THE EPODES OF HORACE AND A ROMAN POETRY BOOK

Th e article examines the Epode book by Horace as a poetry collection. It is compared with other collections by Horace and the poets of the same period. As this sample of 17 iambic pieces has no traditional features used by poets while composing their poetry books (e. g. opening and concluding pieces, round number of pieces, metrical variatio), the author supposes that these poems were not published at once in the thirties BC, but later, the absence of formal composition being a sign of juvenilia.
