Annals of Imperial Rome - (rev edition

Annals of Imperial Rome (ISBN10: 0140440607; ISBN13: 9780140440607)
ISBN13: 978-0140440607
ISBN10: 0140440607

Summary: History as fact, rhetoric, psychology and art.

In The Annals of Imperial Rome, his last and greatest work, Tacitus (AD c.55-c.117) covers the period from AD 14 (just before the death of Augustus) to the death of Nero in AD 68. Not all the passages have survived. But in those that have, the depth and diversity of genius are manifest. From a vicious, vituperative biography of Tiberius to the more straightforward account of Gaius (Caligula), Claudius and Nero
, which reveal an extraordinary gift for pictorial description, the Annals carry conviction both as a work of art and as a history.

Michael Grant's translation of The Annals of Imperial Rome is a fine one. It captures the emotional patriotism of Tacitus's moral tone, offset by a lucid understanding that Rome is doomed and conveys with cinematic vigour the lives of the great emperors who laid the foundations of modern Europe.
