The Editor ventures therefore to reprint what he said last year in introducing a similar volume, entitled, Prize Translations, Poems, and Parodies. It only remains for him to point out one or two differences which are also, he trusts, improvements. Several Prose Translations have been interspersed. Fewer alternative versions have been admitted. Some Translations and Original Poems, which were likely to have suffered a nine-years imprisonment, not for the reason that Horace gave to his young friends, but because of the res angusta of he Journal, have obtained their Habeas Corpus.

The multitude of translators is no guarantee of wisdom, but it is satisfactory to observe that the interest in the Translation Prizes has not flagged, and that for the Golds and Reds, whose score is here printed, nearly 1800 arrows have been discharged - not all in vain, though here unrecorded.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
