Catherine KeaneThis work will be a welcome addition to course reading lists, as it does justice to Horace's misleadingly simple verse. Svarlien's rhythmic lines go down lightly and easily—as he renders Horace's phrase, he 'writes like people talk,' yet it is a talk that jars and provokes. Mankin's concise and highly readable notes will be as useful to scholars as to new readers of Horace: they are packed with cultural background, stylistic commentary, useful cross-references, and appealing suggestions on interpretation.
