Carole Newlands (Ph.D. Berkeley) Carole Newlands’ current principal areas of research are Augustan and post Augustan poetry; she has also strong interests in late Antique and Medieval poetry, in Roman and medieval art, and in the reception of classical texts. Her first book was on Ovid’s Fasti: Playing with Time: Ovid and the Fasti (Cornell University Press 1995), and she continues to publish on Ovid’s poetry. Her recent work is on Statius:  a monograph Statius Siluae and the Poetics of Empire (Cambridge 2002), a commentary on Siluae Book 2 for the Cambridge Greek and Latin series, and a book on Statius for Duckworth’s Literature and Society series.  She is co-editing with William J. Domink the Brill Companion to Statius. Her interest in reception led to an article on the first translation of Ovid’s Fasti (Hermathena) and to work in progress on the later appropriations of Ovid, Lucan, and Statius.
