Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with Jacob Locher's edition of Horace's works published in Strasbourg in 1498. It concentrates on Horace's Odes, as holes in his prefatory material focuses exclusively on the Horace's oeuvre. The chapter comments on the several para texts: poems by Locher, woodcuts, and a dedicatory letter to the Margrave of Baden Charles. This chapter analyzes strategies with which Locher legitimizes his own authority as commentator. On the one hand, he is keen on stressing did he himself as a poet laureate who is explaining an ancient poet laureate (the para texts emphasize Horace's coronation by the Muses in a woodcut ).Obviously, Locher wants to be seen in closest possible connection with Horace. On the other hand, he presents himself as closely related to Apollo. The original text of the chapter is in German and English.
