• In the Ach., Thetis is not timid and deceitful. Rather, Statius has her change between her roles as mother of a child, interfering with epic, to mother of a hero, an ancillary figure.

• "The proemia to Statius' epic poems are analyzed as dedications to Domitian. The proemia are central to these works since it is through them that Statius builds the ideal motif underlying the imperial praise and the justification of his choice of mythological themes. Through the use of the concepts of ethos and scenography, from French Discourse Analysis, the poet's excusatio, as it appears in the poems, contributed to determine his poetic place and to shape his ethos as a poet-client." Includes Portuguese translations of several passages.

• "Valerius Flaccus offers a glorifying epic variation on Hypsipyle's story, following Apollonius. Almost as a response to that, Statius took the Ovidian material and narrative techniques as his starting point. Thus, as Hypsipyle remembers, expands, and corrects her elegiac past, Statius creates an ambivalent tale and seems to instigate suspicion about narrative truthfulness, something Ovid is well known for," from rev. by Pere Fagrave;bregas Salis, Bryn Marw Classical Review 2020.03.13

Hu, Alice, "Vive, superstes: Survivors and Problems of Survival in Statius' Thebaid," PhD Dissertation (Univ. of Pennsylvania, 2019), Publicly Accessible Penn Dissertations 3634
• Survival is a central preoccupation of the Thebaid and is a traumatic experience, as characters feel they have lived past the point when they think they should have died. This "overliving" becomes a way for Statius to reflect on his place in the epic canon and to figure his own problem of poetic belatedness.

• The scene at Aulis (1.467-513) presents a neo-Iliadic esthetic that differs from the elegiac and Alexandrian nature of the rest of the poem. It also provides a deescalation of the drama in the poem and, through literary references, compares Homeric society with contemporary Rome.

Spinelli, Tommaso, "The Argos Narrative in Statius' Thebaid: A New Ovidian Perseid?," The American Journal of Philology 140.2 (2019) 291-315
• The Theb. (1.312-2.743) is modelled after Met. 4.610-5.249. Statius uses his Ovidian model to "competitively renegotiate his relationship with his Augustan models." The poem hence responds to Flavian politics.

Kronenberg, Leah J., "A Petronian Parrot in a Neronian Cage: A New Reading of Statius' Silvae 2.4," Classical Quarterly N.S. 67 (2017) 558-572
• "Many read Silv. 2.4, a poem about a dead parrot dedicated to Atedius Melior, as picking up on the metapoetic strand in his Ovidian model (Am. 2, 6), in which the parrot may be interpreted as a poet figure. Oddities about the dead parrot and its relationship to its dominus have not been explained. This article argues that the parrot stands in for a specific dead poet/writer, namely Petronius, and that the dominus of the poem is Nero. The dominus is mentioned in the first line but is never addressed and there is no indication of a close relationship with Statius. The name Melior is withheld until line 32, and by this time Statius has provided his readers with the tools necessary to decode this complex poem.

• "Examination of the Europe/Asia binarism in Statius's Achilleid as a means of understanding the polarities of male/female, West/East, Greek/barbarian, and ultimately Roman/non-Roman. Helen's abduction by Paris and the discourse on the succession of empires in Statius's poem reflect Thetis's own transformation of Achilles into a woman. Through his cross-dressing and the impregnation of Deidamia, marked in the text as a violent attack, Achilles comes of age on the liminally-other island of Scyros by replicating Paris's rapina. The 'European' Achilles incorporates both the effeminate traits of the East and the warlike manliness of the West; he also ultimately embodies the 'Asian' other, which he is destined to conquer."

• Gronovius' 1653 edition is the most significant stage in the evolution of the printed text of the Thebaid before the late 19th century. In accordance with contemporary practice, Gronovius selectively corrected a printed textus receptus. Gronovius's corrections are usually of great value and many of them promote readings that are still considered correct today. Regarding his sources, this article compares what Gronovius says in the commentary with his hitherto unstudied documents, in particular his collations, which are preserved in Leiden. Identification of two additional manuscript sources he used.

• "On the use of animal images in Stazio's Thebaid in relation to male and female figures. Their occurrence is linked to the transgression of qualities or expectations of this kind, for men the corruption of the virile virtus, for women the refusal of their maternal role and the ambition to self-affirm and acquire independence. In both cases the transgression is determined by the anger that dominates the epic poem. Animal metaphors become a point of convergence, a common place where gender roles oscillate and social limina vanish in favor of primitive chaos."

• Adrastus' narrative (Theb. 1.577-668) is full of repetitions of words and is echoed in later parts of the epic, especially in the Nemean episode (Books 4-6). The repetitions of words emphasize motifs that play an important role in the poem and combine characters, events, motifs and episodes.

Manilius (Astr. 1.532-6) [proves] it. Looking upwards, in the tradition of Thales and Socrates, might be dangerous, but it was the philosophical pose, the admired posture from Plato onwards. The wealthy homeowners who commissioned handsome floor mosaics and painted ceilings, O'Sullivan suggests, conceived them as facilitating philosophical thinking while they simultaneously served as symbols of moral decline.

