Statius, poet between Rome and Naples

Carole E. Newlands

This book examines the poetry of Statius (c. 40-96 AD), in relation to significant social and cultural issues of his day, in particular shifting attitudes to Hellenism, gender and Roman imperialism. It also discusses the reception of Statius' poetry in the Middle Ages, when his reputation was at its zenith. Medieval interpretations of Statius' epics suggest that their popularity rested in part on the prominence they give to female action and the female voice, thus suggesting new expressive and generic possibilities.
