Horace Odes III Dulce Periculum: Text, Translation, and Commentary

David West

The three books of Horace's Odes were published in 23 BC and gained him his reputation as the greatest Latin lyric poet. This book provides the Latin text of the third book, together with a translation which attempts to be close to the Latin while catching the flavour of the original. There is also a commentary explaining the poems, which is aimed at students of Latin Literature and Roman history, whether or not they know Latin.