• In chapter 4, "Statius (Silv. 1.5), Martial, and Vitruvius provide examples of this rich theme in Roman literature. Chapter five concerns the spaces where public and private meet, with readings of passages from the Georgics, Lucan and Statius' unfinished Achilleid, in which the author shows how small spaces provide a possibility for poetic intensity within the grandiosity of epic. Achilles must be enclosed in the tight rooms of the women on the small island of Scyros to manifest all his energy and manliness and to become the conquering epic hero" (from Ferenczi).

• "The Thebaid and the Silvae are connected by a unitary conception of poetry as a socially prestigious profession, a trade on which authority is conferred by comparison with archetypes of Greek literature: the Homeric aoidos, the lyric singer in the manner of Pindar, the figures of the mythic vates, or the god of poetry, Apollo. Statius's construction of his poetic identity is thus a mixture of the archaic and the contemporary. The historically different experiences of Greek literature are integrated into the ecumenical frame of the Roman empire, and almost into an ecumenical poetics," (from LAPH).

• Statius represents Melior's relationship with the boy Glaucias as both paternal and erotic. Statius subtly likens their relationship to the treatment of slave boys that Domitianic moral legislation rendered illicit.

• "In the Silvae, Statius portrays himself as a Latin poet and shows his independence from his literary tradition through the reversal and amalgamation of the plots, scenes, and characterizations of Greek tragedy. The Athens of Greek tragedy, a city that symbolizes the ideals of its society, is taken over by Statius and used to express a set of Roman and Flavian themes. In the Thebaid, he rejects the opportunity to write about Domitian's conquests and avoids mythological themes that might legitimize the current imperial regime. This was not a choice made by Statius's contemporaries, Valerius and Silius. The Greek theme allows Statius to look forward to a literary future where Roman literary mores control the Greek predecessors" (from LAPH).

• The Thebaid engages with the Flavian as well as the Hellenistic Argonautica if we assume that Valerius Flaccus's text up to (at least) the depiction of the arrival of the Argonauts at Colchis (5.177) was accessible to Statius. This allows Statius to include nautical images as a pseudo-maritime episode, a common epic theme otherwise missing from the Thebaid. It also enables Statius to reinforce positive and negative character traits.

• "The intertextual fabric of the poetics of sleep and dreams in Statius is indebted to Homer and Apollonius Rhodius. Though belonging to a different literary genre, Statius' Silvae comprise, just as the epic poems do, an array of passages dedicated to sleep and wakefulness, in a unique recurrence of themes that not only reminds us of the Thebaid and the Achilleid and their earlier models, but also develops along original lines. In the Silvae, sleep and sleeplessness reveal on the one hand the theme of cosmic distortion of natural and biological rhythms and on the other hand the dynamics of continuity and diffraction, when compared to the epic poems of Statius," (from LAPH).

• On Ach 1.308. The image refers to the similar of Menalaus (Il. 4.141-147). In contrast with Ennius, Catullus, Virgil, and Ovid, Statius (1) does not limit his treatment of the simile to one passage but breaks it up into its constitutive parts, which he scatters across his Achilleid; and (2) recognizes in the Homeric simile the simultaneous presence of feminine and masculine elements, which he restores to create an emblem for his reading of the epic tradition as a whole.

Statius's poetics of elision - the practice of gapping or suppressing visual information in favor of verbal description or emotional response - is a means through which Statius propagates Flavian cultural and political ideology. Statius's focus on vivid descriptions and artistic representation in his ekphrastic works is crucial to the success of these poems" (from LAPH).

"The Flavian epic poets test the conventions and contradictions of normative Roman femininity (and masculinity) in scenes that rehearse different models of epic femininity: lamenting mother, sacrificial maiden, terrifying witch, faithful wife, and Amazonian warrior. Their narratives repeatedly measure the female sex against the standards of masculinity, and are acutely sensitive to contemporary contestations of the territorial assignments of gender in Flavian Rome" (from LAPH).

In the chariot race in Theb. 6, Statius's presentation of Polynices as a new Phaethon connects him to Nero, the unworthy successor. Conversely, both the chariot race and the scene of Amphiaraus's death encourage the reader to regard the seer as a positive ruler figure. This strategy paves the way for Statius's description of Amphiaraus's succession in Theb. 8, an account that seems to be influenced both by the political debate on succession current in the late 1st cent. and by accounts of imperial acclamations" (from LAPH).

• The mention of the hypocaust at Silv. 1.5.58 f. seems to mention the fire in the praefurnium and the movement of the heated air. Using a computer model, the authors show that this is possibly an accurate description of how the hypocaust worked. Further studies are needed.

Silv. 3.1, Statius describes the dedication of a temple of Hercules in Sorrento. The new temple is sung in a new way by a poet who, writing a work that is characterized by the mixture of genres, has been identified by recent criticism as an icon of a literary and cultural change carried out during the Flavian era. A reading of 3.1 is offered as the celebration not only of the Temple of Hercules but also of the new imperial poetics.

