Description

Horace's book of Epodes consists of seventeen poems in different versions of the iambus, the meter traditionally associated with lampoon. David Mankin's introduction and commentary examines all aspects of Horace's relationship with his models and of the technical accomplishment of his verse, and places the Epodes firmly in their literary and historical context while also giving help with linguistic problems. Students and scholars alike will welcome this commentary, the only one providing a full and detailed interpretation in English.
