· Statius has a conscious classical poeticism, based on Augustan rhetorico-literary theories and in accordance with the cultural orientations of the Flavian reign. It is, however, difficult to attach him to a coherent system of ideas. Next to the idea of the poeta doctus and limae labor, one finds the survival of a neoteric motif of poetry as a iocus and a lusus as well as a Callimachean antithesis.

· This poem, on an insomciac, occupies a key position between two epicedia for the dead at the end of the Silvae. This gives Somnus an infernal role and the loss of poetic power. The poem has intertextual allusions to Virgil's Dido and Ovid's exile.

· In the Thebaid, Valerius Flaccus, and Silius Italicus, non-Roman mothers are depicted as Others, either having destructive powers that undermine the predominant male ideological code, or being a constructive apparatus that affirms the achievements of the male protagonists toward the manufacture of an imperial ideology. These make Romanness an idealized and utopian concept.
