De Raptu Proserpinae


Claudian was one of the last great Latin poets of the classical tradition, writing in the fourth century A.D. This simplified text of his poem, De Raptu Prosperpinae, has a facing-page translation to make the work more accessible to non-specialists. This book sets Claudian in his rightful place as a distinctive creative writer of late antiquity with the roots of the whole classical tradition before him. In addition to an incisive commentary, the book includes a text designed to simplify Hall's apparatus.
