A Companion to Horace 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.

  • Exceeds expectations for the standard handbook by featuring essays that challenge, rather than just summarize, conventional views of Homer's work and influence
  • Considers Horace's debt to his Greek predecessors
  • Treats the reception of Horace from contemporary theoretical perspectives
  • Offers up-to-date information and illustrations on the archaeological site traditionally identified as Horace's villa in the Sabine countryside
