The Roman Poet Horace seems to have written early texts in GREEK language. Could you help me to find examples or could you name specialists concerning the early work of Horace (Horatius Flaccus) ? Thanks HLK
Horace did try to write Greek poetry, apparently while a student. But he gave it up when he realized he couldn’t compete with Greek poets. As far as I know, none of his Greek poetry has survived. See his Satires 1.10.
Hello, I have read about early poems and texts of HORACE in GREEK (instead
Latin) language. Can you find examples of such texts or name specialists, who
might be able to comment on the question ?- Thanks, HLK
Welcome to the SDMB, Hans. I didn’t notice last time that you were new.
Your first thread is still around even after it falls off the first page. There’s no need to start another one, so I’ve merged the two threads. You can “bump” an existing thread once to garner more responses. For more information, see http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showpost.php?p=7697100&postcount=4
