Synopsis: 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.

About the Author: Carole Newlands is Professor of Classics at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She has published Playing with Time: Ovid and the Fasti (1995).

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Statius Silvae, written late in the reign of Domitian (AD 81-96), are a new kind of poetry that confronts the challenge of imperial majesty or private wealth by new poetic strategies and forms. As poems of praise, they delight in poetic excess whether they honour the emperor or the poet s friends. Yet extravagant speech is also capacious speech. It functions as a strategy for conveying the wealth and grandeur of villas, statues and precious works of art as well as the complex emotions aroused by the material and political culture of empire. The Silvae are the product of a divided, self-fashioning voice. Statius was born in Naples of non-aristocratic parents. His position as outsider to the culture he celebrates gives him a unique perspective on it. The Silvae are poems of anxiety as well as praise, expressive of the tensions within the later period of Domitian s reign. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780521126113
