  Epode - LoveToKnow 1911
EPODE, in verse, the third part in an ode, which followed the strophe and the antistrophe, and completed the movement; it was called ErrcpSos rEpiobos by the Greeks.
It consisted of a verse of trimeter iambic, followed by a dimeter iambic, and it is reported that, although the epode was carried to its highest perfection by Stesichorus, an earlier poet, Archilochus, was really the inventor of this form.
In Latin poetry the epode was cultivated, in conscious archaism, both as a part of the ode and as an independent branch of poetry.

 Epode XII
Epode 12 is another return to the iambic madness that characterized both epodes 8 and 10.
This epode is a reciprocal iamb imitating the form of the amoebaean folk song where one or two persons trade off the role of speaker.
Epode 12 is a backtrack to the personal invective which the iambist in the previous epode 11 said that he had been unable to write because of love.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 96.7.19
The Epodes have traditionally been distinguished from early Greek iambic poetry because, it was thought, Greek poets like Archilochus wrote from "personal experience" whereas Horace peopled his iambics with stock figures, like the pharmakos Mevius in Epode 10 or the lena Lesbia in Epode 12 (7).
In the introduction to Epode 4, for instance, Mankin is skeptical of attempts to identify the ex-slave with historical figures.

 Strophe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a more general sense, the strophe is a pair of stanzas of alternating form on which the structure of a given poem is based.
But it was the Greek ode-writers who introduced the practice of strophe-writing on a large scale, and the art was attributed to Stesichorus, although it is probable that earlier poets were acquainted with it.
The arrangement of an ode in a splendid and consistent artifice of strophe, antistrophe and epode was carried to its height by Pindar.

EpODE (ExPert system for Ordinary Differential Equations) is a problem-solving environment (PSE) that provides the computational facilities necessary to find a numerical solution of the IVP of ODEs.
The first version of EpODE was designed especially for the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations of stiff type (many software packages can not integrate such equations).
In the case of a large number of equations EpODE uses numerical codes combined with PVM procedures in the idea to distribute the computations on some processors of a local network.

 epode --  Encyclopædia Britannica
In Greek lyric odes, an epode is the third part of the three-part structure of the poem, following the strophe and the antistrophe.
The antistrophe followed the strophe and preceded the epode.
Pindar employed the triadic structure of Stesichorus (7th and 6th centuries BC), consisting of a strophe (two or more lines repeated as a unit) followed by a metrically harmonious antistrophe, concluding with a summary line (called an epode) in a different metre.

Example: Epode 2 (Chapter 41): the first part of the poem, a heart-felt praise of rural life, turns out to be spoken by the money-lender Alfius, who either never had any intention of moving to the country, or else can't extricate himself from the rhythm of the money-lending cycle of the city.
Example: Epode 2 (Chapter 41), "superba limina": what the "beatus" avoids isn't just the physical house, or physical threshold, but the entire client-patron relationship, which is humiliating to the client who has to wait at the beck and call of the wealthy and powerful.
Example: Epode 2 (Chapter 41), "mugientium": the first syllable, "mu-", recalls the mooing sound of cattle.

It is also likely that some odes were delivered not by the chorus in two parts but by the chorus as a unit moving in one direction during the strophe, then in the opposite direction during the antistrophe, and standing still during the epode.
The epode differs in structure in whatever ways the poet chooses to make it differ to suit his content; it is usually placed after the antistropbc but may be used between the strophe and antistrophe.
Even within the relative rigidity of the Pindaric ode, the poet has flexibility in determining the structure of the strophe (and hence, the antistrophe) as well as the epode.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2004.09.31
No doubt W. will be criticized in some quarters for his avowedly intentionalist rhetoric, but one of the many joys of this work is that in those places where one feels reservations about W.'s literary judgement, he supplies, via meticulous referencing and generously full summaries of rival interpretations, an excellent starting point for dissenting readings.
Surprisingly, the introduction lacks a discussion of the word epode and does not attempt to catalogue the standard paraphernalia of iambic poetry.
Although W.'s brief analysis of Epodes 3 well demonstrates the shifts in tone and register and the garlicky puns of the piece, this reader was still left cold.

The choral ode, patterned after the movements of the chorus in Greek drama, has a three-part stanza structure: the strophe, the antistrophe, and the epode.
This structure marks a turn from one intellectual position to another and then a recounting of the entire ode subject.
The strophe and antistrophe have the same metrical scheme; the epode has a different structure.

 Hendry on Horace, APA 1996
Clayman has argued that Horace's two obscene attacks on older women, Epodes 8 (passage 6) and 12 (passage 7), should be read as poetic allegories.
She has Stoic booklets (line 15) and political connections (lines 13-14), is rich (line 11), and seems to be married and even older than the one in 12.
We might say that the woman in Epode 12 is the jaded muse of the neoteric school.

 Book Reviews #20 - Southern Ocean Review
Wedde’s first collection of poems in several years is marked by an outstanding first poem, Epode: a conversation a sort of ruminating diallogue with the Latin poet, Horace, sharing his praises of “the commonplace world”.
The collection as a whole is in a 1960s revival style though not the 60s of Wedde's own youthful work but rather that of more traditionally oriented authors.
Epode employs these conventions with considerable skill and often movingly.

 Splendid Magazine reviews Valina: Epode
Valina have been likened to such notable acts as Fugazi and Shellac, but Epode demonstrates a refreshing eclecticism that actually sets the Austrian post-punkers apart from their forbears and contemporaries.
There's a tendency among young bands to try to fill too many niches at once, which inevitably results in a weak, confused sound, but Epode avoids those pitfalls; there's a singular energy at work here that makes Valina's pluralism that much more effective.
The addition of a female vocalist represents another unexpected variation, and marks "Escort of Soda" as Epode's highlight.
