Product Overview

This volume reprints eighteen classic essays on Livy to give an idea of the range of approaches which have been taken in studying the great historian. In particular the essays demonstrate the steady rise in Livy's stock among modern historians as our ideas of what ancient historians were trying to achieve have changed. Attention is focused on Livy's literary style and the structure and narrative of his Ab Urbe Condita. Other essays look at his handling of sources and overall methodology, but the book is not aimed primarily at assessing how reliable a historian he was, more in contextualising his work.
