Valerius Flaccus by Gaius Valerius Flaccus( Book )

Valerius Flaccus, Gaius, Latin poet who flourished in the period ca. AD70-90, composed in smooth and sometimes obscure style an incomplete epic Argonautica in eight books, on the Quest for the Golden Fleece. The poem is typical of his age, being a free re-handling of the story already told by Apollonius Rhodius, to whom he is superior in arrangement, vividness, and description of character. Valerius' poem shows much imitation of the language and thought of Virgil, and much learning. The chief interest of the epic lies in the relationship between Medea and Jason, especially the growth of Medea's love, where Valerius is at his best. The long series of adventures and various Roman allusions suggest that the poet meant to do honour to Vespasian (to whom the epic is dedicated) with special reference to that emperor's ships in water around Britain. -- Jacket
Argonautica by Gaius Valerius Flaccus( Book )

59 editions published between 1474 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Apollonius Rhodius' epic poem Argonautica, written in Greek during the third century BC, has become the de facto standard version of the story of Jason and the Argonauts and their quest for the Golden Fleece. Valerius Flaccus' Latin epic of the late first century AD is by contrast little known, even to those otherwise well-read in ancient literature. This translation offers an accurate and appealing version in English verse." "Flaccus' Argonautica lends keen Roman touches to the tale, developing further the sense of adventure and the erotic passion found in the Greek. It offers vicarious travel to exotic lands, gripping heroism in the face of wondrous monsters and an "all-star team" of famous Greek heroes. The stirring sea voyage is interwoven with blossoming love between Jason and Medea, their young passion not yet gone sour."

"This commentary on the first book of Valerius Flaccus' Argonautica also includes an introduction, the text (with apparatus criticus) and a facing English translation. The commentary proper addresses narrower textual and semantic questions, on the one hand, and broader questions of stylistics, poetics, thematics, and cultural context on the other. Particularly close attention is paid to Valerius' choice of diction, his sophisticated use of figures and tropes, his often sly erudition, the recurring and strategic resort to subtle intertextual gestures and, where appropriate, the reception of his work in later authors. The substantial introduction provides an overview of the poet and his poem. It discusses, inter alia, the limited evidence for Valerius' life; the main features of his often difficult poetic language; the handling of the Argonautic myth in literature prior to Valerius; his innovative treatment of the inherited material; and his self-positioning within the broader literary tradition, particularly his sophisticated adaptation of formal and thematic elements from his two principal poetic models, Apollonius Rhodius' Argonautica and Virgil's Aeneid. While the commentary is written for readers with some competence in Latin, the introduction, and the facing English translation, are thoroughly accessible to non-Latinate readers with an interest in Roman literature and in the ancient epic tradition."--Jacket

"In spite of an increased interest over the last ten years in the first century A.D. Roman poet Valerius Flaccus, involving the production of several commentaries, part of his work Argonautica was still lacking a modern commentary. This book gives a full philological and literary commentary of the turbulent book VI of the Argonautica. The Silver Latin author's peculiar phraseology and choice of words is highlighted. Where possible the poem is interpreted in the context of the other Silver Latin epic poets."--Jacket
