    PDF Historiae PDF ß Ï sustanon.pro historiae kindle, Historiae ePUBA meaningless rating that just means I didn't really enjoy reading this but I'm glad I did There's just too much movement of arms and men in the story Tacitus tells to really grab me too many generals moving and shaking When he focuses away from generals and onto people I'm all in The one liners of course are fabulous The introduction to the World's Classics edition is well worth reading too which is something you can't normally say for these introductions This

    PDF Historiae PDF ß Ï sustanon.pro historiae kindle, Historiae ePUB Well there goes the last major work of Tacitus Over the last month and a bit its been a fun experience going through the Annals and the Histories The histories is an extremely chaotic book both in content and narration Tacitus constantly switches back and forth between events Sometimes this change can be uite unforgiving and without the footnotes I would have probably struggled to notice the change especially for the discussion of Vitellius time in Rome Overall I would divide this book into two parts both in terms of themes and my enjoyment The first portion of the book spans book 1 to book 3 and this is by far my favourite part of the histories Tacitus is at his most cynical and brutal in this section There are very few redeeming moments Tacitus very clearly deals with what he perceives to be a disruption of Roman traditions At the

    PDF Historiae PDF ß Ï sustanon.pro historiae kindle, Historiae ePUBExcellent background for reading Lindsay Davis’s mystery series about a Roman detective—Tacitus is relating the story of the turbulence after Nero’s death when there was no clear line of succession to the position of emperor and military discipline was beginning its long years of decline It’s the year of four emperors ending with Vespasian The events in Gaul and Germany described by Tacitus are woven into Davis’s plots But of course it’s good background in general as well Who should I support? Would I be better off selling him out or pretending to be loyal while secretly negotiating just in case? How depraved can someone be? How much loot can I carry off? All good but of course historical uestions
