Overview

Volume V of the collected poetry publishes Smart's verse translation of Horace for the first time since 1767. Made in the prodigiously creative years between his release from the madhouse and his death, the translation now emerges as testimony to Smart's tireless creativity and poetic energy, and as a significant contribution to the present reappraisal of Horace's influence on English literature.
