Valerius Flaccus by Gaius Valerius Flaccus Setinus Balbus( Book )

94 editions published between 1934 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 1,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Statius by P. Papinius Statius( Book )

11 editions published between 1928 and 1982 in 3 languages and held by 85 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

Art of Love. Cosmetics. Remedies for Love. Ibis. Walnut-tree. Sea Fishing. Consolation by Ovid( )

7 editions published between 1929 and 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the didactic poetry of Face Cosmetics, Art of Love, and Remedies for Love, Ovid (43 BCE-17 CE) demonstrates abstrusity and wit. His Ibis is an elegiac curse-poem. Nux, Halieutica, and Consolatio ad Liviam are poems now judged not to be by Ovid
