Excerpt from The Odes of Horace: A Translation and an Exposition
I. The object of this work is to present the results of an investiga tion into the major problems that confront the reader of the Odes of Horace. As a convenient frame for the volume, a literal translation of the text is given, but although it appears, for a reason hereafter indicated, in a form of blank verse (lege solutus), it pretends to be no more than a mere transcript into English of the sense, as I read it, of the original poems to suggest their literary grace is no part of its design.
