Claudian: De Raptu Proserpinae by Claudian

Book Description

An exhaustive study of Claudian's unfinished mythological epic, with a text, apparatus criticus, and commentary. The long introduction begins with a catalogue of manuscripts; and this leads to an investigation into the manuscript tradition and the history of the poem's transmission. Dr Hall then surveys the most important printed editions of the poem. He examines various theories of dating and discusses the sources of the story. He concludes the introduction with a brief critical assessment of the form and style of the poem. Dr Hall establishes his text after an examination of all the extant manuscripts. The apparatus, though very full, is selective in that it records readings of younger manuscripts only when they offer something new. It also ignores trifling corruptions. The commentary is similarly selective. In general, it discusses everything relevant to the establishing of the text and ignores points of purely mythological and literary interest.

Panegyricus de Sexto Consulatu Honorii Augusti by Claudian Panegyricus de Sexto Consulatu Honorii Augusti, Hardback (December 1996)

This is an edition of Claudian's poem which celebrates the defeat of Alarci the Visigoth's first invasion of Italy (402 AD). This book provides an analysis of the historical background and of Claudian's language, style, imagery, and use of a wide range of other Greek and Latin sources.

De Raptu Prosperpinae by Claudian De Raptu Prosperpinae, Hardback (February 1993)

A simplified text of the poem, with a facing-page translation to make the work accessible to non-specialists. The book aims to set Claudian in place as a distinctive creative writer of late antiquity with the roots of the whole classical tradition before him.

Works by Claudian Works, Hardback (December 1922)

Claudius Claudianus (c. 370 c. 410 CE) gives us important knowledge of Honorius s time and displays poetic as well as rhetorical skill, command of language, and diversity. A panegyric on the brothers Probinus and Olybrius (consuls together in 395 CE) was followed mostly by epics in hexameters, but also by elegiacs, epistles, epigrams, and idylls.
