Overview

Die Asthetik der augusteischen Dichtung: Eine Asthetik des Verzichts: Uberlegungen zum Spatwerk des Horaz by Hans-Christian Gunther

Starting from some central texts of Horace's late poetry this book tries to offer a general picture of Horace's poetry, his political poetry and his relationship with his patrons in particular. It offers a large variety of comparative material from modern literature and is aimed not only at classicists, but at students of literature and history in general. All quotations from Greek and Latin texts are translated.
