Through the analysis of individual love poems and groups of poems as well as through the representation of thematic and compositional connections of the love theme with other cardinal themes, this work opens up a new perspective on Horace s’ first collection of odes. Love becomes identifiable as the center of poetry, its poetic functionalization leads to a reassessment of the relationship between Horace and Augustus. Manifold evidence of relationships between individual poems allows new insight into the homogeneous structure of the collection as a whole.

Horace and the Gift Economy of Patronage

"In this very substantial contribution to Horatian scholarship, Bowditch focuses on the Roman patronage system, of which Horace was a notable beneficiary. Passing over the early years of the 30s BCE, when Maecenas first befriended Horace and introduced him into his privileged circle of political and literary associates in Rome, Bowditch concentrates on the decisive step in the relationship of the two when Maecenas gave Horace the Sabine Farm in the hill region beyond Tibur (modern Tivoli). Bowditch helps us view the complex significance of this 'gift' through a dazzling array of theoretical material from modern anthropological research into Greek, Roman, and North American Indian prehistory, drawn also from the disputed views on Roman patronage and from postmodern theories about the roles of writer and audiences in literature. . . . Bowditch's versatile interpretations of these Epistles, the most ingenious contribution of this valuable study, will offer a challenge for some time to future readers and scholars."— William S. Anderson, author/editor of Why Horace? : A Collection of Interpretations

Horace's Odes have a surface translucency that belies their rhetorical sophistication. Gregson Davis brings together recent trends in the study of Augustan poetry and critical theory and deftly applies them to individual poems. Exploring four rhetorical strategies—what he calls modes of assimilation, authentication, consolation, and praise and dispraise—Davis produces enlightening, new interpretations of this classic work. Polyhymnia, named after one of the Muses invoked in Horace's opening poem, revises the common image of Horace as a complacent, uncomplicated, and basically superficial singer. Focusing on the artistic persona—the lyric "self" that is constituted in the text—Davis explores how the lyric speaker constructs subtle "arguments" whose building-blocks are topoi, recurrent motifs, and generic conventions. By examining the substructure of lyric argument in groupings of poems sharing similar strategies, the author discloses the major principles that inform Horatian lyric composition.
