P. Papini Stati Silvae by P. Papinius Statius ( Book )
191 editions published between 1481 and 2008 in 5 languages and held by 1,354 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
Statius by P. Papinius Statius ( Book )
71 editions published between 1731 and 2003 in 4 languages and held by 1,352 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 AD. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires 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. Statius published his Thebaid in the last decade of the first century. This epic recounting the struggle between the two sons of Oedipus for the kingship of Thebes is his masterpiece, a stirring exploration of the passions of civil war. The extant portion of his unfinished Achilleid is strikingly different in tone; this second epic begins as a charming account of Achilles' life. -- Jacket

Thebaid : a song of Thebes by P. Papinius Statius ( Book )
8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 371 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."--BOOK JACKET

Silvae IV by P. Papinius Statius ( Book )
15 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 315 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."--BOOK JACKET

The Thebaid : seven against Thebes by P. Papinius Statius ( Book )
9 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A classical epic 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. ... Charles Stanley Ross offers a compelling version of the Thebaid rendered into forceful, modern English. Casting Statius's Latin hexameter into a lively iambic pentameter more natural to the modern ear, Ross frees the work from the archaic formality that has marred previous translations. His translation reinvigorates the Thebaid as a whole: its meditative first half and its violent second half; its intimate portrayal of defeat and retribution, and the need to seek justice at any cost. In a wide-ranging introduction, Ross provides an overview of the poem: its composition, reception and legacy; its major themes and literary influences; and its place in Statius' life. A nd in a helpful series of notes, he offers background information on the major characters and incidents. --Johns Hopkins University Press

"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