• On how Statius situates himself and his poetry amid the social complexities of Domitianic Rome. Silv. 3.5 and 4.5 offer carefully constructed recusationes that expose Statius' deep ambivalence toward his public role as a writer of epic and panegyric, and his persona in these poems is analogous to that of Horace in his first book of Epistles. Though Statius desires public reknown and in 4.4 shows how his public and private poetry are interconnected in a complex manner, his essentially private nature precludes his taking on the most public and potentially-dangerous topic of epic song: Domitian.

Ach. 1.397-559, the gathering of the troops at Aulis, mirrors the themes and structure of the work as a whole, especially in the epic blend of erotic or elegiac material. References to Aen. 2 invites us to read Statius' pre-Iliad as a post-Aeneid, in which Achilles' future glory and the fall of Troy are only a prelude to the reinvigoration of Trojan power in the form of Roman greatness.

Newlands, Carole E., "Sordida rura?: Pastoral Dynamics in the Sphragis to Statius' Silvae," TiC 4 (2012) 111-131
Sordere at Silv. 3.5 is a new turn of the contrast between city and country in bucolic. Statius plays off Virgil, Propertius, and possibly Calpurnius Siculus to make Rome ugly and unsympathetic. Statius uses Ecl. 1.82-83 to bring Naples to the center of the bucolic world.

Newlands, Carole Elizabeth, "Sordida rura? Pastoral dynamics in the sphragis to Statius' Silvae," TiC 4.1 (2012): 111-31
• The word sordere in (Silv. 3.5) indicates a new direction in the contrast between city and land found in bucolic. The word implies moral and social concepts that Statius reflect Virgil, Propertius, and perhaps Calpurnius Siculus to show Rome as ugly and unfriendly while Naples is the proper place for a husband and poet. Statius also modernized Virgilian bucolic and brings is back to Naples and puts the villa in the center.

Newlands, Carole Elizabeth, "Sordida rura? Pastoral Dynamics in the Sphragis to Statius' Silvae," Trends in Classics 4.1 (2012) 111-31
• Forms of sordere in Silv. 3.5 (3.5.17 and 3.5.112) indicate a new direction in the contrast between city and land found in bucolic. The word implies moral and social concepts that Statius uses to reflect Virgil, Propertius, and perhaps Calpurnius Siculus to show Rome as ugly and unfriendly while Naples is the proper place for a husband and poet. Statius also modernized Virgilian bucolic and brings is back to Naples and puts the villa in the center.

• It is misleading to classify S. 3.3 (written for Claudius Etruscus, the equestrian patron of Statius and Martial, to commemorate the death of his unnamed father) as a consolatio. The poem taps into the tradition of consolation, but resists easy categorization and fails to provide a genuine sense of consolation to its addressee. The poem displays competing forms of memorialization, funereal and poetic, and is underpinned by an analysis and critique of differing modes of mourning and the impact on them of the contemporary Flavian political climate.

McCarter, Stephanie Ann, "Maior post otia virtus: Public and Private in Statius, Silvae 3.5. and 4.4," Classical Journal 107.4 (2011-12): 451-81
• On how Statius situates himself and his poetry amid the social complexities of Domitianic Rome. Silv. 3.5 and 4.5 offer carefully-constructed recusationes that expose Statius' deep ambivalence toward his public poetic role as a writer of epic and panegyric, and his persona in these poems is analogous to that of Horace in his first book of Epistles. Though Statius desires public reknown and in 4.4 shows how his public and private poetry are interconnected in a complex manner, his essentially private nature precludes his taking on the most public and potentially-dangerous topic of epic song: Domitian.

• "Argive innocence is opposed in several ways to Theban guilt in Statius's Thebaid. Construction and deconstruction of these oppositions reveal disjunction between the initial narrative portrayal of a virtuous Argos dragged into war by an unjust Jupiter and the counter story of past Argive sin. Cracks in Ornytus's rhetorical attempt to condemn Creon's behavior at 12.155-157 demonstrate the difficulty of assigning simple moral judgments within the poem's complexities."

• Although the reference to the horse Arion at the center of Silv. 1.1 is brief (52-55), it nevertheless opens up different ways of reading the poem generically and politically. Arion played a significant role in the Thebaid as king Adrastus's horse; in Silv. 1.1, Arion's imagined reaction to Domitian's equestrian statue offers an interpretive crux in the encomium. Through allusion to his own epic, Statius suggests a possible method of reading the first of his Silvae as a critical complement to his epic in contemporary Rome" (from LAPH).

Newlands, Carole Elizabeth, "Martial, Epigrams 9.61 and Statius, Silvae 2.3: Branches from the Same Tree?" Scholia: Studies in Classical Antiquity N.S. 20 (2011) 92-111
• "Martial 9.61 and Statius, Silv. 2.3 provide a test case for the interaction between Martial and Statius. While both poems draw on literary topoi about trees from Horace through Ovid and Lucan, they interact with one another in word and theme. This intersubjective form of literary engagement involves both opposition and complementarity ; read as a diptych, these poems reveal the literary and political potential of the occasional genre" (from LAPH).

• The death of Tydeus (Th. 8.757-762) has an analogue in Livy's account of the aftermath of Cannae (22.51.9). In the Thebaid, the Argives are frequently mapped onto defeated Romans, while in tragic mode the Thebans take on Roman roles. In contrast with Silius Italicus, Statius takes bits and pieces of history and puts them into new contexts.

