  1. Some Aspects Of The Structure Of The Phaethon Episode In Ovid's Metamorphoses.R. C. Bass - 1977 - Classical Quarterly 27 (2):402-408.
    Although scholars have expended increasing efforts over the last twenty years or so in either detecting or establishing large structural and thematic units within Ovid's perpetuum carmen, little attention, as far as I am aware, has been directed towards the evident care taken by Ovid in his arrangement of material within individual episodes, and the resultant over-all structure of those episodes. The aim of the present paper is to focus attention upon a single episode to which Ovid seems to have (...)

  • Transforming Arma Virvmqve: Syntactical, Morphological and Metrical Dis-Membra-Ment in Statius’ Thebaid.Helen E. B. Dalton - 2020 - Classical Quarterly 70 (1):286-309.

  • The ‘Argonautic’ Expedition of the Argives: Models of Heroism in Statius' Thebaid.Ruth Parkes - 2014 - Classical Quarterly 64 (2):778-786.
    While Statius' decision to treat events in landlocked Thebes offered limited opportunity to integrate into his poem a maritime episode, which had become a staple epic ingredient by the first centurya.d.,theThebaidis dotted with references to the Argonauts' quest for the Golden Fleece, including a narrative flashback of the crew's time at Lemnos. Following in a long tradition of cross-contamination between Argonautic and Theban literary texts, Statius' poem also evokes works of literature which narrate the legend, notably theArgonauticasof Apollonius Rhodius and (...)
