Originally published in 1922, this book presents a study in poetic word order with illustrations from Horace's Odes, Epodes and the Carmen Saeculare. The understanding of ancient word order is important for the proper comprehension of Classical poetry, especially since the same styles were not preserved in the Romance languages following the adoption of Christianity. This book will be of value to readers of Horace and anyone with an interest in the original performance and understanding of ancient writing.
