Horace Horace's "Epodes" have largely been ignored in the modern era, excepting those with political associations of historical significance. The obscene qualities of some of the poems have repulsed even scholars yet more recently a better understanding of the nature of Iambic poetry has led to a re-evaluation of the "whole" collection. A re-appraisal of the "Epodes" also appears in creative adaptations by recent poets (such as a 2004 collection of poems that relocates the ancient context to a 1950s industrial town).
Clifford Herschel Moore Moore edited Frederic de Forest Allen's 1899 edition of Euripides' "Medea" and his 1902 edition Horace's "Odes and Epodes" (1902), and wrote the textbooks "A First Latin Book" (1903) and "The Elements of Latin" (1906).
Archilochian The name Archilochian is also applied to similar combinations of dactylic and trochaic rhythms elsewhere in Horace ("Epodes" 15, 16, cf. Archilochus fr. 193 West; "Epode" 11, cf. Archilochus fr. 196 West).
Epode In the seven remaining epodes Horace diversified the measures, while retaining the general character of the distich. This group of poems belongs mostly to the early youth of the poet, and displays a truculence and a controversial heat which are absent from his more mature writings. As he was imitating Archilochus in form, he believed himself justified, no doubt, in repeating the sarcastic violence of his fierce model. The curious thing is that these particular poems of Horace, which are really short lyrical satires, have appropriated almost exclusively the name of epodes, although they bear little enough resemblance to the epode of early Greek literature.
Epode The word is now mainly familiar from an experiment of Horace in the second class, for he entitled his fifth book of odes "Epodon liber" or the "Book of Epodes". He says in the course of these poems, that in composing them he was introducing a new form, at least in Latin literature, and that he was imitating the effect of the iambic distichs invented by Archilochus. Accordingly, we find the first ten of these epodes composed in alternate verses of iambic trimeter and iambic dimeter, as at, for example, "Epode" 5.1–2:
Prosody (Latin) Another couplet is formed when a line of dactylic hexameter is followed by a line of iambic dimeter, and this is called the First Pythiambic. The Greek poet Archilochus composed in this form but only fragments remain. Two of Horace's epodes (14 and 15) provide complete examples in Latin. The following couplet introduces his Epode 15:
John Marshall (author) He translated Horace's "Odes", bk. I-IV, "Epodes.",and "Saecular hymn", tr. by Dr. J. Marshall for the Everyman's Library edition of the "Complete Works of Horace" published in 1911, (this edition in its various version is in 1357 libraries according to WorldCat. He also translated Xenophon's "Memorabilia" and "Anabasis",
Horace Horace also crafted elegant hexameter verses ("Satires" and "Epistles") and caustic iambic poetry ("Epodes"). The hexameters are amusing yet serious works, friendly in tone, leading the ancient satirist Persius to comment: "as his friend laughs, Horace slyly puts his finger on his every fault; once let in, he plays about the heartstrings".
Horace William Wordsworth's mature poetry, including the preface to Lyrical Ballads, reveals Horace's influence in its rejection of false ornament and he once expressed "a wish / to meet the shade of Horace...". John Keats echoed the opening of Horace's "Epodes" 14 in the opening lines of "Ode to a Nightingale".
Janus Dousa In 1569 Dousa published his first collection of poems (epigrams, satires, elegies, etc.). A new collection appeared in 1575. This collection contains (among other poems) five "Odae Lugdunenses" on the siege of Leiden. In 1584 a volume of epodes was issued. In 1585 Dousa wrote the "Odae Britannicae". 1586 saw the release of a new book of elegies.
