1547 Statius GREEK Literature Thebaid Silvae Achilleid Latin Gryphius Gauffered Of Dante’s Divine Comedy Fame / comp@$1,600 Publius Papinius Statius (45 – 96 AD) was a Roman poet. His surviving Latin poetry includes an epic in twelve books, the Thebaid; a collection of occasional poetry, the Silvae; and an unfinished epic, the Achilleid. He is also known for his appearance as a guide in the Purgatory section of Dante's epic poem The Divine Comedy. The Thebaid is a Latin epic in 12 books written in dactylic hexameter by Publius Papinius Statius (AD c. 45–c. 96). The poem deals with the Theban cycle and treats the assault of the seven champions of Argos against the city of Thebes. The Silvae is a collection of Latin occasional poetry in hexameters, hendecasyllables, and lyric meters by Publius Papinius Statius (c. 45 – c. 96 CE). There are 32 poems in the collection, divided into five books. Each book contains a prose preface which introduces and dedicates the book. The subjects of the poetry are varied and provide scholars with a wealth of information on Domitian's Rome and Statius' life. The Achilleid (Latin: Achilleis) is an unfinished epic poem by Publius Papinius Statius that was intended to present the life of Achilles from his youth through his death at Troy. Only about one and a half books (1,127 dactylic hexameters) were completed before the poet's death. What remains is an account of the hero's early life with Chiron the centaur, and an episode in which his mother Thetis disguised him as a girl on the island of Scyros before he joined the Greek expedition against Troy.
