These marvelously constructed poems with their unswerving clarity of vision and their extraordinary range of tone and emotion have deeply affected the poetry of Shakespeare, Ben Jonson, Herbert, Dryden, Marvell, Pope, Samuel Johnson, Wordsworth, Frost, Larkin, Auden, and many others, in English and in other languages.David Ferry, the acclaimed poet and translator of Gilgamesh, has made an inspired translation of the complete Odes of Horace, one that conveys the wit, ardor and sublimity of the original with a music of all its own.Available as an ebook for the first time, this edition includes only the English language translation of the Odes.

As Rosanna Warren noted about Ferrys work in The Threepenny Review, We finally have an English Horace whose rhythmical subtlety and variety do justice to the Latin poets own inventiveness, in which emotion rises from the motion of the verse . . . To sense the achievement, one has to read the collection as a whole . . . and they can take ones breath away even as they continue breathing.
