Take a look at Horace's "Ode 1.5" from Carmina in depth with an analysis worksheet. Included on the first page is the original Latin version of the verses as well as a literal translation. Pupils respond to questions relating to sounds, meter, diction, syntax, imagery, figurative language, genre, tone, subject, and form.
- While meant for a Latin class, this could be adapted for an English class during a poetry unit
- The questions are very complex and assume prior knowledge; the worksheet would be best for older and more advanced students
- Includes a wide range of questions to encourage a complete analysis of the text
