Homage to Horace by S. J. Harrison
Book DescriptionThis book combines one of the most famous names in Latin literature, the Roman poet Horace, with the creme de la creme of contemporary international classical scholarship. The seventeen brand new pieces have been brought together to celebrate the bimillenary of the poet's death, and range from detailed treatments of particular poems to general issues about Horace's literary techniques, themes, biography, and reception in later times. An introduction sets the book in the context of contemporary scholarship on the poet.

Generic Enrichment in Vergil and Horace, Paperback (March 2011)» View all books by S. J. Harrison
Why did the years c.39-19 BC in Rome produce such a rich range of complex poetical texts, above all in the work of Vergil and Horace? S. J. Harrison argues that a vital aspect of this literary flourishing was generic enrichment, the interaction of different poetic genres, and illustrates this by analysis of key passages in the two poets' works.
