Antony Augoustakis, Professor of Classics and Medieval Studies, has just published a collection of articles in the series Oxford Readings in Classical Studies, titled Flavian Epic.

The epics of the three Flavian poets—Silius Italicus, Statius, and Valerius Flaccus—have, in recent times, attracted the attention of scholars, who have re-evaluated the particular merits of Flavian poetry as far more than imitation of the traditional norms and patterns.

Drawn from 60 years of scholarship, this edited collection is the first volume to collate the most influential modern academic writings on Flavian epic poetry, revised and updated to provide both scholars and students alike with a broad yet comprehensive overview of the field.
