APPEARANCE AND REALITY IN HORACE'S ODES 3.7-12

S. Thom

Abstract


The artistic principle of contrast is seldom pushed to its limit to the same extent as is
done in the first section of Horace's Odes Book 3. Six sonorous poems in the Alcaic
metre are followed by a second group of poems reflecting such diversity of metre that
they remind the reader of the initial nine Parade Odes.2 Six poems on the "state of the
nation" are followed by a group of poems exclusively concerned with a seemingly
idiosyncratic perspective on individual experience.) Six Roman odes are followed by
a group of poems described by Syndikus as "sehr leichte, scheinbar gewichtlose
Gedichte" (1990:98).