• Statius' supposed crypto-Christianity stems from Dante's psychological reading of the Thebaid, in which civil war results from a denial of faith. This stems in turn from a political-psychological reading of Flavian literature, in which repression (in Harold Bloom's concept of "anxiety of influence") prevents discussion of current events. The poem becomes a reaction to Virgil.

McAuley, Mairéad, "Ambiguus sexus: Epic Masculinity in Transition in Statius' Achilleid," Akroterion 55 (2010) 37-60
• "The complex post-Ovidian representation of gender in the Achilleid bears implications for our understanding of Roman epic as a genre. As Achilles struggles toward his literary destiny as the ultimate Homeric warrior, the poem's allusive exploration of gender ultimately reorients the tense relationship of the epic hero to women and amor, and of the epic genre to its own institutionalized masculinity," (from LAPH).

Silv. 3.5 and 4.4 and Pliny (Ep. 6.16 and 6.20) used the epistolary form instead of epic to create a consoling perspective. Both poets largely avoid the themes of portents and the anger of the gods and blur the boundaries between poetry and history, fiction and plain-speaking. In contrast, Martial 4.44 uses the Hellenistic genre of epideictic epigram.

Pagán, V.E., "The Power of the Epistolary Preface from Statius to Pliny," Classical Quarterly 60.1 (2010) 194-201
• "In form, tone, and content, Epist. 3.5 resembles the epistolary prefaces to Statius' Silvae to such a degree that the resemblance may be more than coincidental. Statius appends an epistolary preface, each of which rehearses the contents of the book, to each of the first four books of the Silvae. Both letters and prefaces are highly stylized literary forms whose traditional conventions and rigid structures legitimate overt posturing and self-fashioning," (from LAPH).

By exposing the difficulties inherent in retelling a dream, Statius demonstrates sympathy with the female perspective on the war that constitutes the central action of his poem and foreshadows the subsequent inadequacy of words in reaction to its horror," (from LAPH).

• "Despite its relatively high incidence, fatherlessness presented a social challenge to young aristocratic Roman men who aspired to a political career. Such men often negotiated this challenge by associating themselves with paternal surrogates who had no familial connection to them. The rhetorical strategies used by Statius (Silv. 5.2, an encomium to the fatherless Crispinus) and by Pliny the Younger in his Letters to assert the legitimacy of the political aspirations of the fatherless are explored. Anthropological studies of shared parenthood and fosterage in West African states provide valuable parallels."

Achilles plate from the Kaiseraugst treasure. Although the surviving book of the Achilleid concerns the pre-Troy years, Statius' real focus was the Trojan War itself.

• "Statius (Th. 12.177-179), Valerius Flaccus (1.749 ff.), and Silius Italicus (2.675-680) all offer up depictions of female characters who take their own lives. But unlike their literary sisters, whose suicides are an aspect of or the result of their gender, the Flavian epic heroines commit suicide despite their gender. These episodes owe more to the historical accounts of suicide in the Julio-Claudian era than to their epic predecessors. This connection may account for why these suicides seem overtly political in their opposition to tyranny. The negative depiction of female suicide may also be indicative of a cultural backlash against the kinds of political suicides prominent in the 1st cent. A.D."

• Although S. 1.1, 1.6, and 4.1-3 attribute positive virtues to Domitian, they focus on his power and its effects, or his divine nature, but almost never on the man himself. Domitian himself appears only twice. He does not interact or converse with his subjects, and is physically isolated. This coincides with the picture drawn by ancient historians of a Domitian who shunned the public eye.

Statian epic shows a tendency to provide different versions of a story. For example, the discussion of Tydeus at 2.482-743 is repeated by Tydeus himself in Book 3. Similarly, 6.242-248 retells 4.746-765.

Nagle, R., "Statius' Horatian Lyrics, Silvae 4.5 and 4.7," The Classical World 102.2 (2009): 143-57
• Statius makes use of Horatian forms and motifs, such as the simple house in the country and the literary help of a friend, but his tone is fervent and sincere, rather than dry and ironic. Statius is also fully aware of Horace's generic choices, but makes different choices for his own work with no apparent anxiety. With many literary allusions, the poor and humble poet praises the wealth and public accomplishments of Septimius Severus and Vibius Maximus, and at the same time shows how like-minded they are in their attitudes to literature, friendship, and wealth.

In the process, he manipulates our reading of these texts."

• 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, Statius subordinates the motif of domestic treachery associated with Amphiaraus so as to give full importance to his moment of truth at the taking of the auspices at Argos (Theb. 3.449-496). Three aspects of this episode in relation to the Greek and Roman epic tradition are considered: the forms of divination practiced by Melampus and Amphiaraus, the nature of the portent sent to them by the gods, and the reaction of both prophet and poet to human foreknowledge of evil destiny."

• Statius ceates a enw form of feminin in the Thebaid: the virile woman who puts her courage to the service of her spouse. This is in contrast to the normally passive women in epic.

