Horace's imitation of archaic and Hellenistic Greek iambos is a refashioning of the genre, based on limiting the power of invective while at the same time recreating its impulse. The way he uses Archilochus and Callimachus is very significant and responds to a sophisticated sense of literary history.

Abstract

Horace's imitation of archaic and Hellenistic Greek iambos is a refashioning of the genre, based on limiting the power of invective while at the same time recreating its impulse. The way he uses Archilochus and Callimachus is very significant and responds to a sophisticated sense of literary history.
