Rudolf Koch fue una reconocida personalidad que influyó considerablemente en el desarrollo de las artes gráficas de la Alemania de finales del siglo XIX y principios del siglo XX, adquiriendo gran fama como diseñador de tipos y calígrafo. Éste libro contiene 493 símbolos, que fueron usados desde los tiempos remotos hasta la edad media, y fueron recogidos por Koch y por aquellos que trabajaron con él en la búsqueda de inscripciones, grabados y manuscritos de tiempos pasados. Entre estos signos encontraremos monogramas bizantinos, cruces, iniciales sagradas, símbolos masónicos, alquímicos, de los elementos botánicos y astrológicos, que fueron rediseñados y explicados por Koch. El lector comprobará la belleza tanto estética como simbólica de estos signos, además de su simplicidad en la representación de las ideas como ejemplo de la capacidad de síntesis del hombre

The complete Odes and Epodes : with the Centennial hymn by Horace( Book )

1 edition published in 1926 in Latin and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The odes of Horace are the cornerstone of lyric poetry in the Western world. Their subtlety of tone and brilliance of technique have often proved elusive, especially when - as has usually been the case - a single translator ventures to maneuver through Horace's infinite variety. Now for the first time, leading poets from America, England, and Ireland have collaborated to bring all 103 odes into English in a series of new translations that dazzle as poems while also illuminating the imagination of one of literary history's towering figures." "The thirty-five contemporary poets assembled in this volume include nine winners of the Pulitzer prize for poetry as well as four former U.S. Poet Laureates. Their translations, while faithful to the Latin, dramatize how the poets, each in his or her own way, have engaged Horace in a spirited encounter across time."--Jacket
