Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study the reception of classical tradition in the Spanish poet Víctor Botas, and, in particular, of Horace’s lyric works, the Odes and the Carmen Saeculare. To this aim, we will distinguish three aspects of this relationship: the construction of Horace as a character (1), the poetic versions of the book Segunda mano (2), and, finally, the intertextual relationships between Horace and Víctor Botas (3). In this last section we will focus on three topics: the reflection on the poetry itself, the updating of carpe diem, and the perdurability of poetry.
