Original insights into Horace's influential poem.-George A. Kennedy, Paddison professor of classics and professor of comparative literature, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
The influence of Horace's Ars Poetica on literary criticism across the ages has sometimes manifested itself in straightforward and direct ways and sometimes in a subtler, more oblique fashion. This volume offers, for the first time, an anthology of important texts, with accompanying commentary, that illustrate this diverse and significant Horatian influence.
O. B. Hardison, Jr., formerly professor of English at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, was professor of English at Georgetown University from 1984 until his death in 1990. He was the author or editor of many books, including The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics; Disappearing Through the Skylight: Culture and Technology in the Twentieth Century (winner of the 1990 Los Angeles Times nonfiction book prize); Prosody and Purpose in the English Renaissance; Medieval Literary Criticism: Translations and Interpretations; and, with Leon Golden, Classical and Medieval Literary Criticism and Aristotle's Poetics: A Translation and Commentary for Students of Literature (UPF, 1981).
