Overview

Claudian, the Latin poet of great affairs, flourished during the joint reigns of the brothers Honorius, the Emperor in the West, and Arcadius, ruler in the East. Though a pagan, he became a professional court-poet, composing for Christian rulers panegyrics that have given us important knowledge of Honorius’ times. Claudian also composed a celebrated mythological epic on the ‘Rape of Proserpina’, which was left unfinished, but has been noted for its command of language and polished style. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Claudius’ complete extant works, with relevant illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
