The discussion of Horace's lyric is taken beyond the previous chapter. The book of Epodes and each book of Odes are seen to have a dynamic structure, to move decisively. Horace uses Archilochus and Hipponax and Alcaeus, Sappho, and other Greek lyric poets in the creation of structures which revolve around the relation of and tension between art and the narrator. These are metaliterary books, concerned with themselves. Papyri of lyric and related texts are used to show the scholarly and critical tradition which would have shaped Horace's reading and study of lyric. The arrangement of poems in lyric papyri is considered, and Horace's intertextuality with a complex tradition explored.

Keywords:   Horace, Odes, Epodes, Greek lyric, metaliterary books, dynamic structure, narrator, critical tradition, Alcaeus, Sappho