Gärtner, Thomas, "Selbstmord in der römischen Epik der Nachaugusteischen Zeit," Acta Antiqua Academiae Scientiarum Hungaricae 48.3-4 (2008) 365-385
• Comparison of suicide in different authors. In Lucan (4.520-574) the fanatical, furor-like suicide of the Caesarians is a way out of a desperate situation. Suicide in Valerius Flaccus presents itself as a rationally planned act, which serves to attain personal peace. Statius is particularly familiar with defiant suicide, through which the powerless individual expresses his inner autonomy vis-à-vis the mighty tyrant. Silius Italicus had all these types in mind and combined them. With him, however, the moral judgment is overlaid by his strong bias in favor of the Romans.

Gärtner, Thomas, "Der Epilog zur Thebais des Statius," Würzburger Jahrbücher für die Altertumswissenschaft 32 (2008): 137-57.
• In the concluding verses, Statius uses Lucan 9.980-986, in which the emulation of Homer is changed to Virgil, although his citation of Ovid does harken back to Homer. Comparison is made to the self-imitation in Silv. 4.7.

• There is remarkable structural symmetry between Aen. 1.1-304 and Theb. 1.1-311, but Statius alerts his readers also to a significant contrast between the two epics. Examination of other passages in the Thebaid (e.g., 1.336-341 and 1.390-400) shows Statius' pessimism.

Hulls, Jean-Michel, "Raising one's standards? Domitian as model in Ammianus 14.1.10," AClass 51 (2008): 117-24
• Ammianus describes Gallus at 14.1.10 as "raising the standards of his obstinacy". The unusual phrase is framed by a double allusion to Aen. 2.304-307 and 2.496-499 and must be a reference to a description of the emperor Domitian at Statius S. 4.2. Whereas Ammianus' normal practice in alluding to Statius is to use him simply as a repository of arresting phraseology, here he makes a more pronounced political point through intertextual allusion.

• Generally speaking, the value of uirtus deteriorates over time. In Statius, it is often flawed and becomes morally oscillating, also as a personification. Moreover, it is missing in episodes where one would expect its positive mention. Successful uirtus seems only possible in the private sphere, performed by women, in the context of burial, as a manifestation of religion and humanity. The increasing awareness of the ambiguity of moral values is matched, especially in the Thebaid, by the emphasis on the ambiguity of reality as a whole.

• "By recalling the beginning of Seneca's Phaedra at the end of his epic, Statius creates a strong link between the two texts, which also implies themes such as the importance of Athens and Theseus in Theb. 12; the problem of family conflicts in both the poets; and the status of epic genre."

• "Silv. 3.5 and Plin. Epist. 4.19 are stylized as private communications, addressed to two female characters, each of whom embodies the ideal of an honorable wife. Both Statius and Pliny praise the moral qualities of their wives, and, in addition, of two other female figures. Yet by defining all of these women's existence completely in terms of their relationships with men, the authors transform their depiction of the women into an extensive portrayal of themselves. This demonstrates how private and public facets of genres that purport to be occasional or even ephemeral are interconnected. It is precisely the epideictic character of such texts that cautions against reading them as realistic descriptions of their authors' lives."

Such a theme illustrates and promotes the central concerns of each poem."

• Statius' Thebaid is indebted not only to Met. 3.1-4 and 605, but also to the larger literary and imperial programs of the Metamorphoses. Statius' descriptions are examined in relation both to the architectural settings of the Metamorphoses and contemporary architectural programs. Particular focus is on the layout, decoration, and use-patterns of the royal households of Thebes (1.46-52, 7.243-252, and 8.607-654) and Argos (1.386-536), as well as on the palace-temples of Jupiter, Mars, and Dis (1.197-212, 7.40-63, and 8.21-83) in conjunction with their Ovidian and contemporary imperial models.

They also recall the dawn opening of Iliad 19 and the Homeric system of metaphors and symbols comparing the hero's return into battle to the arrival of light and dawn. The genitor coruscae lucis in th ethird passage can be identified as Jupiter.

Allusions to Pindar, N. 10, 1-18; Sophocles, El. 504-515; and Virgil, Aen. 7.789-792, among others, let the parade be read on a number of levels."

• "The figure of Orpheus can be put together with the idea of the uates to explore the poetics of the Silvae. Statius struggles to be a serious and political poet. Orpheus is a reflection of both the power and the powerlessness of poetry: the poet and the patron in the world of the Silvae have intermittent power over the natural world, but neither has control over grief. The Orpheus of Statius's poems of lament is a voiceless vates: the effectiveness of poetry in the world is severely limited. Poems considered are 2.2-2.7, 3.1, 5.1, 5.3, and 5.5.

• In Statius' Achilleid love becomes the central experience in relation to the development of the young Achilles. The rape of Deidamia at Ach. 1.560-592 symbolizes the determining link of the ephebic transition, that is, of the evolution of the hero's personality. The violence of the stuprum represents the result of the seduction tactics recommended by Ovid in his Ars, but at the same time mark the departure from such strategies.

