About the Authors
  • The reigns of the Julio-Claudian emperors were characterized by murder and debauchery. This book presents a narrative of these reigns, ranging from Augustus to Nero, with passages in original Latin from Tacitus, Suetonius and Seneca. The text accordingly exposes Augustus' adulterous affairs; the depraved Tiberius; the extravagance and madness of Caligula; the ineffective Claudius; and Nero's artistic pretensions. Featuring a comprehensive introduction, detailed notes and an appreciation of each writer, the volume is essential reading for students who have completed an introductory Latin course.

    • Offers genuinely exciting, horrific and moving Latin passages dealing with a central period of Roman history
    • Provides detailed notes and a full vocabulary aimed at the student who has completed an introductory Latin course
    • Brings the selections alive as literature through passages of historical comment and literary criticism

    Reviews & endorsements

    '… students and instructors who choose this book as a post-beginners text will find much to engage with. It is not easy to learn Latin as an adult and there is no way to make it easy, but the more interesting and helpful we can make it the better, and this volume certainly does that.' Classics Ireland
