      1 SILVAE By Publius Papinius Statius ( A.D.) Translated by William Thomas Sherman [email protected] Prefatory Note As much as for any other reason, this present translation of Statius’ Silvae was undertaken in an effort to expand and improve my knowledge of Latin, myself having becoming a student of that language. The purpose of this brief paper is to consider some facets of a single poem {Silvae, IV, 5), with the aim of shedding light on certains of Statius' methods and attitudes. The poem selected for discussion is uncharacteristic, as it is the only one of the five books of Silvae that is composed in the alcaic allmusictrends.com by: 2.

      The ninth and last poem in Book 4 of the Silvae is an amusing hendecasyllabic piece in which Statius, addressing Plotius Grypus, reproves him for having sent him for the Saturnalia a tatty, second-hand copy of a boring book in return for the fine, expensive, new volume which was Statius' present to him.
