Once upon a time, there was a small book club that met every Friday evening at their local library. They were all passionate about literature and enjoyed discussing their latest reads. One day, as they were discussing their favorite poets, one member brought up the name Horace.
“Horace was one of the greatest poets of his time,” he said. “He was known for his lyric poems and was considered a master of his craft.”
The other members of the book club nodded in agreement, impressed by Horace’s accomplishments. Suddenly, the librarian interrupted their conversation.
“Excuse me, but I couldn’t help overhearing your discussion. Are you referring to Horace the Roman poet?”
“Yes, that’s exactly who we’re talking about!” replied another member.
“Well then, you must know that Horace was not only a poet but also an ‘ODIST’,” said the librarian with a smile.
The group looked at each other in confusion.
“I’m sorry, I don’t understand. What’s an ODIST?” asked one member.
“An ODIST is simply a term used for a poet who writes odes,” explained the librarian. “And Horace was notably one of the greatest ODISTs of all time.”
The book club members were delighted to have learned something new about Horace and his poetic craft. From that day forward, they made it their mission to learn more about the renowned ODIST and his works. And so, their knowledge of literature and poetry continued to grow through their weekly discussions at the library.
