The pool of electronic resources for Horatian studies has grown considerably in recent years.

Here is a small selection of sites useful for students.

 The Horace Project.

Created by Lee T. Pearcy of Bryn Mawr College, the Horace Project is probably the most extensive collection of Horatian links on the web.

 Texts of the Odes and Satires.

The texts, which features grammar and vocabulary links, as well as commentary, is available through the Perseus Project, the premiere website of classical studies. The text and commentary of the Odes is from the Shorey / Laing edition, which is also our text.

Furthermore, the CD-ROM version of Perseus, which contains even more information than its online counterpart, is available over the local Skidmore network. From "Network Neighborhood" click on \\cits6\library\cdrom\perseus\experts.txt for instructions on accessing the Perseus CD-ROM from your own machine.

 Horace's Villa Project.

This site, co-sponsored by the American Academy in Rome and the Soprintendenza Archeologica per il Lazio, is devoted to the excavations of Horace's country estate, which figures prominently in his poetry. Particularly valuable are the site plans and reconstructions.


A series of pages (with sound files) that introduce the meter of the Aeneid and other poems written in dactylic hexameter. Written by Dan Curley of Skidmore College.


Managed by Philippa Matheson of the University of Toronto, the TOCS-IN site makes available—for searching, browsing, or downloading—the tables of contents of over 150 journals of interest to classicists (1992-present).

 Writing in Classics.

A series of pages on writing essays and research papers within the discipline of Classics.

 The Skidmore Guide to Writing.

This valuable handbook, produced by the Skidmore Department of English (and available in the Skidmore Shop), is now online.
