While Niall Rudd is a renowned classicist, please be aware that this is a translation in which Horace's sometime embrace of homosexual lyric is suppressed. For example, in Book I, Ode 26, Rudd omits the masculine pronoun, which is explicit in the Latin, so that the reader is allowed to assume that Lamia is a woman's name, when, in fact, Horace is writing about a young man.
I decry this Bowdlerization.

Format: Hardcover
English has its own charms, and I like reading English renderings of my favourite Latin and Greek classics. Horace is amazing. He and Vergil sort of "are" Latin literature. Knowing your Horace and Vergil was what made you an educated Roman back then. It is a very poetic kind of prose that the translator uses for his English version here. It is very nice - it captures the wonder-filled sentiment toward his world of the Latin author well. It is quite exotic and imagination engendering reading. If you want to widen your appreciation for life, this work helps you to do so.

Very readable translation of Horace, good reading for a winter evening. The famous phrase carpe diem (seize the day or pluck the day) is from one of Horace's odes, in this book.
