This edition, including the Latin text with full apparatus criticus and a prose translation, contains the first commentary on Statius' Silvae IV since Vollmer's 1898 edition. Of interest as a social document from the early Roman Empire and because it was published despite criticism of the preceding three volumes, Silvae IV contains a preface and nine poems.

Text: English, LatinReview:
'very welcome ... predictably bold' Greece & Rome, Vol.37, No.2, Oct '90 'this is quite simply the best thing on the Silvae available and that it fills a great gap in our knowledge of this kind of poetry ... The text offered is a considerable improvement on its predecessors, the translation is clear, readable and, given the difficulties of Statius' allusive and inflated style, almost miraculously intelligible ... If learning and lightness of touch are among the most striking characteristics of the Silvae,they are also the hallmark of C.'s study.' M. J. Dewar, Christ Church, Oxford. Classical Review
