This chapter discusses prologues to commentaries on Horace's Ars poetica, written around 1150. Two anonymous texts are considered. The first, known as the ‘Materia’ commentary, deals with the medieval arts of poetry as well as the ‘six rules’ doctrine. The second text focuses on the use of Horace's work for the teaching of composition and assigns his work to logic rather than to ethics. It also looks at the verbal arts of the trivium.

Keywords:   prologues, commentaries, Horace, Ars poetica, poetry, six rules doctrine, composition, logic, verbal arts, trivium
