The Oxford Classical Texts series easily rivals the Bristol Classical Press's series of Latin and Greek texts. Where else can you find the entire corpus of Horace in one book and in such a beautiful edition. Indeed, the cover which you see here is but a paper cover to the lovely, black bound edition underneath. Despite it being vital for any scholar I have only a few criticisms. All editions in this series, Latin and Greek, are in no way helpful to the young tiro: there is no commentary. Indeed, these editions were mainly published at the turn of the twentieth century! Further, the preface, far from introducing a novice to a short biography or notes on metre etc. is simply written in LATIN and is full of scholarly acuities on the comparison of codices; an apologia, of course, from the editor in how he created the critical edition of all of Horace's works. Another criticism is the price: £15 + for a book is a bit much, although worth it when you consider that you are getting ALL of his works in one place. I bought my edition from a trader and (I love finding this in books) saw an inscription from the previous owner (name etc.) from the early twentieth century! Another pro from buying from a trader is the fact that, with my edition of Caesar's "De Bello Gallico", the book cost me around £5 altogether and was brand new! Buy, buy, buy!

Horace's Opera, Latin edition 25 Dec. 2011
By Sergio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A great little libellum to carry around. It has all of the works of Horace in Latin, and contains textual apparati for all works, which is extremely useful to those performing a close study of Horace's texts.
