An ode relating to or resembling the works or style of the Roman poet, Horace, consisting of a series of uniform stanzas, complex in their metrical system and rhyme scheme. The Greek form is called an aeolic ode. Horatian odes are characteristically less elaborate and more restrained than Pindaric odes.
