"Altitude, Collection, and Interiority"

"Images of altitude, collection, and interiority run throughout Horace’s Odes, especially in his advice poetry. Frequently, these images represent striving, which Horace criticizes; instead, he advises enjoyment of the present. But these images not only articulate Horace’s advice, but also complicate it. The first three chapters each examine how one of these images operates in multiple poems. The final chapter explores poetry as an exception to Horace’s criticism of striving through the lens of these images. "
