Editorial Reviews


"Newland's approach--honed from her ^Playing with Time: Ovid and the Fasti" in which she tackled Ovid's combiniation of poetic narrative and national encomium--will provoke a new and to some degree sythetic phase in this movement.... Anyone interested in Flavian interested in Flavian poetry should consult this book, which is recommended for upper-division underground, graduate, and research collections." Choice

Book Description

Statius' Silvae are argued in this book to be important social and literary productions. Traditionally derided as occasional and therefore inconsequential verse, they offer fascinating insight into the history, politics, art and literature of the Flavian period. They celebrate and explore in all its variety and ambiguity a flourishing literary and artistic culture which the condemnation of Domitian's memory after his assassination had largely suppressed. They deserve consideration for what they reveal about the role of poetry and patronage in imperial society as well as about imperial art and architecture.