Turner, Andrew, "Frontinus and Domitian: laus principis in the Strategemata," Harvard Studies in Classical Philology 103 (2007): 423-49
• No conclusions can be drawn about Frontinus' true opinion of Domitian on the basis of the Strategemata alone. The laus of Domitian in Frontinus' Strategemata does not substantiate the claims of Pliny, Paneg. 54, 3-4 that under such tyrannous emperors sycophantic praise was all-pervasive in speeches made by senators. It also provides a strong contrast to the types of praise found in the works of contemporary professional poets, such as Statius' Silvae or Martial.

Wray, David Lamar, "Wood: Statius's Silvae and the poetics of genius," Arethusa 40.2 (2007): 127-43
• The various meanings of silua in Statius contain a more robust notion of poetic value than has been accepted. At Silv. 1.3.13-19 Statius seems to use ingenium to mean not just native wit but also native matter, thus drawing ingenium into the semantic range covered by Latin silua when it calques on Greek hyle.

Zeiner, N.K., "Perfecting the Ideal: Molding Roman Women in Statius's Silvae," Arethusa 40.2 (2007): 165-81
• Statius creates portraits of Violentilla (Silv. 1.2) and Priscilla (5.1) that both reflect these historical figures and embody the feminine ideals appropriate to the celebratory occasions and poetic genres in which they appear. Statius exploits his feminine constructs to fulfill his primary poetic purpose, namely to create distinction (symbolic capital) for the poems' male addressees.

• An examination of 17th-19th century commentaries' interpretations of the origins of the spring Dirce (Theb. 1.38-40, 3.204-205, 4.374-377) and the genesis of the Spartoi (Theb. 3.180-183, 4.440-442) illustrate the usefulness of early modern commentaries in modern discussions. "The various and contrasting attitudes of the exegetical tradition show that the complex interweaving that is characteristic of Statius' poem cannot be reduced to a rigid system."

• Im Rahmen der Schullektüre von der Spätantike bis ins späte Mittelalter vertritt die oft gelesene und abgeschriebene Achilleis das Epos. Sie machte mit dem im ganzen Mittelalter bekannten und für Allegorien beliebten Trojanischen Krieg vertraut und stellte wegen des manierierten Stils an das Textverständnis hohe Anforderungen. Ein Vergleich der insgesamt 116 Verse aus beiden Büchern der Achilleis in der neu gefundenen Handschrift mit neueren textkritischen Ausgaben ergibt, dass die Qualität des Textes recht gut ist.

• "Comparison is made to the use of recusatio by Callimachus and the Augustan poets with Flavian poets such as Valerius Flaccus, Statius, and Martial. Recusatio was still widely used in Flavian poetry to highlight the poet's choices in terms of style, theme, and genre ; and his attitude toward the emperor."

Newlands, C., "Book-Ends: Statius Silvae 2.1 and 2.7," Ramus 35.1 (2006): 63-77
• "The first and last poems of Silv. 2 (1, on the death of a child of low birth, and 7, on the death of Lucan) have been dismissed as wearisomely rhetorical and have been largely overlooked in scholarship on consolationes as they endorse lamentation, elaborate upon it, and thus run counter to philosophical strictures against overt grief. Issues of class also surely play a role in their dismissal as trivial poems. A proper understanding of the social circumstances in which these poems are embedded, however, will show that they can offer insight into contemporary Flavian society."

Newlands, Carole Elizabeth, "Mothers in Statius's Poetry: Sorrows and Surrogates," Helios 33.2 (2006): 203-26
• Despite the reverence for the idea of the mother in Roman society, there are no ideal mothers in the poetry of Statius. In the Silvae, Statius envisages an alternative family structure in which men usurp women's traditional role of childrearing. Examples include Theb. 3.135-146, 9.360-362. and 12.791-793; Silv. 3.3.119-121, 5.2.75-79, 5.3.64-66 and 241-245, 5.5.81-85; and other passages.

• The topos of the Theomachia (Il. 20-21) appears in four Latin epics. Petronius and Silius try to reproduce the Homeric schems. Virgil renews the topos into political allegory. Statius accentuates the anthropomorphism to enhance the hero Capaneus.

• "By celebrating luxury and aestheticizing power, Martial and Statius suggested a cultural and political role for themselves as poets in the service of the imperator. Luxury was culturally legitimized and revealed its functionality as a political instrument not of disintegration (the traditional accusation of moralists) but of social cohesion. By aestheticizing power, Flavian encomiastic poetry moderated the severity of power and masked its aggressive characteristics. Flavian poetry shows that the reformulated language of the encomium, the product of the foreign political culture of Hellenistic monarchies, could be an instrument for the legitimization of autocratic power."

• Examples of the Flavian desire to out-exemplify the virtues of simplicity and poverty. In Statius, the mention of the pauperis arua Molorchi is an anti-exemplum of humble hospitality, showing dominion over nature.

Keith, A., "Ovid's Theban narrative in Statius' Thebaid," in D. Nelis, ed., Aetas Ovidiana, Hermathena 177-178 (2004-2005): 181-208
• Statius acknowledges his interest in Ovid's Metamorphoses in the prolog to his Thebaid where he reviews the history of Thebes that he will not narrate (1.4-17). The subjects he eschews constitute the core of Ovid's Theban narrative (Met. 2.836-834 and 603). The affiliation of the poems is not limited to theme. The Thebaid can be interpreted, in part, as an exploration of the themes, settings, characters, and literary genealogy of Ovid's narrative.

