Product description


"This monograph is a refreshing contribution to Claudian scholarship which serves to reveal the complex literary qualities which make his political poetry successful. Ware shows an expert ability to interweave careful presentation of the allusions and intertexts layered by Claudian with accessible guidance to poetry which has, too often, been treated solely as a historical and political source."
Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"Ware has written an excellent book that, instead of trying to look through the literary to the historical, focuses on the literary and on how a poet represents the historical. Those interested in Claudian, the period in which he wrote, and epic poetry will find much of value in it."
Scott McGill, The Journal of Roman Studies

Book Description

Panegyrist of the emperor Honorius and propagandist of Stilicho, the late antique poet Claudian has traditionally been the preserve of historians rather than literary critics. This book examines Claudian as epic poet and literary successor of Virgil, showing how he presented contemporary events in terms of classical epic.
