Description

A study of Catullus's influence on Horace, this work shows that the earlier poet was probably the important source of inspiration for Horace's "Odes", the later author's magnum opus. By illustrating how Horace often found his own voice even as he acknowledged Catullus's genius, it guides us to an appreciation of the earlier poet as well.

Texte du rabat

"This is a book that has long been needed and I can't think of anyone better to have written it than Michael Putnam. For any scholar working on either Horace or Catullus, this book will be essential reading. Putnam's argument about the extent of their 'poetic interplay' is not only convincing, but also quite astonishing."--Ronnie Ancona, Hunter College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York "Exceptionally fluent. There is no other book-length study on this subject. Putnam makes a convincing case for the central role Catullus plays in Horace's lyric poetry."--Ortwin Knorr, Willamette University
