This book explores the whole range of the output of an exceptionally versatile and innovative poet, from the Epodes to the literary-critical Epistles. Distinguished scholars of diverse background and interests introduce readers to a variety of critical approaches to Horace and to Latin poetry. Close attention is paid throughout to the actual text of Horace, with many of the chapters focusing on reading a single poem. These close readings are then situated in a number of different political, philosophical and historical contexts. The book sheds light not only on Horace but on the general problems confronting Latinists in the study of Augustan poetry, and it will be of value to a wide range of upper-level Latin students and scholars.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The most radical essay in Traditions and Contexts in the Poetry of Horace is Alan Griffith's 'The Odes: Just Where Do You Draw the Line': the evidence he offers is well argued ...' Quadrant
'... stimulating collection of essays ... many valuable insights.' Andrea Cucchuarelli, University of Siena-Arezzo
"If a library can buy only one new book on Horace, this should be that book. Highly recommended." Choice
"Woodman and Feeney have succeeded admirably...Scholars and advanced students will find in this collection of essays a stimulating reminder that poetry, like all language, is situated both in the world of definite time and place and in the universe of poetry and other literature." - Lee T. Pearcy, The Episcopal Academy, Merion, PA
