The Odes of Horace (Johns Hopkins New Translations from Antiquity)

The Odes of Horace (Johns Hopkins New Translations from Antiquity) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Latin poet Horace is, along with his friend Virgil, the most celebrated and influential of the poets of Emperor Augustus's reign. These marvelously constructed poems, with their unswerving clarity of vision and extraordinary range of tone and emotion, have deeply affected the poetry of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Herbert, Marvell, Dryden, Pope, Samuel Johnson, Wordsworth, Frost, Auden, Larkin, and many others, in English and in other languages. David Carne-Ross has said of this translation that Ferry has found an English into which Horace's lyrics will pass with no apparent strain. Grateful readers will appreciate the lucidity and inventiveness of these elegant and judicious versions.

Synopsis:

This groundbreaking new translation of Horace's most widely read collection of poetry is rendered in modern, metrical English verse rather than the more common free verse found in many other translations. Jeffrey H. Kaimowitz adapts the Roman poet's rich and metrically varied poetry to English formal verse, reproducing the works in a way that maintains fidelity to the tone, timbre, and style of the originals while conforming to the rules of English prosody. Each poem is true to the sense and aesthetic pleasure of the Latin and carries with it the dignity, concision, and movement characteristic of Horace's writing.

Kaimowitz presents each translation with annotations, providing the context necessary for understanding and enjoying Horace's work. He also comments on textual instability and explains how he constructed his verse renditions to mirror Horatian Latin.

Horace and The Odes are introduced in lively fashion by noted classicist Ronnie Ancona.
