Family in Flavian epic
edited by Nikoletta Manioti
Leiden ; Brill, 2016
Family in Flavian Epic' examines the treatment of family bonds in Valerius Flaccus' 'Argonautica', Statius' 'Thebaid' and 'Achilleid', and Silius Italicus' 'Punica'. The eleven contributions consider the representation of epic parents, children, siblings, and spouses, and their interaction with each other, demonstrating the Flavian poets' engagement with their epic, and more generally literary, tradition. At the same time, Roman attitudes towards the family and Flavian concerns especially related to dynastic harmony and civil war also characterise both historical and mythological members of Flavian epic families.

The Hellenica Oxyrhynchia and historiography : new research perspectives
Occhipinti, Egidia, author
Leiden ; Brill, [2016]
The HO in the view of modern scholars -- Part 1 -- The work and the reader -- Spartan motivations : the HO and Xenophon -- Diodorus, the HO and Xenophon : a reassessment -- Part 2 -- The HO and Athenian Polypragmosyne -- Terra Marique -- Historiography and hegemony -- Historical causation -- "Moralism" in historiography -- Appendix 1: A new supplement for lines 31-32 of the Theramenes Papyrus (P. Mich. 5982) -- Appendix 2: History, oratory and their audiences -- Appendix 3: Diodorus and Rome -- Appendix 4: Translations -- Index of names -- Thematic index.

"This book involves a new historiographical study of the Hellenica Oxyrhynchia that defines its relationship with fifth- and fourth-century historical works as well as its role as a source of Diodorus' Bibliotheke. The traditional and common approach taken by those who studied the HO is primarily historical: scholars have focused on particular, often isolated, topics such as the question of the authorship, the historical perspective of the HO against other Hellenica from the 4th century BC. This book is unconventional in that it offers a study of the HO and fifth- and fourth-century historical works supported by papyrological enquiries and literary strategies, such as intertextuality and narratology, which will undoubtedly contribute to the progress of research in ancient historiography"--Provided by publisher.

Flavian Epic
edited by Antony Augoustakis
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2016
The epics of the three Flavian poets-Silius Italicus, Statius, and Valerius Flaccus-have, in recent times, attracted the attention of scholars, who have re-evaluated the particular merits of Flavian poetry as far more than imitation of the traditional norms and patterns. Drawn from sixty years of scholarship, this edited collection is the first volume to collate the most influential modern academic writings on Flavian epic poetry, revised and updated to provide both scholars and students alike with a broad yet comprehensive overview of the field. A wide range of topics receive coverage, and analysis and interpretation of individual poems are integrated throughout. The plurality of the critical voices included in the volume presents a much-needed variety of approaches, which are used to tackle questions of intertextuality, gender, poetics, and the social and political context of the period. In doing so, the volume demonstrates that by engaging in a complex and challenging intertextual dialogue with their literary predecessors, the innovative epics of the Flavian poets respond to contemporary needs, expressing overt praise, or covert anxiety, towards imperial rule and the empire.

Aeneid 5 : text, translation and commentary
Virgil, author
Leiden ; Brill, 2015
Virgil's Aeneid 5 has long been among the more neglected sections of the poet's epic of Augustan Rome. Book 5 opens the second movement of the poem, the middle section of the Aeneid that sees the Trojans poised between the old world of Phrygia and the new destiny in Italy. The present volume fills a significant gap in Virgilian studies by offering the first full-scale commentary in any language on this key book in the explication of the poet's grand consideration of the meaning of Trojan versus Roman identity. A new critical text (based on first hand examination of the manuscripts) is accompanied by a prose translation and detailed commentary. The notes provide in depth analysis of literary, historical, and lexical matters; the introduction situates Book 5 both in the context of the epic and the larger tradition of heroic poetry.
