Tacitus and the Tacitean tradition by T. James Luce( )

20 editions published between 1993 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 1,390 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume distinguished scholars from both sides of the Atlantic explore the work of Tacitus in its historical and literary context and also show how his text was interpreted in the sixteenth through eighteenth centuries. Discussed here, for example, are the ways predilections of a particular age color one's reading of a complex author and why a reexamination of these influences is necessary to understand both the author and those who have interpreted him. All of the essays were first prepared for a colloquium on Tacitus held at Princeton University in March 1990. The resulting volume
Livy : the composition of his history by T. James Luce( Book )

25 editions published between 1977 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Luce considers to what extent Livy may be said to have been in control of his historical material. What is the significance, the author asks, of the units by which Livy structured his history? How did he go about preparing himself to write, and what methods did he use in the course of actual composition? Did he have an interpretation of his own concerning the overall course of Roman history, and, if so, how did it affect his selection and arrangement of material?The author examines these questions largely by the means of an analysis of Books 31-45, which he compares with the work of Polybius. He then scrutinizes the design of the history as a whole, its author's attitude toward his srouces generally, and his method of composition. A final chapter considers how Livy's use of material may have been influenced by his view of change and development in Roman history, particularly with regard to the genesis and declince of the Roman national character. By examining LIvy's method of creation, Professor Luce extends our understanding of his achievement.T.J.

The rise of Rome : books one to five by Livy( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Romulus and Remus, the rape of Lucretia, Horatius at the bridge, the saga of Coriolanus, Cincinnatus called from his farm to save the state - these and many more stories immortalized by Livy in his history of Rome have become part of our cultural heritage." "The historian's huge work consisted of 142 books which trace Rome's history from its foundation in 753 BC to events in Livy's own lifetime (9 BC). Only 35 books survive in their entirety. These first five books cover the period from Rome's beginnings and her first great foreign conquest, the capture of the Etruscan city of Veii, to her first major defeat, the sack of the city by the Gauls in 390 BC. This new translation is based on R.M. Ogilvie's Oxford Classical Text, the best to date."--Jacket
