Description

This study investigates the literary programme of Horace's "Odes" as part of the Callimachean tradition's emphasis on brevity, novelty, and refinement, as well as a familiarity with a critical vocabulary, formulated at Rome and mirroring the programmatic imagery and terminology pioneered at Alexandria. It begins with a preliminary analysis of the "Satires", and discusses the "meta-literary" aspects of both the "Satires" and the "Odes".
