P. Papini Stati Silvae by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

193 editions published between 1481 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Silvae of Statius have been preserved in a fifteenth-century manuscript that has long been considered corrupt. In this careful, readable text, Courtney takes the view, held by Klotz alone among editors but strongly supported by recent discoveries of new material, that this manuscript was identical to that seen by Politician. The difficulties are compounded by the author's mannerist style, which most modern editors have often misinterpreted as a defense for corrupt readings. For this text Courtney has surveyed the scholarly literature on the Silvae in its entirety, and has often returned to the judgments of the great seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Latinists in an effort to produce a readable text that does not ignore any difficulties

Greek literary education and Roman political reality are evident in the poetry of Statius (c. 50-96 CE). His Silvae are thirty-two occasional poems. His masterpiece, the epic Thebaid, recounts the struggle for kingship between the two sons of Oedipus. The extant portion of his Achilleid begins an account of Achilles's life and renews epic
The Silvae of Statius by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

187 editions published between 1475 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 988 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publius Papinius Statius lived from the 40s to the mid-90s C.E. Born in Naples, he was the son of a professional poet and teacher. In his teens he moved to Rome, and there, some years later, he embarked on his own career in poetry. Published near the end of his life, the Silvae is a collection of witty and engaging occasional poems, but beyond their verbal artistry lies their importance as social documents, contemporary witnesses to the Roman world during the reign of Domitian. The poems open a literary window on the material culture of the age and provide valuable insight into the lives of the Roman elite. Betty Rose Nagle's graceful translation brings the world of Statius alive, making accessible this important literary gem. Her Introduction locates Statius in his historical and literary context, considers the importance of his Silvae, and gives a brief history of the text

Thebaid : a song of Thebes by P. Papinius Statius( )

11 editions published in 2008 in English and Latin and held by 614 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Thebaid, a Latin epic in twelve books by Statius (c. 45-96 C.E.) reexamines events following the abdication of Oedipus, focusing on the civil war between the brothers Eteocles, King of Thebes, and Polynices, who comes at the head of an army from Argos to claim his share of royal power. The poem is long - each of the twelve books comprises over eight hundred lines - and complex, and it exploits a broad range of literary works, both Greek and Latin. Severely curtailed though he was by the emperor Domitian and his Reign of Terror, Statius nevertheless created a meditation on autocratic rule that is still of political interest today. Popular in its own time and much admired in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance - most notably by Dante and Chaucer - the poem fell into obscurity and has, for readers of English, been poorly served by translators." "Statius composed his poem in dactylic hexameters, the supreme verse form in antiquity. In his hands, this venerable line is flexible, capable of subtle emphases and dramatic shifts in tempo; it is an expressive, responsive medium. In this new and long-awaited translation the poet Jane Wilson Joyce employs a loose, six-beat line in her English translation, which allows her to reveal something of the original rhythm and of the interplay between sentence structure and verse framework. The clarity of Joyce's translation highlights the poem's superb versification, sophisticated use of intertextuality, and bold formal experimentation and innovation. A substantial introduction and annotations make this epic accessible to students of all levels."--Jacket
Silvae by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 A.D. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires a monument or artistic object, describes a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct picture quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome."--BOOK JACKET

Silvae IV by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

26 editions published between 1902 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The fourth book of Statius' Siluae, containing a preface and nine poems, was published in AD 95. The occasions celebrated range from the building of a road to the gift-giving festival of the Saturnalia, and the book is of particular interest because it was published in defiance of criticism of the first three books and because it contains a cycle of three poems in honour of the emperor Domitian, a higher proportion than in any other book of the Siluae." "This edition contains the first commentary on Book IV since Vollmer's edition of the Siluae in 1898. The introduction discusses Statius' career, the chronology and arrangement of the poems in Book IV, the title Siluae, the nature of the collection, the authenticity of the tituli affixed to the individual poems, and the textual tradition. A text with full apparatus criticus is supplied, and a facing prose translation. The commentary covers textual, linguistic, literary, and historical questions, and for each poem there is an introductory note dealing with the genre, the occasion, and (where applicable) the prosopography of the addressee."--Jacket
Thebaid by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

16 editions published between 1773 and 2003 in English and Latin and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Thebaid of Publius Papinius Statius is an epic poem in twelve books, completed in about A.D. 90. It has been thought by many to stand second only to Virgil among Latin narrative poems." "Its theme is the war between Eteocles and Polynices, sons of Oedipus, for the throne of Thebes. Rich in incident and always dramatic in tone, it unfolds a panorama of human ambition and violence, triumph and catastrophe. Though remaining within the Homeric and Virgilian tradition, it achieves its own power and vitality in thought, language, and description." "Held in high esteem and widely imitated in the middle ages and the Renaissance, the Thebaid of Statius is not only a masterpiece of poetry but a compelling story, at times horrifying, noble, and pathetic, of humankind bound by the power of Fate."--BOOK JACKET

The Thebaid : seven against Thebes by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An epic story of fratricide and war, the Thebaid retells the legendary conflict between the sons of Oedipus - Polynices and Eteocles - for control of the city of Thebes. The Latin poet Statius chose to rework a familiar tale from Greek myth, dramatized long before by Aeschylus in his tragedy Seven against Thebes. Published in A.D. 92, the Thebaid was an immediate success, and its fame grew in succeeding centuries. It reached its peak of popularity in the later Middle Ages and the Renaissance, influencing Dante, Chaucer, and quite possibly Shakespeare. More recently, however, it has received less attention that it deserves, in large part because there has been no accessible, dynamic translation of the work into English." "Charles Stanley Ross offers a version of the Thebaid rendered into modern English. In a wide-ranging introduction, Ross provides an overview of the poem's composition, reception, and legacy; major themes and literary influences; and place in Statius's life. And in a series of notes, he offers background information on major characters and incidents."--Jacket
Silvae 5 by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Latin and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems of Silvae 5, the last book of the Silvae, were composed in the final years of Domitian's principate (81-96 A.D.). The book was probably assembled by an editor soon after Statius' death, and is important for its concern with the poet himself, as well as public figures and personal friends. Three of the poems are laments, including one for Statius' father, himself a poet and teacher; there is also a short poem on insomnia, and one addressed to a young man at the start of his public career." "Bruce Gibson's commentary is the first to be published on Silvae 5 since Vollmer's 1898 commentary on the whole of the Silvae, and includes a critical text and parallel translation. The general introduction deals with such topics as the poetics of the Silvae, the posthumous status of Book 5, and the tradition of poems of lament and consolation. The commentary examines issues of linguistic usage and textual problems, the historical and cultural background, and aspects of interpretation such as the use of allusion and the role of genre. Silvae 5 emerges as the work of a learned poet responding to the Rome of his time whilst fully engaged with the traditions of Greek and Latin literature."--BOOK JACKET
