Things Metrical

Two quickies for your consideration:

Christopher Francese reads Horace’s priamel to Maecenas in the latest Latin Poetry Podcast, and Kiichiro Itsumi’s Pindaric Metre: The Other Half finally gets a proper (and a positive) review.

Horace 1.1 is one of the first pieces I can recall really working on to produce a good, literary translation, and Itsumi’s book is still sitting on my meter shelf, waiting for enough time in the schedule to dive in.

Good news all around.
