Notes on Statius

Extract

The Silvae of Statius have had good editing, in particular from Phillimore in the Oxford text. There is also the large commentary of Vollmer, which is very useful from the historical point of view, though not from the literary. But the most consistently valuable aid to the student seems to me to be the London Delphin edition of 1824 (Valpy), which not only gives most of the comments of the two best critics of Statius, N. Heinsius and Markland, but also offers the most consistently reliable translation of the work that I know.
