A Companion to Horace features a collection of commissioned interpretive essays by leading scholars in the field of Latin literature covering the entire generic range of works produced by Horace.
* Features original essays by a wide range of leading literary scholars
* Exceeds expectations for the standard handbook by featuring essays that challenge, rather than just summarize, conventional views of Homer's work and influence
* Considers Horace's debt to his Greek predecessors
* Treats the reception of Horace from contemporary theoretical perspectives
* Offers up-to-date information and illustrations on the archaeological site traditionally identified as Horace's villa in the Sabine countryside

"Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty." (Choice, 1 March 2011)

"This is a fine and well-organised work that every Horatian scholar will need to consult, and which students of Horace and colleagues from non-classical disciplines will also find useful". (Bmcreview, 17 January 2011)

"These essays are not simply summaries of earlier work, but raise new questions about Horace, making this much more than a reference work. Each essay has suggestions for further reading and there is also a comprehensive bibliography." ( Book News Inc, November 2010)

Gregson Davis is Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Professor of Classics and Comparative Literature at Duke University. His publications include Polyhymnia: The Rhetoric of Horatian Lyric Discourse (1984) and Aimé Cesairé (1997).
