Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with an introduction of first and later epistle works of Horace. It presents Horace's past, present, and future poetries. The program poem has a very special significance that goes beyond earlier program poetry or poetic utterances of the poet. In the epistle Horace retrospectively interpreted his work and presents a novel reflection on his previous work and types of poetries. The chapter interprets the text of the epistle under two aspects: 1) Horace's views on interface between life and poetry, and 2) the type of the poetry, that is he represents himself as a character of his poem and he solves it on. The chapter sketches the relationship between the poet and saint, the poet and ruler for the specific development for Recusatio of Odencollection in Horace's work and for the development of his political poetry, especially Augustuspanegyrics. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Augustuspanegyrics; epistle; Horace; Odencollection; political poetry; Recusatio; saint
