Statius, P. Papinius (Publius Papinius)
Rome -- History -- Domitian, 81-96 -- Poetry; Latin poetry.; Occasional verse, Latin - History and criticism.
"Statius' Silvae, thirty-two occasional poems, were written probably between 89 and 96 A.D. Here the poet congratulates friends, consoles mourners, sends thanks, admires a monument or artistic object, describes a memorable scene. The verse is light in touch, with a distinct picture quality. Statius gives us in these impromptu poems clear images of Domitian's Rome."--BOOK JACKET.
