Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, ORThe fourth book of Horacea#39;s Odes answers Eliota#39;s question especially well because its themes move into the Augustan Empire that could only have been imagined by Vergil at his premature death in 19 B.C. From the point of view of theme, Vergila#39;s poem is universal as of ... the concomitant universality, Horacea#39;s final work, though slender, must be regarded as the fuller answer to Eliota#39;s arresting question.
