      No dry wicks, no peeled onion-skins? Statius wonders what province Domitian will pick for Crispinus and thanks him for attending his Achilleid recitations. Dilke, Cambridgewhich has more recently been reprinted with a new introduction Bristol Let your Urban Cohorts, prompt to salute the standard, The lawyers who often flock to you to protest at courts In turmoil, and citizens who don the toga in far cities, Whose cries implore your justice everywhere, compete In joy; let the seven hills of Rome, follow each other, In ringing celebration, and let dark rumour fall silent. Or is it more soothing to thy heart that thou seest homesteads desolate, and the countryside lit up by the burning roofs of husbandmen?

      During this period at Naples, Statius maintained his relations with the court and his patrons, earning himself another invitation to a palace banquet Silv. Virgil Georg. In 7, Jupiter urges the Argives to march on Thebes where battle breaks out during which Amphiaraus is swallowed in the earth. White is her hair and white her snood.

      Lend me your hearing, and I will recount the tale. No alien chief, whose warfare keeps faith with no man, is restlessly harrying the Campanian lands; nor is a Nero bridling the rapids, hewing down hills, and filling up discoloured marshes. Urged by no ignorant fear, but under stress of dire calamity, the Argive folk aforetime made this offering. Let whoever leaves Tivoli at daybreak Sail the Lucrine Lake in early evening. Now let your right hands be joined to pledge your hearts.

The Silvae of Statius book

Already the Senate is happy to nurture you fondly in its robes Fringed with purple, joys in promising you every curule chair.

What joys my mind recalls, What a host of wonders to weary the dazzled eyes? Thou art a goddess of the deep, but I too am inspired by Phoebus. Whoso at daybreak leaves the Tiber may sail the Lucrine at nightfall.

I merge sky and earth in marriage when rain thins the cloud. This horse loyal to the bit, Will know no other rein, serving one star alone.

What space for my anxious prayers among the crowds Of senators and others? In The Silvae of Statius book cooling breeze do you elude the summer sun? Swifter forthwith and more eager is the journeying; forthwith even the horses delight in the speed, as when the arms of the rowers tire and the breezes first begin to fan the sails.

Tantalus was king of Argos, though in some legends king of Lydia or Phrygia. No bar is there to your desire, nought to delay. Bellona brings from the vessel amid uplifted torches a new daughter-in-law to Priam; already I see the Ionian and Aegean seas pressed by a thousand keels; nor does it suffice that all the country of the Grecians conspires with the proud sons of Atreus, soon will my Achilles be sought for by land and sea, ay, and himself will wish to follow them.

Those of Oenomaus, king of Pisa, used to devour the suitors to the hand of his daughter Hippodamia whom he defeated in a chariot-race. Your voice is cheerful though the Forum roars, While your eloquence itself is not for sale, And your sword sits quietly in its sheath Unless your friends summon you to draw it.

They seem like troops of Amazons In heat, by Tanais or wild Phasis. Neue Folge. The doorposts are green with leaves, the crossroads lit, And the busiest streets of spreading Rome rejoice.

With her own hand his mother snatched Palaemon from the curved back of his straying dolphin steed and pressed him to her bosom. Many a wide and wicked realm hast thou, that can better suffer the crimes of offending sons. In 7, Jupiter urges the Argives to march on Thebes where battle breaks out during which Amphiaraus is swallowed in the earth.

Earlier critics in the 19th and 20th century considered the poem a piece of elaborate flattery that vindicated the regime of Domitian; however, more recent scholars have viewed the poem as a subversive work that criticizes the authoritarianism and violence of the Flavians by focusing on extreme violence and social chaos.

Troy would not have held this horse, not though the walls were razed, not though the throng of boys and virgin girls, led by Aeneas himself and mighty Hector, tried to drag it within. Ganiban, Randall T.

Whom else did the Centaur take in hand and shape his rude beginnings and tender years? But why by speaking do I delay the weapons of thy might? Cyllene in Arcadia. My eyes were not satisfied with any swift appraisal.Statius, author of The Penguin Book of Homosexual Verse, on LibraryThing.