Silv. 2.4 and 2.5 rewrite Ovid for the Flavian age, placing a positive value on luxury and withdrawal. Drawing on the traditions of the fable, Statius can be seen as a new authoritative voice that locates social criticism in praise itself.

Parkes, Ruth, "Model Youths? Achilles and Parthenopaeus in Claudian's Panegyrics on the Third and Fourth Consulships of Honorius," Illinois Classical Studies 30 (2005): 67-82
• Examination of the parallels between Statius' poetry and Claudian's poems on the third and fourth consulships of Honorius allows us to appreciate the coherence and cleverness of Claudian's overall strategy in writing panegyric to a young emperor with little in the way of achievements. Claudian's solution involves the sustained evocation of characters from Statius' Thebaid and Achilleid in his characterization of Honorius. Attention is thereby particularly drawn to the emperor's youth, which is held out as an excuse for inachievement, a sign of future promise, and the reason for the regency of Claudian's patron Stilicho.

The death may thus be read within a framework of boy versus man, and couched within terms of femininity; that is, his feminization underscores his lack of masculinity. The imagery usually associated with elegy (snow-white countenance, hairlessness, languid appearance) enhances the intimations of erotic beauty.

• Three landscapes that illustrate the Thebaid's debt to Ovid are the sacred grove of Diana (4.419-442), the Nemean grove (Books 4-6), and the river landscape of the Ismenos (9.360-373). These landscapes are disconnected from the gods and provide a canvas on which Statius displays the evil of the war. Humans are held accountable for the destruction of the state as much as for the loss of a paradise described in Ovidian terms as a locus amoenus.

• In the Thebaid, constant repetition of the foundation narrative is mimetic both of that foundation and of the repetition of its attendant fratricide. It is suggested that the poem is exploring Roman themes, a suggestion supported by the conscious parallelism with Romulus and again by intertextuality.

• The opening of the Theb. Gives two themes: power and conflict, with the former causing the latter, and hence potestas in Statius is always in the nominative, always causative. Discussion of the term potestas in the epic, particularly at 1.150-51, but also at 1.187-188, 2.399, 11.654-56, and 5.324-325. The link between power and conflict was informed by the events of 69, and hence Statius uses nuda potestas to show that the power of the tyrants leads to the cruelty.

• The six books of the second half of the Thebaid contain the deaths of the Argive heros. The final book is a change from this, discussing the women and funerals. It is possible that Statius' wife Claudia inspired making the end a eulogy of spouses. This is an interruption of Statius' original plan and is the reason that the final book does not being closure.

• Statius' reworking, at Silv. 4.4.49-55, of Geo. 1.424-437 demonstrates Statius' genius at using occasions as starting points for poetic creativity that ventured beyond the moment.

Liddell, Erik, "The Figure of Orpheus in Silvae 2.7, the Genethliacon Lucani ad Pollam," New England Classical Newsletter 30.1 (2003): 22-32
• Statius uses the story of Orpheus and Eurydice as a point of comparison for the story of Lucan and Polla, and the poem must be read in this light.

Lorenz, Sven, "Martial, Herkules und Domitian: Büsten, Statuetten und Statuen im Epigrammaton liber nonus," Mnemosyne Ser. 4 56.5 (2003): 566-84
• Martial 9.43 and 44 on a statuette of Hercules owned by the patron Novius Vindex (also mentioned in Statius Silv. 4.6) tell us something about Martial's relationship with Statius and about patronage in the age of Domitian. Martial shows how even the lowest genre of poetry can serve as panegyric literature for the sublime emperor Domitian.

• Statius proposes two places to begin his poem, one infernal, the other olympian. Statius ignores the tragic tradition which has Oedipus cursing his sons. Rather, the causality is purely human. The lines 1.46-311 have an intermediary position between the prologue and the narration. There are thus two beginnings: 1.46 and 1.312.

• Statius' education by his father and familiarity with Greek literature (described in Silv. 5.3), when compared with surviving Latin commentaries and school curricula for Greek literature, suggests that the poet's works were heavily influenced by the Greek literary tradition. More than other Silver Latin writers, Statius' writings should be diligently read for their Greek sources and their Greek intertextualities.

• The final passage of Theb. 12.797-807 performs the same function for the poet and poem that the burial and aftermath rituals within the poem do for the Theban casualties and survivors: it occupies the nexus between what has gone before (composition) and what will follow (reading), allowing the poet to reflect backward upon his work and to look forward to its future.

• Virgil tries to resuscitate the hero. The Ilias latina revalorises Paris. Silius Italicus has a moral lens, contrasting the choice of Paris (uoluptas) with Scipio (uirtus). In Statius, the antitheses of Paris and Achilles leads to uituperatio.

