A Commentary on Horace Odes Book II

£24.99

Product description

"The first three books of Horace's Odes were issued together, apparently in the latter part of 23 BC. The second book, however, has a coherence of its own in terms of subject matter, tone of voice, and arrangement. In particular there is a predominance of poems concerned with philosophy, with conduct, and with friendship. This commentary provides the reader with the background knowledge of conventional forms and topics needed to appreciate fully every aspect of the poems. In particular word-play, literary parallels, and stylistic nuances are highlighted and discussed."
This hardback copy is in good condition. The burgundy boards look as new with gilt lettering to the spine. The outside edges of the leaves have some dust marks but otherwise the pages are clean and the binding is tight. The dust jacket has more wear with some dirt marks, creases and rubbing to some of the edges.
