The Thebaid : seven against Thebes by P. Papinius Statius( )

13 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An epic story of fratricide and war, the Thebaid retells the legendary conflict between the sons of Oedipus - Polynices and Eteocles - for control of the city of Thebes. The Latin poet Statius chose to rework a familiar tale from Greek myth, dramatized long before by Aeschylus in his tragedy Seven against Thebes. Published in A.D. 92, the Thebaid was an immediate success, and its fame grew in succeeding centuries. It reached its peak of popularity in the later Middle Ages and the Renaissance, influencing Dante, Chaucer, and quite possibly Shakespeare. More recently, however, it has received less attention that it deserves, in large part because there has been no accessible, dynamic translation of the work into English." "Charles Stanley Ross offers a version of the Thebaid rendered into modern English. In a wide-ranging introduction, Ross provides an overview of the poem's composition, reception, and legacy; major themes and literary influences; and place in Statius's life. And in a series of notes, he offers background information on major characters and incidents."--Jacket
