Summary Annotation Horace's later lyric poetry, Odes IV, which focuses on praising Augustus, the imperial family, and other political insiders, has often been treated more as propaganda than art. Timothy Johnson examines the richly textured ambiguities of Odes IV that engage the audience in the communal or sympotic formulation of Horace's praise.
