Odes
Horace
Translated and with commentary by David R. Slavitt

“Horace is the quintessential lyric poet of the Silver Age, the poet of wit, urbanity, sophistication, and a unique balance of irony and ingenuous passion. David Slavitt is just such a writer in American English. He has given us in this translation an experience equivalent to the excitement of reading Horace in Latin.”
—Daniel Mark Epstein, translator of The Bacchae

Couched in Death
Klinai and Identity in Anatolia and Beyond
Elizabeth P. Baughan

“A tour de force of meticulous research, broad reach, and thoughtful interpretation. Couched in Death will remain the definitive publication of klinai and kline tombs for decades to come. An invaluable contribution to scholarship of archaic and classical Greece and a must have for everyone interested in these societies.”
—Elspeth R.M. Dusinberre, author of Aspects of Empire in Achaemenid Sardis
