Horace as a nature poet
Metadata[+] Show full item record
In order to be called a true poet of nature, one must possess a deep appreciation and love for the natural world, and the ability to express this feeling in beautiful and appropriate verse. The men who have attained fame in this department of poetry differ in many respects, but they all have those qualities in common. The purpose of this discussion is to show that Horace is worthy of being called a true nature poet, and deserves the fame he has won. Of course his genius expressed itself in other ways also, but we are concerned with his feeling for nature, and the manner in which this is expressed.
