PREFACE.

In the present edition of Smart's Horace, the translation has been revised wherever it seemed capable of being rendered closer and more accurate. Orelli's text has been generally followed, and a considerable number of useful annotations, selected from the best commentaries, ancient and modern, have been added. Several quotations from Hurd on the “ Ars Poetica,” though somewhat lengthy, have been introduced, as their admirable taste can not but render them acceptable to readers of every class.
