Excerpt from Horace: The Odes, Epodes, Satires, and Epistles; Translated by the Most Eminent English Scholars and Poets

IN spite of the great difficulty of rendering the exquisite Odes of Horace into another language with out at least diminishing their singular charm, they have found more translators than any other classic poet. From the days when the gallant and gifted Surrey and Sir Philip Sidney tried to achieve the task of rendering a few Odes, to the present day, numbers of our poets and greatest scholars have attempted to bestow on English Literature a more or less perfect version of the Roman Poet's works. Thus the terseness, the picturesqueness, the archness, or pathos of Horace have had the advantage of being re¿ected from many minds, and given in rhymeless metre or melodious verse as each translator preferred. The earliest ones were remarkable for almost too close a fidelity to the original, with the exception, perhaps, of Milton's rendering of the Ode to Pyrrha, which is as beautiful as it is faithful.
