A Companion to Horace

N. Gregson G. Davis (editor)



The book features a collection of commissioned interpretive essays by leading scholars in the field of Latin literature covering the entire generic range of works produced by Horace. In this volume Davis, the Andrew W. Mellon Research Professor of the Humanities and Classical Studies, compiled essays that challenge, rather than just summarize, conventional views of Homer's work and influence, that consider Horace’s debt to his Greek predecessors, and that treat the reception of Horace from contemporary theoretical perspectives.
