De raptu Proserpinae by Claudius Claudianus( Book )

16 editions published between 1520 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Claudian was one of the last great Latin poets of the classical tradition, writing in the fourth century A.D. This simplified text of his poem, De Raptu Prosperpinae, has a facing-page translation to make the work more accessible to non-specialists. This book sets Claudian in his rightful place as a distinctive creative writer of late antiquity with the roots of the whole classical tradition before him. In addition to an incisive commentary, the book includes a text designed to simplify Hall's apparatus

38 editions published between 1922 and 1998 in 4 languages and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Less important are non-official poems such as the three books of a mythological epic the Rape of Proserpina, unfinished as was also a Battle of Giants (in Greek). Noteworthy are the Phoenix, the Senex Veronensis, (elegiac) prefaces, and the epistles, epigrams and idylls. Through the patronage of Stilicho or through Serena, Claudius in 404 married well in Africa and was granted a statue in Rome. Nothing is known of him after 404. In his poetry are true poetic as well as rhetorical skill, command of language, polished style, diversity, vigour, satire, dignity, bombast, artificiality, flattery, and other virtues and faults of the former 'silver' age in Latin. He could raise what is mean, adorn the barren, and himself rise to an occasion. His work is a revival surprising for his era, origin, and professional status. Himself influenced by various forerunners in poetry, he has influenced people of later ages down to modern times

Claudius Claudianus (c. 370-c. 410 CE) gives us important knowledge of Honorius's time and displays poetic as well as rhetorical skill, command of language, and diversity. A panegyric on the brothers Probinus and Olybrius (consuls together in 395 CE) was followed mostly by epics in hexameters, but also by elegiacs, epistles, epigrams, and idylls
