Chaucer and the "Thebaid" Scholia.

Studies in Philology 61 (1964): 599-615.

Describes the commentaries and glosses that are included in medieval manuscripts of Statius's "Thebaid," and shows that Chaucer was influenced by such glosses in details and passages of HF, Anel, TC, and KnT. The influence of Statius and the glosses indicate Chaucer's "intimate acquaintance, familiarity, and fondness" for this material.
