Fall of the Roman Republic: Marius, Sulla, Crassus, Pompey, Caesar, Cicero: six lives by Plutarch( Book )

"Dramatic artist and philosopher, Plutarch is widely regarded as the most significant writer of his era, and this collection, taken from his Lives, illuminates the twilight of the old Roman Republic from 120 to 43 B.C. Here he provides sharp and succinct biographies of the greatest statesmen of this turbulent period. Whether describing the power struggle between Marius and Sulla, the battle between Crassus and Spartacus, the death of political idealist Cato, Julius Caesar's brilliant but bloody triumph in Gaul or the eloquent oratory of Cicero, all these accounts offer a fascinating insight into an empire wracked by political divisions

The aerodrome : a love story by Rex Warner( Book )

99 editions published between 1941 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1941, The Aerodrome is one of the few works of fiction in the twentieth century to understand the dangerous yet glamorous appeal of fascism and the less than satisfactory answer of traditional democracy - and to transmute their deadly opposition into terms of enduring art. Rex Warner brilliantly invents, on one side, a thoroughly degenerate Village representing fallen man, and on the other side a great Aerodrome dedicated to ruthless efficiency. The ideological struggle between the idealistic Air Vice-Marshal and the hero-narrator from the Village is portrayed with poetry, narrative speed, and great simplicity of language. It is a great symbolic novel of our time, as pertinent today as when it was written

El joven César presentaba los primeros pasos de César en el turbulento mundo de la política romana. Aquí aparece ya como hombre maduro, guerrero, legislador, gobernante, profundo conocedor de la naturaleza humana y finalmente como el hombre más poderoso del imperio romano. Toda la obra es un monólogo interior que el dictador se recita a sí mismo durante el insomnio, la noche que precede a su asesinato. Apartándose de lo anecdótico Warner logra transmitir la talla humana e intelectual de Julio César
