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.