Heinrich, Alan John, "Longa retro series: Sacrifice and Repetition in Statius' Menoeceus Episode," Arethusa 32.2 (1999): 165-95
• In the Thebaid, Statius actively resists presenting a coherent world, projecting instead a world whose violence challenges our understanding. This is shown in Menoeceus' self-sacrifice in 10.748-751 and 10.765-772, which defies traditional narrative technique through repetition, demotion from integral unit to digression, and presentation as a failed deuotio through juxtaposition with the Capaneus episode (10.879-882). The work repeatedly undermines its own claim (1.15-17) that it will exclude the Theban past.

Gilder, Richard, III, "Goddesses Unbound: Furies and Furial Imagery in the Works of Seneca, Lucan, and Statius," PhD Dissertation, Univ. of Pennsylvania, 1997
• A study of the Furies challenges the assessment that early imperial poets were sycophants and derivative of Virgil. Seneca, Lucan, and Statius increased the power of the Furies and simultaneously decreased the power of Jupiter and the other gods. This is an implicit condemnation of the emperor. In the Thebaid, the Furies emerge as the most powerful divinities.

• Catullus followed the Alexandrian mannerism of repeating a word in the same line with two different metrical values at 64.37 (Pharsaliam; Pharsalia). The same use of "Pharsalia"with a short second "a" found in Calpurnius Siculus 4.101 is simply unmetrical and needs emendation, but Statius' use of the form at Ach. 1.152 offers an intertextual reference to Catullus and so confirms the unusual scansion.

• The story is not just derived from the epic tradition, but also serves to underscore the theme of Pietas. The lengthy narrative has roots in epic tradition. The examination of a character's personal history provides a sympathetic response to her.

Wheeler, Stephen M., "The Underworld Opening of Claudian's De raptu Proserpinae," Transactions and Proceedings of the American Philological Association 125 (1995): 113-34
• Claudian's allusion in the poem's opening to the conventions of martial epic through parallelism with the beginning of Statius, Theb. 8 is part of a program to epicize his erotic material and conversely eroticize his epic models. This conflation reflects on a stylistic level the symbolic equivalence between martial and erotic violence that enables the rape of Proserpina to be a sacrificial substitute for war between Pluto and Jupiter.

Statius introduced new elements to this literary form: 1. positive employment of epic techniques; 2. application of words and motifs used in love poetryand insertion of fictional love story; 3. influence of pastoral poetry; 4. creation of a special function of Venus as coniugator and pronuba. All these elements also appear in the epithalamia of Claudian who also has an important place in the tradition and became a model to his successors in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries."

• The double-ending of the Thebaid (Books 11 and 12) reflects the duality and constant tension of the poem. Given its structural importance, the whole poem should be read in the light of the dual ending.

The play between mythic and real time gives realism to the myth and gives Stella and Violentilla an exemplary dimension. Models of Flavian ideology, they become a synthesis of ancient and modern virtues.

• The poet identifies himself with Orpheus. The poem invokes more Mercury than Somnus, asking not for sleep but death. It is possible that the death of a loved one (likely his wife) was the inspiration.

Mendelsohn, D., "Empty Nest, Abandoned Cave: Maternal Anxiety in Achilleid I," ClAnt 9 (1990): 295-308
• Parallel treatment of maternal and marital anxieties. The depiction of this uneasy heroine provides a foil for her son's relationship with Deidamia, which will again aggravate the tensions.

• Using items from the episode of Drances and Turnus (Aen. 11.343-375), Statius constructs episodes of dissidence (1.171 ff., 3.92-3, 3.216, 10.580-3). Drances suggests feelings hostile to tyranny.

• Silius 8.209 could have come from Catullus 68.8 because of the way Statius read it. Silv. 3.5.1-2 contaminates the texts of Silius and Catullus. An echo of this is found in Focas, through Ausonius, Epic. In patr. 29-30, which comes directly from Statius.

• Epic poets make extensive use of verbal links between poetic comparisons and surrounding narrative. This may be an exact verbal repetition or a synonym. Valerius Flaccus and S. make a particular effort to link the comparison with context. Ovid does not use repetition as often as Statius. 71 of the 79 extended similes in the Aeneid have such a link.

Townend, G.B., "The Literary Substrata to Juvenal's Satires," Journal of Roman Studies 63 (1973): 148-160
• Juvenal makes frequent allusions to Martial, Statius and Calpurnius Siculus, especially in Sat. 1 and 7. Juvenal often satirizes, parodies, or undercuts the apparent sincerity of his own words. In Sat. 4, he experiments with a new type of satire, juxtaposing echoes from the critical record of Tacitus' Histories with those from the panegyric of Statius' De bello germanico. Juvenal's lack of success may be due to his belief that his readers would recognize a wide range of references.

• Emphasis on clementia in Th.12 results from the contemporary political situation. While the poem deals with man as tragic victim, the Ara Clementiae is a source of consolation. In contrast to traditional usage, clementia is not defined as the perogative of an injured party, but can be offered by a disinterested third person.

Aricò, G., "Sulle tracce di una poetica staziana," BStudLat 1 (1971): 217-239
• 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.

The only reason for dating LP to the end of the 4th century is that he is not mentioned by Jerome. Donatus refers to him in his commentary on Terence.
