly lauded translation by James Michie. "For almost forty years," poet and literary critic John Hollander notes, "James Michie's brilliant translations of Horace have remained fresh as well as strong, and responsive to the varying lights and darks of the originals. It is a pleasure to have them newly available."--Publisher description.
