Translation From Statius' Thebaid

This is a translation I made of Statius' Thebaid, Liber I. It is a little project I began alongside reading Statius' Thebaid. Please take a look if you wish.

I don't know the poem but your English version seems great and pretty heroic, Essorant. You make me want to read the Latin original.
Versionem latinam, Essorant, ignoro, sed quod anglicè fecisti magnum et ferè heroicum mihi videtur. Tu me carmen princeps legere velle facis.
I'm writing in Latin hoping for correction, and not because I'm confident in how I express myself. Latinè scribo ut ab omnibus corrigar, non quod confidenter me exprimam.
