This reader consists of 90 selections illustrating the history of Rome from the myth of Aeneas to the founding of the Augustan Principate. The selections have been chosen with three aims in mind: gradual increase in length and difficulty, continuity of subject matter, and stylistic variety. Historical background is provided in the prefaces to the selections. The present letterpress edition is more convenient to use than its predecessor of 1962. The notes have been extensively revised and the vocabulary has been newly compiled.

PIERIDES III, Editors: Myrto Garani and David Konstan Despite the Romans' reputation for being disdainful of abstract speculation, Latin poetry from its very beginning was deeply permeated by Greek philosophy. Philosophical elements and commonplaces have been identified and appreciated in a wide range of writers, but the extent of the Greek philosophical influence, and in particular the impact of Pythagorean, Empedoclean, Epicurean and Stoic doctrines, on Latin verse has never been fully in...

Ich, Claudius, Kaiser und Gott

Author: Robert von Ranke-Graves

Publisher: Ullstein eBooks

ISBN: 3843708037

Category: Fiction

Page: 352

Claudius, Kaiser wider Willen, der im Herzen ein überzeugter Demokrat geblieben ist, von seiner vierten Frau, Agrippina, der Mutter Neros, vergiftet - seinem Schicksal nicht entging: Dieser Herrscher ist im Urteil der Zeitgenossen schlecht weggekommen. Von Ranke Graves unternimmt mit seinem Werk eine Art historische Ehrenrettung. Er würdigt Claudius als einen besonnenen, klugen Monarchen der, aus einer Laune heraus auf den Thron gesetzt, regieren musste und konnte. Das klassische Meisterwerk des amüsant-ironischen Romans lässt auf spannende und unterhaltsame Weise die römische Geschichte wieder lebendig werden und weicht dabei nie von den historischen Fakten ab. Ein berühmt gewordenes, in 16 Sprachen übersetztes Buch mit einer deutschen Gesamtauflage von über 1 Million Exemplaren.
